The Dalhousie women’s volleyball team has a two-game winning streak going into their rescheduled match against Acadia Jan. 25.

After losing the first set 25 – 21, the Tigers were able to rally back and win the next three sets for a 3 – 1 victory over the Aigles Bleus Jan. 22. The win temporarily moves the Tigers past Cape Breton to second place in the AUS standings.

Conference first team all-star Louise Facca was named player of the game with 20 kills, 48 total attempts and a .208 hitting percentage.

The Tigers take on the 3 – 7 Acadia Axewomen at the Dalplex Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. The match was originally scheduled for the Friday before but was cancelled due to inclement weather.
