Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The return of Erica Scott proved to be just what the Cougars (2-6) needed as Assiniboine rolled to back-to-back wins at home against the Providence Pilots (0-4).

On Friday, Scott returned and helped lead the attack with nine kills in a sweep (25-20, 25-10, 25-10) over the Pilots. 

Paige Donald was unstoppable, adding 10 kills as she continued to find the line deep in the court on the Providence defense which had no answer for the two Assiniboine left sides. 

Jordanna Chartrand chipped in with nine digs while Kalin Winter had 19 assists.

Saturday was a carbon copy of the previous night as the Cougars took three straight sets (27-25, 25-12, 25-23). 

Scott led the Cougars with 12 kills while Winter and Donald added five.

Jessi Coulter was instrumental in the victory with 13 digs, three kills and two aces.

The Cougars hit the break in fourth place in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference.

The team returns to the court Jan. 11 in Winnipeg and hosts their first home game against CMU on Jan. 25 and 26 in Brandon.
