Just like the night before, the T-Birds jumped out to early leads that the Huskies couldn’t surmount. In the first set, UBC had a nine point lead to start. In the second set Saskatchewan scored just one point in the first seven points recorded.
Saskatchewan matched UBC point-for-point in the third set, even having the lead twice. But an Abigail Keeping service run that included an ace gave the T-Birds back the lead.
UBC’s trouble in the match came on serving with 12 errors in the matching including eight in the first set and a half.
Lisa Barclay led the T-Birds with 10 kills, seven digs and two block assists. Rosie Schlagintweit added another eight kills and seven digs, while Shanice Marcelle had seven kills.
Second-year middle blocker Kayla Tycholiz led the Huskies with five kills and two solo blocks. Libero Haley Williams had five digs.
With the win UBC improves to 5-1 on the season, while the Huskies drop to 1-5.
The Huskies travel to face the No. 1 ranked Trinity Western Spartans next weekend, while UBC remains on the road to face the Calgary Dinos.
