Providence volleyball teams return to action
2017-01-13
 
The Providence Pilots men’s volleyball team consolidated their second-place position in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference on Wednesday by beating Les Rouges de l’Universite de Saint-Boniface in four sets.
 
Pilots left side Adrian Dyck led the way with 19 kills and five digs while setter Lucas Pappel contributed 45 assists.
 
Head coach Scott Masterson was delighted with the result, as, he explained, Les Rouges are a “scrappy” team.
 
“We definitely had to step up our game throughout the match, and I thought the guys did a good job of that,” he said. “We played better as the match went on, and I was pleased with the progress that was made.”
 
Now 8-2 in MCAC play, the Pilots are six points clear of the third-ranked University of Winnipeg College Wesmen and just two back of the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers.
 
In women’s action the Pilots lost a five-set nail-biter to USB, although they managed to erase a two-set deficit before dropping the decisive frame.
 
Nevertheless, the women’s team, which has already won its National Christian College Athletic Conference region and finished second at the NCCAA National Championship, remains atop the MCAC standings with six weeks to go before the play-offs.
 
The Pilots men’s and women’s squads will return to the court Friday and Saturday for back-to-back appointments with the Assiniboine Community College Cougars in Brandon.
