Pilots volleyball teams split weekend series in Brandon
2017-01-17
 
The Providence volleyball teams returned from Brandon having each split their weekend series against the Assiniboine Community College Cougars.
 
After dropping their opening match 3-1 on Friday the Pilots women rebounded with a 3-1 Saturday victory and consolidated their first-place ranking in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference.
 
The men, too, suffered defeat on Friday but came back to post a straight-sets win on Saturday. Adrian Dyck put down 10 kills in the victory, and Willie Goossen and Hans Fehr executed six and five, respectively. Lucas Pappel recorded 34 assists.
 
“We were much more focussed in our strategic plan for Saturday’s match and I think it gave the guys a lot more purpose in certain areas of the game,” analyzed head coach Scott Masterson. “We still have a long way to go in terms of consistency and improving certain areas of the game in which we’re still struggling, but overall I thought this was a great weekend of development for us.”
 
The Pilots men are presently second in the MCAC standings—just two points back of the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers.
 
In basketball, both Providence teams succumbed to the Red River College Rebels on Saturday, although are still in play-off positions.
 
The women, now 3-5 on the season and third in the province, lost 63-42 at home to Red River, although Lauren Wiebe went 3/4 from the three-point line and scored 11 points. The men, also third in the MCAC, were defeated 110-83.
 
Finally, the Pilots women’s futsal team led 4-3 at the break before running out of gas after the restart, although Julika Kehler netted a hat-trick in the 10-3 loss to Red River. The men, meanwhile, opened their season with an 8-5 defeat to the Rebels.
