Game Recap

Men's Volleyball (Canada West)
Thursday, November 27, 2008
TWU Spartans (1) at the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (3)
(21-25, 25-19, 26-24, 25-19)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS DROP FOUR SETTER TO THUNDERBIRDS

VANCOUVER - The No. 6 Trinity Western University men's volleyball team saw an early lead evaporate as the Spartans fell in a tight four set match (21-25, 25-19, 26-24, 25-19) to the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds Thursday night at UBC's War Memorial Gym. The loss drops the Spartans to 5-2 on the season, while the win moves the Thunderbirds to 4-3.

"We did enough to stay in the game and to put some pressure on them, but they did a great job of raising their level of play. We did not match the level of play that they were bringing and when you are on the road against a tough team you need to find a way to raise your level and at least match your opponent," commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "So we need to regroup and work to get our spilt on the road against a top ten team."

The first set saw the teams go neck and neck through the first 20 points with UBC gaining the biggest lead at 17-14 but the Spartans responded with inspired play to close out the set 25-21.

In the second frame, Trinity Western earned the first big lead at 14-10 only to see the T-Birds go 10-2 run thanks in large part to Steve Gotch who had three aces and two kills during that run as the T-Birds took the set 25-19. "We never could recover from Gotch's run. It was a big turnaround," commented Josephson.

The third set saw the two squads go punch for punch down the stretch, TWU had a slight advantage in kills at 16-15 for the set, but the T-Birds pulled out the 26-24 win on back-to-back kills by Tanner Kozak and Jared Krause.

In the fourth UBC took control early to lead 8-5 at the first break. The Spartans responded and caught the Thunderbirds and were tied at 12-12. But that was as close as TWU would get as the Thunderbirds took over the set by going on a 7-1 run to lead 19-13 before finishing of the set 25-19.

For UBC Steve Gotch led the offensive effort with 15 kills and four service aces, while right side Aaron Surkan also reached double digits with 11 kills. Fifth year setter Jared Krause had an impressive stat line with 43 set assists, eight kills, 16 digs, and three aces, while hitting .385.

The Spartans had 55 kills on the night, one more than UBC, but they also had 21 errors, including eight in the fourth set. Marc Howatson (Victoria) led TWU with 15 kills and Josh Doornenbal (Edmonton) chipped in with 13 kills.

The two teams will square off again on Saturday night. Game time is 8 p.m.

Match Notes: Howatson had a total of 40 attack attempts, which is the third highest by a Spartan in a four set match - Steve Rogalsky: 53 vs. TRU, Nov. 9, 07 and 49 vs. Calgary, Jan. 26, 07... The team had a total of 132 attempts which is the second highest by a Spartan team in a four set match, bettered only by 133 against Pepperdine on Oct. 13, 2007...
