Game Recap

Men's Volleyball (Conference)
Saturday, February 01, 2003
TWU Spartans (3) vs. the University of Calgary Dinos (2)
(25-12, 21-25, 15-25, 25-19, 15-11)

A Roller Coaster Ride to Victory

Langley, British Columbia - Well, it wasn't three straight, but men's volleyball still pulled out the win in a tough, tough battle at home between two teams who really wanted that fourth seed. TWU and Calgary fought hard, and the Spartans came out with the win, 3-2 (25-12, 21-25, 15-25, 25-19, 15-11).

In the beginning it looked like Trinity Western was going to pull off the three-set sweep necessary to grab fourth place after last night's loss. They absolutely dominated the first set, blowing away the Dinos 25-12 with a .579 attack percentage to the visitors' zero. Up by four (8-4) at the first media timeout, the Spartans continued to build on that lead and were up six (16-10) at the second timeout. Despite subbing several players in and out in an attempt to get the best lineup out on the court, the Dinos could not get anything going.

The tide turned slightly in the second set as the Dinos jumped out to an early lead, 9-5. The closest the Spartans came was within two, 16-14. The turning point in the set, and, at the time, the match, was a missed call by the referee. Chris Roy went up for the block on Calgary's Denis Zhukov only to have the ball fall between him and the net. Reacting purely on reflexes, he kicked the ball up and kept it in play (a legal play). Unfortunately the ref had blown his whistle to end the play, calling it a point for the Dinos. After conferring with his umpire, he was forced to call a re-serve on the play, which resulted in a point for Calgary and a lost opportunity for TWU. The Spartans never regained their focus and lost the set.

Trinity Western's shaken mental focus carried over into the third set and resulted in the second lopsided set of the match. Calgary, still feeling the sting from their own embarrassing first-set loss, turned the tables on the Spartans and attacked at a rate of .591 efficiency to TWU's .083. However, neither team was having its way at the service line, as the set featured a streak of 5 consecutive service errors on both sides of the net, for a total of 12.

Just to keep their fans guessing as to what could happen next, the Spartans came back in the fourth to overpower the Dinos once more. Taking the lead at 3-2 and never relinquishing it, this set was marked by an impressive offensive display on both sides of the net. Jason Hofer, Chris Meehan and Justin Pankratz were particularly outstanding.

The home crowd cheered its team on to victory in the final set, urging the Spartans to maintain their momentum. The Dinos were within two or three points for most of the game, but could not overcome that last deficit. TWU's victory was sealed with an exclamation mark by Meehan, who pounded home the winning point with a huge kill.

Coach Ron Pike was proud of his team, saying, "It's good to win at home on the last night [of the season]. It's good for the seniors. The big thing is that we contained Zhukov tonight, and credit goes to Hofer for that. He had some great blocks on him."

Denis Zhukov led Calgary with 21 kills, 2 aces and 4 blocks. Hofer had 16 kills, 2 aces, 7 digs and 6 blocks to lead the Spartans.

Game Notes: TWU had 14 blocks to Calgary's 7...the Spartans had 5 players hitting over .300 tonight, to finish with a .351 attack efficiency...with neither side serving well, there was a total of 36 serving errors... due to the points system, despite having the better record (9-11) TWU will finish in 5th place and Calgary (8-12) will finish in 4th...both teams are in the Canada West Quarterfinals beginning next weekend...
