Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - On the men's side of ACC volleyball action, the Cougars split their two-game set with Providence.

On Friday, Assiniboine (4-4) couldn't find their game as the Pilots (3-1) defeated the Cougars 3-1 (25-20, 25-27, 26-24, 25-23). 

Paycen Warkentin finished with 12 kills and five blocks while Braden Campbell had eight kills and four blocks.

Saturday provided a measure of redemption for the Cougars as Warkentin was a beast at the net with 15 blocks in a five-set win (25-21, 32-30, 20-25, 10-25, 15-10).

Will Hatherley led the attack with 15 kills, Campbell added 11 and Lucas Vasconcelos had 10 kills.

The men's team go to the break in second spot in the MCAC.

The men play Saint Boniface in Winnipeg on Jan. 11. Their next home game isn't until Jan. 25 against CMU.

In upcoming Cougar's sports action ACC's women's hockey team hosts North Dakota State University on Dec. 1 at 4:30 p.m. and Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. at the Sportsplex in Brandon.
