UBC defeats Saskatchewan 3-0

November 12, 2012, Saskatchewan (ISN) – For the second straight night, the No. 2 ranked UBC Thunderbirds exposed the youth of the University Saskatchewan Huskies winning 3-0 (25-12, 25-11, 25-13) Saturday night at the PAC in Saskatoon.

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.
