Marauders chase away Rams


McMaster’s men’s volleyball team made quick work of Ryerson with a three-set sweep of the Rams in Ontario University Athletics play. Friday’s (Feb. 3) game was McMaster’s last home stand for the regular season.

Losing earlier in the season to the Rams in five, the Marauders got revenge winning 25-17, 25-11, 25-21. The Marauders 13th win of the season, against three losses, secured their second place position in the standings. Three teams are behind them with 20 points. Mac is four points out of first place.

Second-year Jori Mantha scored a game-high 10 kills in the match, along with four aces and a game-high six digs. Also hitting double-digit numbers was Jeremy Groenveld with eight kills and two blocks. Setter TJ Sanders recorded 24 assists, returning to the team after a concussion.

For Ryerson, Luka Milosevic scored a team-high six kills for the Rams. Roman Kabanov and Aleksa Miladinovic both had five points in the match.

The Marauders take on the Toronto Varsity Blues and the York Lions on the road next weekend to close out the regular season.
