GWANGJU, South Korea (Team Canada) – The Canadian men’s volleyball team completed its round robin tournament at the 2015 Universiade losing 3-0 (16-25, 25-27, 22-25) against Switzerland on Tuesday in Gwangju.
Having fought hard against Russia the day before, the Canadians saw the Swiss take control early in the game. The Swiss took 10-6 and 21-14 leads in the first set, to ultimately take it 25-16.
Canada offered a better fight in the second frame, but still they could not take control of the match. John Barrett’s squad had an opportunity with a set point at 24-23, but Switzerland levelled the score before stealing the set, 27-25.
The Canadians were unable to turn things around, losing the third set 25-22, thus being swept for a fourth straight game.
Canada will continue the competition on the consolation side of the draw on Thursday against an opponent yet to be determined.
