Men’s Volleyball (Canada West Final Four)
Thursday, February 22, 2007
TWU Spartans (3) vs. the University of Winnipeg Wesmen (2)
(20-25, 25-22, 25-22, 23-25, 15-8)

SPARTANS TO PLAY T-BIRDS FOR CANADA WEST TITLE

EDMONTON
- For the first time since 1983, when Victoria and UBC matched up, the Canada West men’s volleyball title will be decided by two teams from British Columbia as the #3 ranked Trinity Western Spartans outlasted the #2 Winnipeg Wesmen in five sets (20-25, 25-22, 25-22, 23-25, 15-8) during game two of the Canada West Final Four in the U of A’s Main Gym Thursday night.

The Spartans, who have won bronze, silver and gold at the last three National championships, are making their third straight appearance in the Conference final having lost to Alberta in the two previous seasons.

This time the Spartans will meet the UBC Thunderbirds, who earlier upset the #1 ranked Golden Bears in five sets, in an all-B.C. affair for the Conference banner.

“The guys played better as the match went on, but we are still trying to figure ourselves out with this line-up and the better we can figure things out the better we can be,” commented TWU Head Coach Ron Pike on his still relatively knew line-up.

Winnipeg opened the night strong, scoring on 26% of their attacks, putting down 14 kills and picking up seven blocks.  Martin Rochon and Ryan Debruyn were the top Wesmen in the early going, hitting at 100% attack rates while notching five and three kills respectively.  Debruyn also picked up three block assists to lead the way defensively.

Led by Canada West Men’s volleyball MVP and First Team All-Star Josh Howatson, the Spartans responded big time to their opening set loss in which they recorded a zero percent attack rating by committing seven errors and seven kills.  The Spartans reeled off identical 25-22 set wins in the second and third sets where Howatson and fellow First Team All-Star Steve Rogalsky combined for 12 kills and three service aces.  Jeff Stel and Josh Doornenbal also joined in, collecting seven and four kills through three sets respectively.

“We had to really claw back from behind and it was a hard fought match,” said TWU Head Coach Ron Pike. “It wasn’t one of our best performances. We had moments of good play and moments when we weren’t very good. But we will take it.”

Rochon saw his totals dip after three sets, but was still the game leader in kills with 11.

Canada West Second Team All-Star Ben Schellenberg dramatically increased his game as the night moved on, improving upon his two kills in the first set to sit tied with Rochon at 11 kills after three sets.  

In the fourth the 6’6” Opposite hitter and native of Winnipeg scored five more to pace the Wesmen to an important fourth set 25-23 win.  After four sets Schellenberg was clipping along at a 43% hitting percentage, while Debruyn sat at 71% with five kills on seven attempts.  Alan Ahow banked eight kills and two aces through four sets to help lead the Wesmen come-back.

Larry McKay’s team fell short in the final set as Stel set to work by scoring six kills to almost single-handily win the fifth set 15-8.  Howatson and Rogalsky sat at 12 and 10 kills heading into the final frame and finished with 12 and 11 respectively.  Stel smacked a team high 16, while Doornenbal banked two in the fifth for a total of eight.  Howatson’s three aces and the Spartans seven aces total were a big difference as the Wesmen could only muster three.

Trinity Western will meet UBC Saturday (8:30 p.m. MST) for the Canada West gold, while Winnipeg will face Alberta for bronze (6:30 p.m. MST) on Saturday as well. The Canada West gold, silver and bronze medal winners will more then likely be ranked one through three at next weeks national championship in Hamilton. The tournament begins Friday, March 2 at McMaster University.
