Game Recap

Women’s Volleyball (League)    
January 12, 2001
TWU Spartans (1) vs the University of Saskatchewan Huskies (3)
(25-12, 22-25, 25-14, 25-11)

Spartans push #3 to 4…

Langley, British Columbia –
The Trinity Western University Spartans were defeated 3-1 in Friday’s women’s volleyball match against The University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
The Huskies took control early on, gaining a 25-12 victory in the first set.

Down early in the second set, TWU coach Hofer substituted Andrea Lapointe (2nd year, Power, Victoria, BC) hoping to spark the Spartans into a comeback.  

“We were panicked and I think that once we got settled in and played with them, things started to turn around,” said Carol Hofer. “Our hitters are starting to find the court, and our setters are starting to put the ball where it needs to go.”

Trailing 11-6, Lapointe’s fresh intensity carried the Spartans into a 19-11 run and a 25-22 come from behind victory. (TWU) Kristen Groot’s (1st year, Power, Burnaby, BC) tough serves brought the set to a close and helped the Spartans carry momentum into the third set.

On the strength of Lauren Good’s (1st year, Setter, Surrey, BC) serving, the Spartans jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead to start the third set. However, the Huskies are not the number 3-ranked team in the country without reason and Saskatchewan was not going to let the match get away from them. They quickly responded to the challenge and made short work of the Spartans in the third set winning 25-14.

The Huskies made it almost impossible for the Spartans to get back in the match.  With a total of 75 digs, the University of Saskatchewan stepped up the pressure and finished the match with a 25-11 victory in the fourth set.

“I’ve seen comebacks in almost every match we’ve played where it would have been very easy to just roll over and play dead. We come back, even if it’s only 3 or 4 points. We fight hard for those last points and often we’ve just run out of time to get to 25,” said Hofer. “We don’t give up and that is going to put us in a good position for the future.”

Statistical Leaders
(Saskatchewan) Lindsay Bothner 13 kills, Amanda Hagel 10 kills, Elaine Lee 17 digs, Dawn Dreger 14 digs.  (TWU) Lies Verhoeff (2nd year, Middle, Calgary, BC) 7 kills,  Kristen Groot (1st year, Power, Burnaby, BC) 6 kills, 12 digs and Jolene Dryfhout (3rd year, Power, Surrey BC) 6 kills, 10 digs.

Next up for the Spartans is the University of Saskatchewan on January 13th in Langley, BC.  
Game time is set for 6:00pm at Trinity Western University.
