The Dalhousie Tigers got a scare in the opening set with a 26-24 loss, but they remain undefeated this season by cruising to a 3-1 match win over the UNB Reds. 

As last night in their opening set against Acadia, the Reds posted a close 26-24 win over the Tigers. 

Pulling out to an early 8-0 lead in the second set, the Tigers continued putting offensive pressure on the defending Reds. Courtney Baker and Hannah Aldcorn combined for 5 kills to give Dalhousie a 22-8 lead and eventual 25-14 win. 

UNB trailed early in the third set, but bounced back to a 10-13 deficit. The slim margin would not hold as the Tigers capitalized on attack errors and multiple kills from Julie Moore, Victoria Haworth and Courtney Baker and a 25-17 game victory. 

The fourth and final set saw the Tigers pull out to a commanding 12-3 lead that would not be relinquished. Two consecutive kills by Julie Moore would wrap up the fourth set with a 25-18 set and 3-1 match Dalhousie win. 

Courtney Baker took the honours as the AUS Subway Player of the Match. Baker posted 14 kills and recorded 13 digs. Teammate Julie Moore had a match high 18 kills for a 0.311 hitting percentage. Alyssa Harding defended well for the Tigers with 21 digs. 

On the losing end, Siobhan Fitzpatrick was named the Reds' Player of the Match with 13 kills, while Victoria Eadle added 11.
