Daniel Thiessen had a match-high 11 kills and the Winnipeg Wesmen men's volleyball team secured its first non-conference win against a U Sports opponent Monday night in Halifax.
Thiessen hit .529 for the match and made just two errors in 17 swings as the Wesmen downed the Dalhousie Tigers 3-0 (26-24, 25-18, 25-14). The Wesmen moved to 2-2 in the non-conference season with the victory. Winnipeg's other non-conference win came in an exhibition match with the CMU Blazers.
Winnipeg held Dal to .160 attacking for the match, including .029 in the second set and .040 in the third.
Kobe Shannon's seven kills topped the Tigers.
The two teams meet again Tuesday night before the Wesmen move on to Fredericton, N.B. for a pair of matches against the UNB Varsity Reds Wednesday and Thursday.
