Gideon's Army

Edmonton, AB - A Spartan men's volleyball team still licking its wounds from the preseason fought bravely tonight, but dropped their match on the road at the #1-ranked University of Alberta 3-1. The #4 Trinity Western team is still without two of its starters: setter Josh Howatson and middle Justin Pankratz, both out with ankle injuries sustained in the Dino Cup tournament.

Tonight's match was "a great showcase of Canada West men's volleyball and a testament to perhaps the toughest conference" in Canada. Both teams hit high percentages on the night-40% for TWU and 37.6% for Alberta-and tallied almost 60 kills apiece (57 and 59, respectively). The Bears finished with three players in double figures in kills, while the Spartans had two.

Trinity Western had a consistently solid night offensively, hitting at least 40% in every set except the fourth, in which they hit 33.3%. Alberta was much more up and down, hitting as low as 11.1% in the second and as high as 70% in the fourth. The final stats were close in every category, but TWU held the edge in most of them, including assists (55-53), digs (26-22), and total team blocks (10-7).

Fifth-year outside hitter Chris Roy dominated at the net tonight with a match-high 23 kills (at 55.3%), as well as five digs and four block assists. First-year Golden Bear Nicholas Cundy led his team with 19 kills (50%), one service ace, six digs and two block assists.

Both teams' setters were involved in nearly every kill, with Alberta's Brock Davidiuk setting up 44 and TWU's Jonathan Rowe 47.

"We fought pretty hard tonight," said Coach Ron Pike. "We're making too many little rhythm mistakes, like who gets what ball, but those are fixable and it's mainly because we've had so many injuries. Roy was outstanding; he had a great night. He kept us in the match and scored some big points."

The bad news from tonight is that third-year middle Chris Meehan also injured his ankle, so now they're down all three Junior National Team players. After the match Coach Pike compared his team to Gideon's army from the Old Testament in the Bible, when God pared his numbers down to a seemingly unusable amount and then used them to defeat a much larger enemy; based on that example, who knows what the season may hold?

TWU plays at Alberta again tomorrow night, Saturday, November 15th at 8:00pm.
