TWU Spartans (3) at the University of Saskatchewan Huskies (0)
(29-27, 25-18, 25-23)

FOR IMMEDITATE RELEASE

SPARTANS IN THREE

SASKATOON - The No. 8 ranked Trinity Western University Spartans defeated the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in straight sets (29-27, 25-18, 25-23) Friday night at the PAC in Saskatoon. After a close first set the Spartans got the job done in a must win situation for TWU to keep their hopes alive of hosting the first round of the Canada West play-offs in the friendly confines of the David E. Enarson Gym in Langley, B.C.

With the win Trinity Western moves to 10-7. Entering the weekend the Spartans were in a three-way tie for fourth place with the UBC Thunderbirds and the Brandon Bobcats. The fourth place team hosts the fifth place team in the first round of the playoffs.

"This was a huge win for us as we got the first one out of the way," Spartans head coach Ben Josephson said of his team's need for a weekend sweep. "Toward the end we didn't match their defensive play and it shows that you need a full team effort to win two on the road."

The first set was tight as the Huskies and the Spartans went nearly point for point from 16 on. But with the score tied at 27, Trinity Western's Paul Lindemulder (Calgary) served an ace just inside the back line to give them the lead. On the following possession his teammate Marc Howatson (Victoria) made a powerful kill to take the first set 29-27.

The second set was dominated by the Spartans as they jumped to 8-5 and 16-9 leads before taking a 24-15 lead late in the set. The Huskies rallied to score three consecutive points but Trinity Western closed the set out with a strong kill by Lindemulder.

The Huskies battled momentum early in the third set as they went down 5-0. Managing to fight their way back, Huskies' left side hitter Jarret Christenson had a kill followed by a block to tie the game up at eight. Again, battling back and forth, the Huskies found themselves ahead 21-20. Then, after leaping into his own bench, Christenson made a spectacular save to keep the ball in play only to have it killed by Lindemulder for the tying point.

With the game on the line, Huskies' Brett Wegner made a powerful spike but it landed out of bounds and the Spartans took the third and final set 25-23.

Leading the Spartans was Howatson with 14 kills and 6 digs, while Christenson led the Huskies with 11 kills and 11 digs. TWU's Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary) hit at 68 percent (11-0-16) and had his third error free match of his last four matches.

The Huskies and Spartans match up again Saturday night at the PAC at 8 p.m.
