Royals beat Cascades women’s volleyballers in three sets

The Douglas Royals dealt the University of the Fraser Valley women’s volleyball team its first loss of the campaign on Friday evening in New Westminster.

The Cascades, coming off a pair of wins over the Columbia Bible College Bearcats last weekend, dropped a three-set decision (25-18, 25-17, 25-21) to the Royals to fall to 2-1 on the season.

“Douglas played very well tonight,” Cascades head coach Mike Gilray said. “We had some excellent plays but could not get anything rolling.”

The Cascades had gotten great production from middles Monique Huber and Mandelyn Erikson in their last outing, a four-set win over CBC last Saturday, and the duo continued to demonstrate great chemistry with setter Nicole Blandford against Douglas.

Gilray was also pleased with the play of Keira Fisher off the bench as the Cascades switched to a 6-2 offensive system with starting right side Kara Williams taking over the setting duties.

The Cascades get another crack at the Royals on Saturday, in a 5 p.m. start at the New Westminster campus.
