Game Recap

Men's Volleyball (Canada West)
Saturday, November 29, 2008
TWU Spartans (1) at the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (3)
(21-25, 25-19, 27-25, 31-29)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS FALL IN FOUR SET MARATHON TO THUNDERBIRDS

VANCOUVER - Despite being down as many as seven points in the fourth set, the No. 10 UBC Thunderbirds were able to pull off an improbable rally to take the game 31-29 and the match 3-1 (21-25, 25-19, 27-25, 31-29) on Saturday night, completing the sweep over the No. 6 Trinity Western University Spartans at War Memorial Gym.

After building a slim 13-11 advantage in the fourth set, the T-Birds watched the Spartans turn the tables in a big way, starting with a 9-0 run and eventually taking a 23-16 lead, seeming poised to force a fifth set. The ‘Birds refused to let that happen however, as they went on a 7-0 run of their own. The two sides would trade points for a while, neither being able to pull away, until a big kill by Krause seemed to swing the momentum in UBC's favour as he evened the score at 29. The ensuing point ended on a Trinity Western error after another long rally, and on match point, the Spartans finally broke, committing a second straight error to give UBC the set and match win.

After losing the first set 25-21, the T-Birds got hot in the second, hitting .464 as a team and evening the match at one with a 25-19 victory. The third set was much more closely contested, with neither team having a lead bigger than two points from start to finish. With the score 23-22 in favour of the Spartans, the teams traded point-for-point until UBC had evened things up at 25. The Thunderbirds took the next two points, setting the table for UBC's dramatic four-set win.

Gotch had another monster game for UBC, finishing with 27 kills and a .367 hitting percentage. Howatson was impressive as well for Trinity Western, picking up 17 kills on .306 hitting to go along with five blocks and a pair of aces.

Both sides are now 5-3 on the year and are in the middle of the table in the Canada West standings, but with a pair of games in-hand over most teams in the conference.

The T-Birds resume conference play on January 10 in Calgary against the Dinos, while the Spartans will be under way on January 9 at home against the Manitoba Bisons.
