Spartans Shut-out USC Trojans

Langley, British Columbia -In front of a near capacity crowd at the Trinity Western University the Spartan men's volleyball team knocked off the University of Southern California Trojans (NCAA division I) 3-0 (25-23, 25-22, 32-30.

The first set was a battle as both teams exchanged points, but neither was allowed to gain any control of the match. Then with the two teams tied at 22, the Spartans were able to close out the set with a 3-1 run and take the win 25-23.

Set two was looking to be the same as the first set, until, with the two teams tied at 7-7, the Spartans went on a 7-2 run to take control. USC rallied to close to within one point, 21-22, but kills by Jason Hofer and Justin Pankratz helped the Spartans to close out the set 25-22. "It was good to see Hofer back on the court; he made a great difference for us all over the court," said TWU head coach Ron Pike.

The third set was the best of the match. Knowing that a loss would dismiss any chances of USC winning the West Coast tournament, the Trojans came out hard and fast against the Spartans. Led by the serving of Gio Altamura the Trojans jumped out to a 7-0 lead, which they continued to build to nine points at 14-5.

When you play rally point a nine point lead is almost insurmountable...almost. Down 14-5, TWU head coach Ron Pike called a timeout to rally his troops.

That's when it got exciting and the 1700 plus Spartan fans got rowdy. Led by Chris Meehan, the Spartans rallied and when the dust had settled the Spartans had tied the match at 23. "I thought Meehan did a great job of leading us back into the game," said Pike. "He got us going with his serving and then he made some great plays at the net to help finish off the set."

Neither team would give in for the next fourteen points as the two teams remained deadlocked at 30-30. Justin Pankratz found the floor to give the Spartans a 31-30 lead, and then USC's Jeff Bailey narrowly missed the court on his attack to give the Spartans the game and the match.

"It was exciting for the fans to see us come back like that," said Ron Pike. "I was really happy to see that we had a little guts tonight. We were strong against a USC team that was serving the ball really well."

Jason Hofer led the Spartans with 18 kills, while teammate Chris Meehan added 7 kills, 2 aces and 3 blocks. USC was led by Joaa Grangeiro with 15 kills.

The Spartans host the UBC Thunderbirds Saturday morning to wrap up the round robin part of the West Coast Tournament. The winner will move on to the Gold Medal match Saturday night at 8:00 pm, while the loser will be playing in the Bronze medal match at 6:00 pm. Both matches will be played at TWU.

Match Notes: The 1750 fans was the largest crowd to ever watch a men's volleyball match at Trinity Western University...
