FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2010
TWU SPARTANS (3) AT UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS (0)
(25-20, 25-23, 25-23)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BATTLE OF TITLE CONTENDERS GOES TO THE SPARTANS

EDMONTON
– Led by Rudy Verhoeff with 15 kills the No. 4  Trinity Western University men’s volleyball team went into the Bears cave and swept the No. 1 University of Alberta Golden Bears 3-0 (25-20, 25-23, 25-23) Friday night in Edmonton. The win moves the Spartans to 6-1 while the loss is the first of the season for the Golden Bears who now sit at 4-1.

“We focused all week long on playing better system volleyball and I’m happy that the work we put in paid off in our performance and allowed us to get the result we wanted,” commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. “But good teams are hard to beat twice in a row, so we know that we have a mountain to climb and we have to be ready tomorrow night.”

In addition to Verhoeff the Spartans had strong performances from Mikiah Schalk with 13 kills and four digs and setter Ben Ball who finished with 36 assists.

Leading the way for the Golden Bears were Jay Olmstead with 14 kills and Kyle Baird with 12 kills and four digs. UofA setter Tanner Nault finished with 38 set assists.

The first set of the match was a battle of two teams throwing bombs trying to get control. TWU came out strong with and took the early 5-2 lead. Alberta took the early timeout and countered with a seven to one run to take a 9-6 lead. The Spartans regained control with an impressive 11-4 run to take a commanding 20-15 lead and force the Bears into a timeout. The teams exchanged points before TWU middle Lucas Van Berkel ended the set with back-to-back kills to give the Spartans the first set 25-20.

TWU started the second set strong and led 8-5 at the first break after a kill by Rudy Verhoeff. The Golden Bears closed the gap and tied the set at 10-10 after a kill by Simon Lidster. From there on it was a tight set. TWU’s Mikiah Schalk gave the Spartans the 16-15 at the second break. The Spartans took five of the next eight points to take a 21-18 lead and force the Bears into a timeout. After the two teams exchanged points, back-to-back errors by the Spartans allowed the Golden Bears to pull within one point, trailing 22-21. Josh Doornenbal put the Spartans up 23-21. The Bears countered with Jay Olmstead to make it 23-22 for TWU. Then the Spartans Verhoeff closed out the set with back-to-back kills to give TWU a 2-0 set lead after a 25-23 win.

Once again TWU opened the set strong taking the early 6-4 lead. But Alberta took over the early part of the set with a six to two run to lead 10-6. Then, like the first set, the two teams went on big runs to try and take control of the set. A kill by TWU’s Mikiah Schalk brought the Spartans within one point, 11-10.Then Alberta’s Jay Olmstead and Justin Merta helped the Golden Bears regain control with a five point lead 16-11 going into the second break. It looked like the match was headed to a fourth set with Alberta leading 18-13. But the Spartans got it going again and after back-to-back kills by Verhoeff TWU had regained the momentum of the match and tied the set at 18-18. The two squads played sideout ball to 23-23. Then a kill by Mikiah Schalk gave the Spartans match point at 24-23, before Verhoeff closed out the night with a down the line kill off of Alberta’s hands to give the visitors the set 25-23 and the match 3-0.

The two teams will match up again tomorrow night in Edmonton. Game time at the University of Alberta is set for 8 p.m.

Match Notes: TWU had the edge in blocks eight to six and overall points 75 to 66…TWU finished the match hitting at 34.1 percent, while Alberta finished at 20.6 percent…the Spartans were forced to juggle their lineup early in the first set, when middle Dan Jansen Van Doorn injured his hand and had to leave the match. “Dan may be available for tomorrow, but we don’t know right now,” said Josephson. “But it was really nice to see and I’m proud of the guys as they shuffled their positions and still were able to play at a high level.”
