Men's Volleyball (Canada West)
Friday, January 16, 2009
TWU Spartans (0) at the University of Alberta Golden Bears (3)
(25-20, 25-19, 25-22)

SPARTANS FALL TO TOP RANKED GOLDEN BEARS

EDMONTON - The No. 1 University of Alberta extended their winning streak to a perfect 13-0 with a straight sets victory over the visiting No. 10 Trinity Western University Spartans Friday night at the U of A's Main Gym in Edmonton. The Spartans drop to 7-4 with the 25-20, 25-19, 25-22 Golden Bear victory.

While they did pick up a win, it certainly wasn't easy, as Alberta earned every set along the way.

"We were in every set, but they were able to get lengthy runs in each set which allowed them to get the separation that they needed," said TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "When we were consistent we were really sharp, but for us to take them out we will need to play a perfect brand of Spartan volleyball."

In their first action back in the Main Gym since November 22, 2008, the Bears played hard against a team that has become somewhat of a rival over the last few years.

Through all three sets the teams stayed close to one another, right up until the 20 point barrier, when it seemed like the Bears simply had more in the tank and were always able to secure the victory.

In the first set the teams see-sawed the lead until Alberta took over at the second technical time-out, edging ahead 16-14. From there, the Bears were able to pound out a 25-20 victory, setting the stage for the rest of the night.

Led by the serving of Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary) the Spartans earned a quick a lead, 10-5, to start the second set, but saw their lead cut to 16-15 by the second break. From that point the Bears had too much as they outscored the Spartans 10-3 to take the second set 25-19.

The third set represented TWU's best chance to earn a victory as they stayed level with Alberta until 21-21, when setter Mike DeRocco scored a quick tip at the net, to put the Bears up 22-21 and en route to a 25-22 win.

Leftside Marc Howatson (Victoria) led the Spartans with 11 kills, while setter Chaim Schalk (Red Deer, Alta.) picked up four kills on nine attempts and 23 assists, while Schmuland once again led the Bears with 17 kills and one ace.

The two teams will meet again tomorrow night, this time at 8:15 pm MST.

Match Notes: the Spartans finished at 26 percent efficiency (34-12-82), while the Golden Bears finished at 39 percent (53-13-102)...TWU out-blocked Alberta seven to 5.5...
