Peru edge win over Canada at home

Canada coach Arnd Ludwig said despite the loss his team can take some positives out of the game
Lima, Peru, September 8, 2010 – The Canadian national women’s Volleyball team took Peru to the limit on Monday but fell in five sets (20-25, 26-24, 25-17, 11-25, 25-13) in the sixth match of its south and central America tour in preparation for the 2010 FIVB Women’s World Championship in Japan from October 29-November 14.

The Canadians completed a five match series last week against Argentina earning one victory.  Both Peru and Canada, ranked 17th and 24th in the world respectively, are also preparing for the world championships.  

"It was easy to find our flow tonight,” Canadian setter Lauren O’Reilly said. “They are a very good defensive team, but we stuck in the rallies and felt more confident on the court and even though we lost we definitely got better tonight."

Sarah Pavan led the Canadian attack with 18 points while Tiffany Dodds added 15.

"I saw a different team on the court,” Canada coach Arnd Ludwig said following the match. “We were very aggressive, had very good positive energy.  At the end of the second and fifth sets we just made too many errors and weren't precise enough, which cost us in the end.”

Canada is the midst of an 18-day tour and will play four more matches against Peru this week before concluding the trip in Costa Rica.  The next Canada-Peru match is Tuesday night.
