TRINITY WESTERN SPARTANS (3) THOMPSON RIVERS WOLFPACK (0)
(25-21, 27-25, 25-23)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS KNOCK OFF WOLFPACK IN STRAIGHT SETS


LANGLEY, British Columbia –
The Trinity Western Spartans were sharp early and late and then just got the job done via a frantic rally the middle as they ended Thompson Rivers night in short order 3-0 (25-21, 27-25, 25-23) in Game 1 of the opening round of the Canada West playoffs Thursday at the Langley Events Centre.

After the Spartans handily won the first set, it took a rally from being down 24-21, to win the second set before TWU closed the match with a near wire-to-wire win in the third set, albeit one in which they allowed TRU to sniff around late.

With Marc Howatson having his most productive offensive night of his injury-shortened season and Josh Doornenbal providing an emotionally charged nine kills and five blocks, the Spartans earned the a critical victory and now lead 1-0 in the Canada West opening round best-of-three playoff series.

“I’m not all that pleased with the way we played. I’m pleased with the result and some of the sequences of plays,” said TWU coach Ben Josephson. “I was really excited we were able to come back at the end of the second set but I was really disappointed with the way we got down. I didn’t think that we forced them to make great shots. I thought we kind of let them off the hook and then their one middle player was dominant in the second set.

“In the third set we let them comeback and we didn’t stomp on them when we had the chance but I was happy with how we finished the third set.”

In the first set, the Spartans got the home crowd into it early, taking a 4-1 lead, and, despite having TRU hanging tight for most of the rest of the set, never relinquished their advantage the rest of the way.

The WolfPack evened the score at 8-8 and then again, after an Aleks Saddlemyer kill, at 11-11, but then the Spartans took control. Trinity Western went on a 3-0 run to give the home side a 14-11 lead and then continued to push it’s efficient attack, one that finished at 42.9 per cent in the first set. Thompson Rivers rallied to eventually get within one point at 20-19, but the Spartans snuffed that out with a game-ending 5-2 run.

The huge blocking of both Doornenbal and Lucas Van Berkel, they each had four blocks in the first set, was critical throughout and fittingly it was a Van Berkel block that shut down a Saddlemyer attack to win the set.

While the first set was TWU’s from start to finish, the second set was something quite different.

Like the first set, the Spartans got off to a quick start, staking themselves to a 7-4 lead after Doornenbal’s fourth kill of the night.

But then the game took a turn in favour of the visiting team.

The WolfPack went on a 7-1 run, one that included four consecutive Michael Hammond aided blocks, to take a three-point lead at 11-8.

Thompson Rivers maintained that lead up until the Spartans tied it 16-16. But even then, TRU looked the superior team in the match as they went on a 3-0 run to restore its advantage.

And then with the score 24-21, TRU was one point from tying the match 1-1. But back came TWU.

The Spartans went on what would become a 6-1 run – one in which TWU faced three set-points – to win the match 27-25 with a Dan Jansen Van Doorn block providing the winning point.

In the third set, TWU got back to play that was more akin to their first set and were the aggressors for the majority of the frame.

After TRU’s Kevin Tillie got the set’s first point, Trinity Western got the next two points and never trailed the rest of the way. Marc Howatson had seven kills in the set to lead a TWU team that allowed the WolfPack to tie it 19-19 but didn’t ever surrender the lead.

And once it was tied 19-19, three straight kills from Howatson retrieved TWU’s lead and sent them towards the 25-23 finish line.

Howatson had a team-high 12 kills and nine digs while Doornenbal had nine kills and five blocks. Van Berkel had a game-high six blocks.

Thompson Rivers’ Tillie had 18 kills to lead his team while Hammond had 11 kills. Colin Carson led the team with eight digs.

Both teams will be back on the court Friday night for Game 2 of the Canada West best-of-three series. Game time is 8:00 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.

Match Notes: The Spartans out-blocked the WolfPack 14.5 to 6…TWU hit 23.9 per cent compared to TRU’s 15.1 per cent…TRU had 34 digs to TWU’s 26.
