Game Recap

Game Recap

Women’s Volleyball (Conference)
Friday, October 29, 04
TWU Spartans (3) vs. the Simon Fraser University Clan (2)
(25-23, 25-20, 17-25, 16-25, 15-13)

Spartans Hold off Clan

Burnaby, British Columbia –
The CIS ninth-ranked Trinity Western University women's volleyball team was given a scare Friday night by the Simon Fraser University Clan, but held off a two set rally by SFU to take the five set victory 3-2 (25-23, 25-20, 17-25, 16-25, 15-13).

The win puts the Spartans at 1-0 in Canada West conference play, while the loss drops the Clan to 0-3.

“It was great to get the win, although we didn’t play as consistent as we would have liked,” said TWU Head Coach Carol Hofer. “We struggled with our ability to kill the ball in the third and fourth set and it hurt us.”

The Spartans came in playing solid and quickly put the Clan on the ropes taking the first two sets, and looking to make it a short night with a three set victory. But the Clan were not willing to comply with the Spartans’ wishes.

The third set was close as the second technical timeout was called with the Clan up 16-14. The turning point came shortly after when frustration set in for the Spartans upon receiving a caution from the officials. SFU rallied for an 11-3 run, including two points off Tanis Payne (Fort Langley) blocks, to end the set and keep the match going.

In set four SFU took it to the Spartans early, taking an 8-4 lead into the first technical timeout. The Clan kept momentum on their side and rallied to a demanding 24-14 lead. After giving up two points to TWU the Clan put the set away on a kill by Lindsay Bailey (North Vancouver).

This meant the match would be determined in an ever-exciting fifth set.  TWU took the early advantage going up by three points at 5-2. After trading points, the Clan went on a 5-0 run and led 8-6 as the teams switched sides. The Spartans came back to tie the set only to see the Clan pull away again. TWU would not be upset on this night however, coming back again and taking the lead 11-10. They kept the advantage for good and put the Clan away 15-13.

TWU had three members with over 10 kills, including Saralyn Raugust (2nd yr, leftside, Delia, AB) with 18, Danielle Foth (1st yr, LS/RS, Abbotsford, BC) with 15, and Julie Koepke (1st yr, middle, Vancover, BC) with 11. Raugust also pitched in with 13 digs to complement the 21 made by Julie Blackburn (2nd yr, libero, Surrey, BC).

Heather Androsoff (Burnaby) and Lindsay Bailey (North Vancouver) lead SFU with 18 and 15 kills respectively. Four Clan members were in the double digits with digs, with Andrea Frustaci (Surrey) atop them all with 18. Androsoff also added four blocks, while Melissa Holt (Vernon) had two solo and four assisting blocks. As a team the Clan had 14 blocks.

The excitement will resume Saturday night at 7:00 PM in the West Gym as SFU hosts TWU again.

Match notes: SFU had the better kill percentage with 24.7% to TWU’s 20.7%...SFU had 14 team blocks while TWU had three…the Spartans had five aces, while the Clan had seven…
