Game Recap

Men's Volleyball (Canada West)
Saturday, January 31, 2009
TWU Spartans (0) at the Brandon University Bobcats (3)
(25-21, 27-25, 25-21)

DESTINY STILL IN OWN HANDS

BRANDON, Manitoba - The No. 8 Trinity Western University men's volleyball team fell in straight sets 25-21, 27-25, and 25-21 to the No. 7 Brandon University Bobcats Saturday night in Brandon, Man. But despite the loss the Spartans got the split that they needed in Brandon.

As a result of the split and Calgary's wins over Thompson Rivers, the Spartans can still hold their playoff positioning in their own hands. A TWU sweep of Saskatchewan next week in Saskatoon will guarantee that the Spartans will host the first round of the Canada West playoffs regardless of what their competition does.

The Spartans came into tonight's match after a solid 3-0 win over the Bobcats Friday night, while the Bobcats were looking to rebound after the home loss. As a result the levels of intensity and focus were reversed from Friday night as is the case of most matches in Canada West it was enough to reverse the outcome from the previous night.

"Brandon came out hot and we were not engaged as much as we needed to be in a play-off atmosphere match. They were just a little too much for us tonight," commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "We need to get a little tougher, but a spilt on the road in a play-off environment is good and we will take it and move forward."

Brandon had the upper hand for much of the first set. The Bobcats led 8-6 and 16-10 at the breaks. TWU got three straight points to close to three points, 16-13, but were unable to get any closer as Brandon took the opening set 25-21.

The second set proved to be the pivotal set of the match. The Bobcats were once again in control with 8-6 and 16-8 leads at the breaks. But the Spartans did not roll over. They came storming back and after five straight serves by Marc Howatson (Victoria) had closed to within one point trailing 19-18. TWU tied the match at 21-21 after a Josh Doornenbal (Edmonton) service ace. The two teams sided out to 25-25. Then back-to-back kills by Brandon's Paul Sanderson and Kevin Miller gave the Bobcats the 27-25 win and the 2-0 set lead.

The two teams played side out ball for much of the third set and were tied to 21-21. Then, after a TWU serving error, the Bobcats Pat Thompson served out the match with three straight serves to give the Bobcats the match and the set 25-21.

Chaim Schalk (Red Deer, Alta.) with 11 kills, 16 set assists and six digs and Paul Lindemulder (Calgary) with eight kills, five digs and two blocks led the Spartans, while Sanderson with 14 kills and seven digs led the Bobcats.

Brandon's blocking proved to be the difference in the match. Led by Joel Small's 12 block's the Bobcats out blocked the Spartans 17.5 to seven.

With the win, the Bobcats (9-7) are once again tied with the Spartans and UBC Thunderbirds for fourth place in the conference, two points ahead of the Winnipeg Wesmen (8-8) and four back of the Thompson Rivers WolfPack (10-8).

Trinity Western will now head to Saskatoon for their final conference matches of the season against the Huskies on Fri. Feb. 6 and Sat. Feb. 7. Brandon wraps up the regular season next weekend with a pair of matches against the T-Birds.
