Game Recap

Men’s Volleyball (Canada West)
Friday, February 02, 2007
TWU Spartans (0) at the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (3)
(25-17, 25-23, 25-22).

SPARTANS FALL TO T-BIRDS
-TWU loses to UBC for first time in three years.

VANCOUVER
– At some point all good things must come to and end. Tonight the second ranked Trinity Western University men’s volleyball team’s three year winning streak against the fifth ranked University of British Columbia came to a screeching halt as the Thunderbirds defeated the Spartans 3-0 (25-17, 25-23, 25-22) Friday night at War Memorial Gym. The loss is only the second time that TWU has fallen to UBC since January 30, 2001. Over that stretch the Spartans were 22-1.

While both the Thunderbirds (12-5) and the Spartans (12-3) have already clinched a home berth in the opening round of the postseason, the two sides are mired in a three-way race with third-ranked Winnipeg (11-4) for second place in the conference standings. As it stands, UBC and TWU are tied for the number-two spot and Winnipeg is in third, having lost to Calgary tonight, but both the Spartans and the Wesmen have two games in hand on UBC.

The home side set the tone early, jumping out to a 10-5 advantage on the back of some strong serving from Christoph Eichbaum, before running the count to 17-10 on back-to-back blocks from Mike Proudfoot. The T-Birds continued to roll from there, forcing the Spartans hand with an organized attack and some solid defensive play to take the frame 25-17.

It was more of the same to open the second set as the UBC blocking unit repeatedly stymied TWU’s efforts at the net and took a quick 8-3 edge. The Spartans would rally midway through the set, however, shaking off their sluggish start to even the score at 21-21 before a Jeff Stel (Langley, B.C.) kill would give the Spartans a 23-22 lead. But the T-Birds responded in kind, grabbing the next three points on a TWU service error, an ace from Eichbaum and a timely kill by Proudfoot.

Despite being down 2-0 in sets heading into the third stanza, the defending national champions regrouped and came out gunning. Using the strong serving of Josh Howatson (Victoria) and Steve Rogalsky (Matple Ridge, B.C.) the Spartans were able to take an 8-5 lead into the first technical time out. Yet, once again, the T-Birds came together when it counted and broke a 14-14 tie by winning six of the next seven points to go ahead 20-15. The Spartans would cut the deficit to two, 23-21, but a pair of kills from top UBC’s Eichbaum and Andrew Bonner sealed the victory.

Bonner paced the competition with 14 kills and six digs while rallying his side at a number of critical junctures in the match. Eichbaum finished with 10 kills and a match-high eight digs, while Proudfoot put forward a strong all-round performance with seven kills, five digs, three blocks and a 64-percent attack efficiency.

Stel led the Spartans with 10 kills and five digs, while Rogalsky added nine kills and four digs. Josh Doorenbal (Edmonton) had a team-high three blocks.

The two teams do battle again tomorrow at 7 p.m.

Match Notes: UBC finished with 6.5 blocks, while TWU finished with four...the Spartans hit at 22% to the Thunderbirds 31%...TWU had 23 digs, UBC had 31...both teams finished with three service aces...
