TWU Spartans (3) vs. the University of Manitoba Bisons (1)
(25-23, 25-23, 20-25, 25-20)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS OPEN 2009 WITH SOLID EFFORT

LANGLEY, British Columbia - The No. 10 Trinity Western University men's volleyball team improved to 6-3 with a solid 3-1 (25-23, 25-23, 20-25, 25-20) victory over the unranked University of Manitoba Bisons Friday night at TWU's Langley, B.C. campus. The loss drops the Bisons to 3-8.

"I was really pleased with our ability to side out when we passed the ball well. However, overall we did not pass the ball particularly well. Their tough serves we handled well, but their easier serves we did not handle as well as we could have," commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "Our middle's were unstoppable for most of the night, but our passing did not allow us to get them the ball as much as we would have liked too. When they get the ball it opens up all of our other attackers."

Chaim Schalk (Red Deer, Alta.) led the way for the third place Spartans tonight. The fifth year setter was solid in every statistical category. He finished the night with 40 set assists, eight kills at 46 percent, five digs and five blocks. "Chaim is a great all around player. There is a reason that he is on the Canadian Beach Team," commented Josephson. "He as great skills and is a physical player. He had a couple of timely blocks, defended the ball well and his attacking came around as the game wore on."

The two teams were unstoppable to start the match. Manitoba hit for a solid 45 percent for 13 kills, while TWU bettered the mark with 51 percent on 19 kills. As the numbers indicated the set was close from beginning to end. TWU led 8-7 and 16-15 at the breaks and the two teams were tied at 23-23. Then a Manitoba service error combined with a thundering kill by TWU rightside Aaron Vandenbrink (Langley, B.C.) gave the Spartans the first set 25-23. Middle Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary) and Vandenbrink led the Spartans with five kills each, while Dane Pischke (Winnipeg) led the Bisons with four.

Both teams cooled offensively in the second set, but TWU still had the upper hand. The Spartans jumped out to 8-5 and 16-13 leads at the breaks. Then Manitoba got things going as they took three straight points to take a 22-21 lead after back-to-back TWU attack errors. The Spartans settled down after a timeout and a kill by Chaim Schalk and a service ace by leftside Mikiah Schalk (Red Deer, Alta.) gave TWU the lead, 23-22. Chris Voth (Winnipeg) got Manitoba a side out, but then TWU middle Josh Doornenbal (Edmonton) and Vandenbrink put together two straight to give the Spartans the second set 25-23.

"Aaron was awesome tonight. They didn't have an answer for him," said Josephson. "They made adjustments to stop him, but he countered their adjustments and was able to get the winning kills in the first two tight sets."

Manitoba's serving started to give TWU challenges in the third set. Pischke's serving led the Bisons to an 8-3 lead to start the set. The Spartans made some adjustments and were able to crawl back into the set and trailed by one point at 17-16. But TWU was unable to turn the corner. The Bisons extended their lead and then Drew Venables (Kamloops, B.C.) served three straight to give Manitoba the third set 25-20.

The two teams matched each other once again through the fourth set as TWU had the slight lead, 8-6 and 16-15 at the breaks. Then the Spartans Doornenbal shut the door on the Bisons. TWU outscored Manitoba nine to five to close out the match with a 25-20 win. Doornenbal had three kills, an ace and a block down the stretch to give TWU the 3-1 victory.

Also contributing for the Spartans were leftside Marc Howatson (Victoria, B.C.) with 13 kills and seven digs and Vandenbrink with 12 kills and three blocks, while Dane Pischke with 12 kills and seven digs and John Galloway (Victoria) and Venables with 11 kills each led the Bisons.

The two teams will battle again tomorrow afternoon. Match time at TWU is scheduled for 3 p.m.

Game Notes: TWU finished at 29 percent (55 kills), while Manitoba finished at 23 percent (51 kills)...both teams had 10 team blocks...the Spartans finished with 33 digs to the Bisons 24...
