EDMONTON — The Winnipeg Wesmen weren't able to slow down a formidable Alberta attack Saturday in dropping a three-set decision.
The Wesmen men's volleyball team got 11 kills from Daniel Thiessen, but the Golden Bears hit .408 for the night and scored a 3-0 (25-14, 25-16, 25-17) Canada West conference victory.
The Wesmen hit .030 for the night and fell to 2-6 on the season while No. 6-ranked Alberta improved to 6-2.
"Alberta was good, quite a bit better than we were," Wesmen head coach Larry McKay said. "The score was pretty reflective of how the two teams played. They were good and Winnipeg wasn't very good. There really wasn't any area of our game that doesn't need marked improvement before we play our next matches."
Darian Picklyk had a match-high seven digs for the Wesmen, who will now to a home-and-home with the Manitoba Bisons Friday night at home and Saturday at the U of M.
Jackson Kennedy made just one attack error on 20 swings and finished with 14 kills to lead the Bears. Braedon Friesen added eight kills.
