Making it back – For the second straight year the Heat will be playing in a win or go home game that also doubles for the Canada West bronze medal. Last year the Heat fell to Trinity Western Spartans in four sets that ended their season, this year the Heat will play UBC for the final Canada West berth to the CIS national championships.
Season Series – UBC Okanagan has yet to defeat their sister school in a women’s volleyball match losing two games earlier in the year: 3-1 (27-25, 25-18, 18-25, 25-19) and 3-2 (25-23, 23-25, 25-15, 20-25, 15-11). Last year these two schools squared off in the opening round of the Canada West Final Four in Vancouver with the T’Birds sending the Heat to the consolation round as a four set loss.
What’s at stake: The winner of this match will not only be the Canada West bronze medalist but they will advance to the CIS championships. The 2015 CIS Women’s Volleyball Championship will be held February 26th to March 1st at the University of Toronto in Toronto, ON.
UBC in Edmonton: One thing the Heat may have in their favour is the Thunderbirds have not fared well in Edmonton this season losing four of six times including a marathon five set loss to U of A min Thursday’s semi-final. UBC also fell in a back to back to MacEwan, a team in just their first season in Canada West.
