Men's Volleyball (Canada West)
Saturday, November 15, 2008
TWU Spartans (3) vs. the University of Winnipeg Wesmen (1)
(25-19, 25-27, 25-23, 25-23)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Spartans Complete Sweep of Wesmen

LANGLEY, British Columbia - The No. 9 Trinity Western men's volleyball team completed a surprising sweep of the No. 5 University of Winnipeg Saturday night at TWU. The 3-1 (25-19, 25-27, 25-23, 25-23) win sends the Spartans to 5-1 on the season while dropping the Wesmen to 4-2.

"Against good Canada West teams you have to beat them after 20 and we were able to do that in two of the last three sets," commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "In the second set we had the opportunity, but we just let it slip away. In the third we made two big plays at the end and in the fourth we were able to make the plays at the end."

The Spartans came out strong and won the first set 25 - 19. Early in the set both teams were trading points and the set remained tight. With score tied at 11 the Spartans got a huge block from second year middle Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary). The block energized the Spartans to an 8-2 run. After that Trinity Western easily closed out the set.

In the second set, the Wesmen raised their game to another level. Both teams traded points and Trinity Western led 8-7 going into the first technical timeout. Then, with Andrew Town (Winnipeg) serving, the Wesmen ripped off an 8-2 run of their own to take a commanding 15-10 lead. Trailing by five the Spartans mounted a comeback with a 9-3 run of their own. After that the Wesmen rallied and both teams traded point. Tied at 24, Verhoeff made a service error that seemed to take the life out of the Spartans. The Wesmen seized the momentum and won the set 27-25. "Sometimes when you work that hard to get back into a set you just don't have enough left to get over the top as you have spent everything that you have just to get even," said Josephson.

The third set seemed to be a carbon copy of the second set early on with both teams trading points into the first technical timeout. Then, just like in the second set, the Wesmen blew the set open and took what seemed to be a commanding five-point lead. With Winnipeg leading 16-11 TWU rallied by getting back to their strong play at the net that they had in the first set. Two consecutive blocks by setter Chaim Schalk (5th, Red Deer, Alta.) sparked a 6-2 Spartan run that helped erase the Wesmen lead. Unlike the second set the Spartans finished off the Wesmen to take 2-1 lead.

The fourth set was a hotly contested back and fourth affair. The teams literally traded point for point until with the Spartans up 22-21; Town had two consecutive attack errors that gave the Spartans the lead for good. TWU crushed any hopes for a Winnipeg comeback when Verhoeff smashed a beautiful set up by Schalk to emphatically end the match with a 25-23 set victory.

Marc Howatson (Victoria) continued his strong play by leading all players with 18 kills with one error on 29 attempts. Five of his kills were in the decisive fourth set as seemed to get stronger as the game went along. The Spartans also had another fine outing from setter Chaim Schalk. Schalk made quality choices all night long on his way to recording a game high 48 assists. "You're not going to see a better stat line on an outside hitter then what Marc had this weekend and Chaim was spectacular tonight," said Josephson. "There defence was the as good as I've seen someone defend us. But our guys showed a tremendous amount of poise to stay focused and move on to the next play even when Winnipeg made a big play."

Town with 15 kills, five digs, three blocks and three aces and Justin Duff with 12 kills, six digs and two blocks led the Wesmen.

The Spartans have next week off while the Wesmen host Thompson Rivers University.

Match Notes: Trinity Western had seven blocks as opposed to five for Winnipeg... The Spartans also had an attack percentage of .336 compared to .269 for the Wesmen...
