Evening results from Day One of the 1999 CIAU Women's Volleyball
Championship
Tournament from Edmonton

Match #3

#2 University of Manitoba Bisons vs. #7 University of Toronto Varsity Blues

Manitoba wins 3-0 (15-11, 15-11, 15-3). Manitoba looked a litle out of sorts
in G1. They made a lot of unforced errors early and Toronto took a 10-3
lead. From there Manitoba got their act together and won G1 15-11 and then
finished off the match, but looked unpolished in doing so. When they had
good passes in the first game, Manitoba was using their middles very
effectively running the 31, but for some reason, even when they had good
passes later in the match (which were the exception, not the rule) they went
away from it. Toronto's Varsity Blues played well but were ultimately
overmatched.

Match #4

#3 University of Alberta Pandas vs. #6 Universite de Montreal Carabins

Pandas win 3-0 (15-7, 15-9, 15-9). A fairly good opening match for the
four-time defending champions. In each of G1and G2, the Pandas got off to a
slow start, but recovered to win. G3, on the other hand, was the opposite.
The Pandas leapt out to a 12-0 lead, threatening to post the second bagel of
the tournament, but after a couple of substitutions, U of A seemed to lose
their concentration and let Montreal back into the game. At 12-9, the Pandas
settled back down and closed out the match. Credit to les Carabins for not
throwing in the towel at 12-0 in G3. They put up a spirited fight and made
it interesting.

**Both Alberta and Manitoba will need to pick up the level of their play if
they want to compete with #1 UBC who played flawlessly earlier
Thursday(albeit in a lopsided match-up).
