Spartans Settle For Split

Langley, British Columbia - The Trinity Western University men's volleyball team sent a depleted lineup up against the University of Calgary Dinos Saturday night in Canada West conference play. Playing without outside hitter Jason Hofer and CIS 2002 Rookie of the Year Chris Meehan, the Spartans were unable to stay with the Dinos as they dropped the match 3-1 (19-25, 25-20, 22-25, 20-25).

"I'm proud of the way the guys played this weekend. They fought hard and were steady for good portions of the match tonight," said TWU head coach Ron Pike. "We have a little work to do to shore up some the of the things that Jason Hofer and Chris Meehan do for us, so it should be a good week of practices as we get ready for UBC."

After the two teams split the first two sets with nearly identical scores (19-25, 25-20), the Dinos took the third set 25-22 and control of the match.

Sensing the opportunity for the win, the Dinos jumped out 16-11 in the fourth set. After obtaining the sizable lead the Dinos played sideout volleyball to take the fourth set 25-20.

Chris Roy (15 kills) and Luke Bainard (12 kills) led the Spartans, while Eric von Englebrecht (14 kills) led the Dinos. Calgary's Glen Handley led both teams with 16 digs.

Next up for the Spartans is hosting the University of British Columbia on Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16. Game time both nights is set for 8:00 PM.

Game Notes: The Dinos had 37.2% kill efficiency, while TWU had 26.7%...The Spartans had ten team blocks, while Calgary had eight...
