TORONTO – The Western Mustangs women's volleyball team lost in straight sets (18-25, 15-25, 19-25) to the Ryerson Rams in the Ontario University Athletics semifinal on Friday night in Toronto.
The Ryerson Rams came out ready to play right from the get go. After losing to the Mustangs at home two weeks ago, the Rams were hungry for some redemption. They were seemingly in complete control the whole game and prevented the Mustangs from going on any big runs. The Mustangs took a couple brief leads in the second and third set but were not able to maintain a lead for a sustained period of time. The Mustangs also seemed to shoot themselves in the foot at times with many unforced errors that prevented them from getting any momentum going.
Gazette Player of the Game
