Marauders open volleyball play with two exhibition wins

The McMaster men’s volleyball team hosted the University of Montreal for two weekend matches in preparation for the Ontario University Athletics season, which opens in three weeks.

The Marauders defeated Montreal 3-0 by set scores of 25-17, 25-18, and 25-23, in the Friday (Sept. 28 opener.

The teams took the court on Saturday for a rematch and it was much the same as the first match with McMaster taking a 3-0 win by set scores of 25-22, 25-19, 25-23.

The Marauders will play two non-conference matches against familiar OUA opponents this week. On Thursday (Oct. 4) McMaster will host Western at 8 p.m. in the Burridge Gym, and the next day the Waterloo Warriors will visit Hamilton to play the Marauders. Game time is again at 8 p.m.
