EDMONTON — The Winnipeg Wesmen are going to have to shake off a winless weekend heading into two crucial conference matches.
The Wesmen women's volleyball team lost its second straight match Saturday, dropping a 3-0 (25-18, 25-20, 25-22) Canada West conference decision to the Alberta Pandas.
The Wesmen (2-6) next face the Manitoba Bisons in a key home-and-home series that starts Friday at the Duckworth Centre and concludes Saturday at the U of M.
"We did a little bit better defending their veteran attackers and overall we were in two of the three sets right from the get-go," Wesmen head coach Phil Hudson said. "I thought we played a lot better, a lot more battle, a lot more fight and a lot more determination from our group tonight."
The Wesmen hit .132 for the match, but went at a .325 clip in the second set.
Alberta hit .314 for the night. Kory White led the Pandas (4-4) with 16 kills and 12 digs.
