WINNIPEG — The Manitoba Bisons men’s volleyball team opened up their season with a win on Thursday night at Investors Group Athletic Centre.
The Herd beat the Calgary Dinos 3-1 (24-26, 25-17, 25-21, 26-24).
“Both teams had their jitters,” said Bisons head coach Garth Pischke, who is starting his 33rd year with the Bisons men’s volleyball team.
The Manitoba women weren’t so fortunate, dropping their first game of the season to the Dinos 3-2 in a close match (25-23, 22-25, 25-19, 19-25, 15-10).
“We were down 2-1 and it was good to get to the fifth set,” said Bisons head coach Ken Bentley.
Both teams will meet again tonight for a rematch at 6 p.m. (women) and 8 p.m. (men).
