On Saturday, Nov. 4 the women’s Seawolves volleyball team took on the Mount Allison (MTA) Mounties in their second game of the weekend.

UNBSJ lost the day before in a match against the Mount Saint Vincent Unviversity Mystics and were looking to redeem themselves on the home court.

The match had a positive start when Seawolves player number 5, Sumire Maillet, stepped up to serve. Her skill earned UNBSJ eight consecutive points in the first set. The home team continued to dominate the court as MTA attempted to keep up. 25-11 was the final score of the set for UNBSJ.

UNBSJ continued to own the court as the second set began. The Seawolves wouldn’t let up while the Mounties wouldn’t back down, but the visiting team was not able to keep up. The set ended with a score of 25-14 for UNBSJ.

MTA picked up their game in the third set and gave the Seawolves a run for their money. The Mounties kept the score too close for comfort near the end of the match and forced the Seawolves to play harder. Despite the effort from MTA, UNBSJ won the set 25-22, giving them a 3-0 win for the match.
