Pilots vs Les Rouges
2014-01-29

 

The Universite de Saint-Boniface traveled to Otterburne on Friday night to face off in volleyball action. The women took to the court first at 6:00pm followed by the men at 8:00. The Pilots women’s volleyball team entered Friday night’s match riding a 9 game winning streak and looking to improve to 10 in a row. The Saint-Boniface currently holds a strong grasp on 3rd place in the MCAC hoping for a win against Providence bringing them closer to the 2nd place College Wesmen. Saint-Boniface would make it difficult for the Pilots pushing them to 4 sets before falling 3-1. Coach Masterson had these words to say after the match, “I thought USB came out and played a great match. It was the first time we were really pushed and I think it was good for us to have to work hard for the win. They seemed to dig everything we threw at them and it made for some really exciting rallies. I thought our players responded well to the challenge and it was good to still come out on top this time. I know we will expect much of the same from them the next time we play this semester.” Top players for the Pilots were: Kate Osadchuk with 13 kills, 9 digs, and 1 ace, Lauren Toews with 10 kills, 5 digs, and 3 aces, and Chelsea Needham with 9 kills, 10 digs, and 4 aces.

The men’s match showed improvement as the Pilots controlled the game leading into the 5th set. The Universite de Saint-Boniface played a superior 5th set taking the match 3 games to 2. Coach Peters had this to say after the match, “We played a poor 5th set, and had a couple of earlier bouts of inconsistency which cost us the match. We continue to take small steps towards being a good team, but we have a ways to go before we are where we want to be.” Eric Wiebe had 3 aces, and 17 kills leading all Pilots attackers. Josh Doerksen contributed with 1 ace, 7 kills and a 2.29 passing average.
