‘Wolves Rebound to Win 3-0

Hugh Mullally | Volleyball (W)

What a difference a day makes. The women’s volleyball team showed that and more in a 3-0 win Sunday over the Brock Badgers (25-22, 25-15, 25-23).

The serves were tough and the sets on-target in Sunday’s game, as the ‘Wolves rebounded from Saturday’s 3-1 loss to the Badgers to even their OUA record at 2-2.

“Well slow starts today but the discussions we had yesterday and this morning came through. The girls played with a more positive energy and a loose demeanour. We had to keep the ball away from Brock’s libero. If we did that we knew we would increase our chances to be successful. Yesterday that plan looked like a far cry, today we punched the right numbers.”

Sara Potter’s number was certainly one of the right ones. She came off the bench in the first set and put in work on the left side and from the service line. After three kills at the net, she came around to serve with Lakehead training 21-16. With confidence she led her team on a 8-0 run until finally serving one into the net, but got her team right back into the game and to a set 1 win.

Potter totalled 9 kills on 19 swings with just 1 hitting error and added 9 digs.

Fifth year Jen Casey had her best game since returning from injury, as she relieved rookie Catherine Klassen on the right side in the second set and used a combination of finesse and power in her approach, scoring 7 kills on 11 attempts with 1 error.

Vanessa Masters bounced back from a uncharacteristically rusty start Saturday and had Lakehead’s offense running smooth, with 33 assists to show for it. On defense, Alyssa Genereux was the x-factor in keeping many rallies alive, making 14 digs on the game.

For the Badgers, Maddie Brown led with 9 points (6 kills, 3 blocks), and Brianna Hamilton also scored 9 points.

“Over all we as a staff are proud of the girls for their work tonight correcting their last night’s mistakes. That is very welcome progress. The team can feel better for sure, but need to continue our growth as a unit in our attitude, focus and method of execution. The girls just have to have fun when they play and stop applying pressure to their game. We now prep for a 3 game weekend on the road, so some tough sledding ahead.” – Chris Green

The ‘Wolves play a pair in Waterloo Nov 13-14 before taking on McMaster Nov 15.
