WOLFVILLE, N.S. – The Axewomen volleyball team swept a weekend matchup against the visiting UNB Reds with a 3-0 match win in the second of two games last weekend against UNB.
The opening set was an exchange of points and not until a UNB service error was there a separation between both teams at 9-9.
The Axewomen went on a five-point tear to take a 14-10 lead that eventually formed a 19-11 Axewomen advantage.
A DeWolfe kill and a UNB attack error gave the Axewomen a 25-18 opening set win.
Acadia separated themselves from the Reds quickly in the second set with a 10-7 lead but UNB worked back to a 13-13.
The third and eventual final set was no different from the previous two. A tight back and forth battle was decided on the last points. The Axewomen possessed the largest lead of 17-14 but UNB worked back to close the gap to 23-21.
Ahead 23-22, a kill by Lucy Glen-Carter followed by a second kill by Taylor Collombin ended the set 25-22 and a 3-0 Acadia match win. Hannah Helm was named the Subway Player of the Match with five timely kills and a great defensive effort. UNB’s Paige Lehto was named the Reds’ Player of the Match. UNB will head home and prepare to host the AUS teams in a mid-season tournament this weekend.
