Game Recap

Men's Volleyball (Canada West)
Friday, January 30, 2009
TWU Spartans (3) at the Brandon University Bobcats (1)
(25-21, 22-25, 25-17, 28-26)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS STRONG IN ROAD WIN

BRANDON, Manitoba - The Trinity Western University Spartans have forced the Brandon University Bobcats out of the driver's seat in the battle for home court advantage in the opening round of the Canada West playoffs.

Aaron VandenBrink (Langley, B.C.) and Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary) had 13 kills apiece to lift the No. 8 Spartans to a four-set victory (25-21, 22-25, 25-17, 28-26) over the No. 7 ranked Bobcats in the opener of a weekend series Friday night at the BU Gym.

"Our middles, Rudy Verhoeff and Josh Doornenbal (Edmonton), were dominant tonight and because of their play our outside hitters were able to have lots of good looks," commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "We played one of our better matches of the year and did enough to win on the road in a play-off atmosphere."

With the win, the Spartans (9-6) move into sole possession of fourth place in the conference, one game ahead of the Bobcats, UBC Thunderbirds, and the University of Winnipeg Wesmen, with those three teams now deadlocked for fifth place at 8-7.

The Bobcats nearly pushed the match the distance, rallying from a 21-18 deficit in the fourth frame before a VandenBrink kill on set point evened the game at 25-25. Brandon fought off a subsequent match point, but moments later, Verhoeff hammered down a BU over pass to give the Spartans the win.

Marc Howatson (Victoria) added 10 kills for the Spartans, while All-Canadian Paul Sanderson led Brandon with 24 kills and five service aces. Joel Small notched 14 kills and three blocks in the losing cause. Between the two Spartan middles, Verhoeff and Doornenbal the Spartans finished with 22 kills and one error on 36 attempts.

Trinity Western has now won two of their last three matches and will look for a series sweep on Saturday night. Game time at the BU Gym is 8:00.
