(ST. JOHN'S, NL) The visit to an island, in the north Atlantic, in late January, was the easy part for the UNB Varsity Reds.
Facing the Memorial Sea-Hawks was the hard part.
The Sea-Hawks completed a weekend sweep of the VReds with a 3-0 win, on Sunday.
Memorial improves to 8-and-5 with the three match sweep and moves into second place in the AUS standings.
The Varsity Reds fall to 3-and-11, good for fifth.
The teams exchanged points throughout the opening set, but Memorial was able to take an early lead behind a couple of big kills from Jill Snow. Memorial used the momentum to win the first set 25-21.
The Sea-Hawks followed the first set victory with a very strong second set, controlling the majority of the play and cruising to a 25-10 victory.
Memorial would prove to be too strong for the Varsity Reds and completed the sweep… their third this weekend… with a 25-18 win.
The Sea-Hawks are in Halifax next weekend to take on the first place Dalhousie Tigers, while UNB has the weekend off.
