Hello, sports fans! Welcome back to another exciting week in Brandon University Bobcats sports!
Volleyball: This week in volleyball the women’s team played three games at home in the Healthy Living Centre. The men took a week off and will be getting ready for next week’s games when the volleyball teams will face off with the University of Manitoba Bisons.
The women had a very successful weekend, as they won every single match. The women would finish the weekend with nine sets won and a single set lost. It was a great turnout for the Bobcats after having some rocky matches in the season’s earlier tournaments.
The women actually played two games the same day on Friday, beating both Lakehead University and the University of Winnipeg. Saturday was another game against Wesmen and the women took a clean sweep from them, offering up few mistakes and little opportunities for their opponents. The women’s best set was recorded as a 25-1 win and their closest set was 26-24, both in the same game against Wesmen on the 13th.
Basketball: This week in basketball both men and women played games but earned few points positively to their records. In fact out of the five games played this weekend in basketball only the women’s game on Friday yielded positive results.
The women played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, winning their one match 99-41 against Dakota College. Saturday and Sunday were different stories as the women lost to the University of Windsor by 12 points but were completely blown out of the water by the University of Regina by 52 points.
The men played both of their games against the University of Jamestown to no avail. The games both ended in losses for the men, losing on Friday 85-103 and Saturday 83-97.
The men’s and women’s regular season begins on the 27th of October when they will face off with the University of Lethbridge our in Alberta.
Soccer: This past week in soccer the men and women played against the ACC Cougars and Canadian Mennonite University Blazers. The games against the Cougars proved very fruitful for both Bobcats teams as they each scored 8 goals and dominated the pitch! As of Saturday the men’s record sits at 3-3-1 while the women go 5-2.
