(MONCTON, N.B.) Les Aigles Bleues de l'Université de Moncton (3-11, 5th in AUS) worked hard, but they couldn't put up the big points and lost 3-0 to the UNB Varsity Reds (7-5, 2nd in AUS) in women's volleyball action at the CEPS Louis-J.-Robichaud gymnasium Friday night.

"We battled in the first set, but we had a bit of difficulty afterwards," said Annie LeBlanc. "We still have things to improve on to come out on top in the last two outings."
"We didn't finish the sets," said Moncton head coach Monette Boudreau-Carroll. "We couldn't put up the points at the end. We served well and we had good reception, but we couldn't put up those last points. It's the story of our season."
Les Aigles Bleues will travel to Halifax to play the Dalhousie Tigers next Friday.
The Varsity Reds travel to play the Acadia Axewomen on Saturday, January 24, at 3pm.
