A Game Won in Straight Sets

On Thursday, the Canadian team led by head coach Shannon Winzer won in straight sets 25-20, 25-15, and 25-22, thus improving to 4-2 and lowering Germany to 1-4.

Captain Alexa Gray scored 19 points, which generated a 37.5% efficiency rate. She was followed close behind by Kiera Van Ryk and Emily Maglio who scored 15 points each. 

On Germany’s side, Lena Stigrot was in the lead with 11 points.

On the other side, Germany managed to generate three extra digs (74-71) while committing fewer unforced errors (11-6).

“We Took Care of Business Today” 

At the end of the spectacular game, coach Winzer issued a statement in which he said they “took care of business”.

He further spoke about their game plan, which was “to take out the German middle attack” starting with service pressure and ending with executing the team’s “blocking assignments“.

Next up, Canada will play against Serbia’s women’s volleyball team on Friday. 

The team has announced the official roster: Calgary’s Alexa Gray and Hilary Johnson, Brie O’Reilly from Langley, B.C., Courtney Baker from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Emily Maglio from Coquitlam, British Columbia, Jazmine White from Oshawa, Ontario, Alicia Ogoms from Winnipeg, Layne Van Buskirk from Windsor, Ontario, Andrea Mitrovic from Mississauga, Ontario, Vicky Savard from Jonquière, Quebec, Kiera Van Ryk from Surrey, British Columbia, Shainah Joseph from Ottawa, Julia Murmann from Toronto, and Kacey Jost from St. Albert, Alberta.

Earlier in the month, the Canadians earned a straight-sets win over the Dominican Republic’s team in the Volleyball Nations League, winning the opening set 25-20 and the second set 25-21 before edging their opponents 25-22 during the third and final clinch.

Coach Winzer called it “a good solid game” for the team that entered the event ranked 11th.
