Game Recap

Men's Volleyball (Conference)
Friday, January 31, 2003
TWU Spartans (1) vs. the University of Calgary Dinos (3)
(26-28, 21-25, 25-17, 21-25)

Individual Effort Not Enough

Langley, British Columbia - In the final weekend of regular season volleyball action TWU's men's volleyball team conceded the first match to visiting Calgary 3-1 (26-28, 21-25, 25-17, 21-25). Both teams are guaranteed playoff spots but this weekend will determine which of the two will have the higher seed going into the post-season-a significant achievement considering the fourth seed has the opportunity to go to Nationals.

The first set was close throughout with both teams trading points. The Spartans had a one-point lead going into both media timeouts, and increased that lead to 18-15 after the second timeout. The Dinos came back to tie it up and the score remained close for the remainder of the game before consecutive kills by Denis Zhukov gave Calgary the win.

The second set did not start well for the Spartans. The Dinos were having their way at the net and quickly built a lead they never relinquished.

It was the third set that appeared to be the turning point for the home team. The Spartans appeared more focused and forced the Dinos into making costly mistakes. Jason Hofer dominated with six kills in the set to lead his team to victory.

TWU had the lead, 8-6, going into the first media timeout in the fourth set but could not keep the momentum upon returning to the floor. Calgary came out with a vengeance, tying it at eight and running away with the game. The Spartans were unable to mount any sort of comeback, finally running out of time to save the game and the match.

A match that was dominated by offense, both teams ended up with a total of 59 kills, with Calgary hitting for the slightly higher percentage of .375 compared to TWU's .354. Calgary's Denis Zhukov tallied an unbelievable 30 kills, while Chris Meehan and Jason Hofer had 16 kills apiece to lead Trinity Western.

"Calgary has an exceptional player in Denis Zhukov," said TWU coach Ron Pike. "Tonight we did not perform in the clutch; that's basically it. We didn't contribute as a group. Chris Meehan was outstanding; he played international level middle [hitter] volleyball tonight."

The Spartan men host the Dinos again tomorrow night at 8:00pm. Come out and cheer your team into the playoffs!

Game Notes: The Spartans had 8 total blocks to the Dinos' 3...but the visitors dominated defensive digs with 53 to TWU's 44...TWU must defeat Calgary 3-0 tomorrow night in order to take fourth place in Canada West...
