Game Recap

Men’s Volleyball (Canada West)
Saturday, February 10, 2007
TWU Spartans (2) at the University of Alberta Golden Bears (3)
(25-19, 25-18, 17-25, 23-25, 15-10)

SPARTANS FALL, BUT GAIN GROUND
-TWU moves ahead of UBC with five set loss to Alberta

EDMONTON
– Going into the weekend series with the University of Alberta it looked like fourth place Trinity Western would be hosting the very dangerous University of Manitoba in next weeks Canada West playoffs. The sixth ranked Bisons, who are in fifth place, have played in 25 of the last 26 CIS national championships and TWU would need to beat Manitoba if they were going to return to Hamilton to defend their CIS crown.

The third ranked Spartans needed to beat the Golden Bears 3-0 in one match and win the second match or lose by no worse then 3-2 in order to move above the University of British Columbia and into third place. Splitting the weekend series and holding at least a 5-2 advantage in sets was a very tall order, especially on the road against the undefeated, number one team in the country Alberta Golden Bears. But that is just what the Spartans did this weekend. They beat Alberta 3-0 Friday night and fell to the Golden Bears 3-2 (25-19, 25-18, 17-25, 23-25, 15-10) Saturday night. As a result the Spartans move ahead of the Thunderbirds by virtue of the first tie breaker, which is sets won divided by sets lost. UBC is 43-22, while TWU is 47-24. After doing the math TWU comes out on top by .0038.

The Spartans, who battled back from a 2-0 deficit tonight, will still have a tough road to get back to nationals but instead of playing a CIS top ten team TWU will match-up against the University of Saskatchewan (8-10) in next week’s Canada West quarter finals.

“The courage that the guys displayed tonight was unbelievable. Alberta came out of the gate flying and had the better of us, but we settled into a good rhythm the end of the second and were able to fight back and get the next two,” said TWU Head Coach Ron Pike. “I can’t say enough about Josh’s [Howatson] performance. What an athlete. And [Steve] Rogalsky was just stellar on the Rightside.”

The Bears stormed through the opening two sets 25-19 and 25-18.  Alberta seemed loose on the court, especially Joel Schmuland, Thomas Jarmoc and Proudfoot all of whom took turns chalking up the points in the early going.  Through two sets, Schmuland added to his Canada West leading totals by putting down nine kills, while Jarmoc chipped in with five kills and two aces and Proudfoot scored on 50% (3-6) of his kills and added an ace as well.

Ron Pike's Spartans put an authoritative stop to the good times in the third set as TWU thumped Alberta 25-17 thanks in large part to Steve Rogalsky's (Maple Ridge, B.C.) cannon of a serve and his five kills, giving him 13 through three sets.

The fourth set more closely resembled volleyball played by two teams who have met in the last two CIS finals, as neither squad would budge an inch on the court and the first to blink was out.  6'7" fifth year setter Josh Howatson (Victoria, B.C.) was a man on a mission in the fourth smashing a whopping 11 kills and two aces to power the Spartans into the fifth and final set.

With Trinity Western ahead by a point at the time-out, the Bears regained on a service error and thanks to some strong serving by Thomas Jarmoc proceeded to roll off three straight points to take the lead and run with it.  Between Proudfoot's blocking and Schmuland's power at the right-side position, Alberta was able to squeeze off a 15-10 win to take the set.

TWU setter Howatson, who is playing middle because of injuries, finished with 16 kills on 22 attempts for a 63% efficiency, while adding nine set assists, two aces and seven blocks. Rogalsky led the Spartans with 18 kills, while adding six digs and three blocks. The Spartans Chaim Schalk (Red Deer, Alta.) finished with 38 set assists. “Chaim settled in tonight,” said Pike. “He was nervous to start, but settled in by the end of the match.”

Alberta’s Schmuland led all players with 21 kills, while adding 11 digs, while Jamoc added 13 kills, eight digs and two aces to the Golden Bear cause.

TWU will open up the Canada West quarter finals on Thursday night with a best of three series against the Saskatchewan Huskies. The February 15-17 matches will all have a scheduled start time of 8 p.m. at TWU. The team that wins the series will move on to the Canada West Final Four.

The 17-1 Bears will now enjoy a first round "bye" before they host the Final Four February 23-25 in the Main Gym.  Alberta can also look forward to playing for CIS gold in McMaster because the top four teams from the Canada West all move on to the National tournament, March 1-4 at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
