FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS ADVANCE TO FINAL FOUR WITH STRAIGHT SETS WIN



LANGLEY, British Columbia –
The Trinity Western Spartans advanced to the Canada West Final Four with a two-game sweep of Thompson Rivers, wrapping up the series with a 3-0 (25-18, 25-21, 25-20) win Friday night at the Langley Events Centre.

With Rudy Verhoeff, 18 kills, and Josh Doornenbal, 15 kills, leading the Spartans attack, TWU not only earned a spot in the Final Four in Edmonton but also earned a little redemption over TRU, as it was the WolfPack who knocked TWU out of the playoffs two years ago in a three-match series played at the David E. Enarson Gymnasium.

Trinity Western was superior in nearly every facet of the game, held Kevin Tillie to eight kills all night and rode a hitting percentage of 40.4 per cent to a convincing win.

“I thought our offence was fantastic tonight,” said TWU coach Ben Josephson. “I thought our passing was really good. Ben [Ball] was a little sharper tonight. He got Rudy [Verhoeff] involved early, which opened up some other stuff. I thought Josh [Doornenbal] was great on the right side. Our two biggest high-end swingers were really clicking and I thought overall we clicked really well offensively.

“I think [slowing Tillie] had somewhat to do with our service and somewhat to do with the balls he had to swing on. He was off the net and leaning back. I think we did a good job on him. We made it hard for him to score. You never really stop one of those great players, you just hope he doesn’t beat you all by himself and we saw that in the full.”

The Spartans opened the first set with a bang, quickly taking a 10-4 lead with four of TWU’s points coming by way of Verhoeff kills. From there the WolfPack never got back in the game.

Trinity Western kept pushing – finishing the set with a 43.3 per cent hitting percentage – and kept digging, collecting 13 digs, as they held at least a five-point lead the all the way to a 25-18 win.

Verhoeff had seven kills while Doornenbal had five kills to lead TWU, while Kevin Tillie was the only WolfPack player to get more than one kill, with five, as TRU hit just 10.0 per cent as a team.

And the second set wasn’t much different.

The Spartans earned a 10-5 lead and rolled from there. Trinity Western’s Doornenbal and Verhoeff continued to dominate at the net as they each had five kills to lead the Spartans to a 25-21 second set win.

But despite Trinity Western building its lead up to a seemingly comfortable 18-11, the WolfPack was a resilient bunch, fighting back with a 5-0 run that presented the crowd once again with a tight match. Thompson Rivers managed to stay within striking up until 20-18, but then TWU regained its pace.

The Spartans got three points in a row to restore their five-point edge and then, at 23-20, TWU setter Ben Ball executed the cheekiest of dumps to send the Spartans to within one point of a win. A kill off the right side from Derek Thiessen completed the task.

In the third set, Thompson Rivers showed the typical resurgence expected from a team on the brink of elimination.

They got the first three points and then, after Tillie earned only his eighth kill of the night, TRU took an 8-6 lead into the technical break

Trinity Western though, inched their way back. And with a Doornenbal kill, TWU got their first lead of the set 12-11.

Thompson Rivers regained its lead at 15-14 but then TWU went on a 4-0 run to take control of the set and roll to a 25-20 win capped by a Doornenbal untouched service ace.
    
Doornenbal led TWU with 10 digs while Ben Ball had 39 assists and Dan Jansen Van Doorn and Verhoeff each had four blocks.

After Tillie’s eight kills, both Ryan Talsma and Alex Davis had six kills each while Colin Carson led TRU with eight digs. As seniors, Talsma  and Joel Caschetto played their last games with TRU.

The Spartans will go into the Canada West Final Four as the third seed Feb. 25-26 at Alberta and will play Calgary in the opening game. With TWU hosting the CIS National Championship, all four teams going to the Final Four will automatically qualify for nationals.

Match Notes: TWU more than doubled TRU in hitting percentage 40.4 per cent to 19.2 per cent…TWU had 7.0 blocks to TRU’s 4.5 blocks.
