‘Wolves Swept by Mustangs

Hugh Mullally | Volleyball (W)

The second time around against the Western Mustangs was no sweeter for the women’s volleyball team, who lost in straight sets, 15-25, 14-25, and 23-25.

From the outset, it did seem like Western was much more comfortable in their play, easily taking the first set 25-15, followed by a 25-14 cruise in the second set.

After the ‘Wolves limited Mustang Kelsey Veltman on Friday, she was nearly unstoppable Saturday, racking up 11 kills on 15 swings. She also had a service ace and 2 blocks.

For Lakehead, Kailan Robinson bounced back after a few lack lustre performances to make 11 kills along with 9 digs and a block. Leah Mousseau was next with 8 kills and 11 digs.

The third set was a much better one for Lakehead, up 22-19 after making some great plays to get the advantage late. Western responded with a 6-1 run that ended the game instead.

The women’s team’s next games are Feb 5, 6, 7 in southern Ontario.
