The Dalhousie Tigers (6-1) were able to escape with a 3-1 (25-17, 14-25, 27-25, 25-16) victory over the Université de Moncton Aigles Bleues (0-7). After a drama filled 3rd set the Tigers were able to put away the resilient Aigles Bleus.

The Aigles Bleus would drop the first set but would respond back with a dominant second set that saw them up 25-14 on the scoreboard. The following set the Aigles Bleues held a 25-24 lead over the Tigers, however, a big point by Lucy Glen-Carter (Toronto, ON) would push Dalhousie from the brink of defeat to a crucial victory in the 3rd set, 27-25. In the 4th set the Tigers would take control from start to finish, eventually finishing off the Aigles Bleues by a score of 25-16.

Outside hitter Lucy Glen-Carter created a ton of problems for the Aigles Bleues defence, consistently getting balls through blocks and punishing Moncton on the attack. Glen-Carter finished with a game-high 18 kills and 24.5 points, lifting the Tigers out of some tough situations. Tigers setter Brett Boldon (Fredericton, NB) was extremely efficient during the match, dishing out an impressive 34 assists.

Outside hitter Sara Chiasson was outstanding on the Aigles Bleues attack, ending the game with a team-high 14 kills and 16 points. Aigles Bleues setter Cassidy Martin was effective in her distribution of the ball, in 4 sets she had 24 assists.

With a game-high 18 kills, Glen-Carter was named the Subway Player of the Game.

The Tigers take to the court tomorrow at 2:00 PM NST against the Acadia Axewomen, while the Aigles Bleus will take on the host Memorial Sea-Hawks at 6:00 PM NST.
