DEPLETED SPARTANS LINEUP UPSET BY REGINA

LANGLEY, British Columbia – Playing without four starters, the No. 2 Trinity Western women’s volleyball team was upset on home court by the Regina Cougars 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-22) Friday at the Langley Events Centre.


The Cougars (3-6) set the tone early in the first set and largely controlled the match as they earned their first win over TWU (5-4) in three years. The last time the Spartans lost to Regina was Feb. 27, 2010 in the Canada West bronze medal match.

The Spartans also haven’t lost in three sets at home against a team not-named UBC since Jan. 15, 2010, when they fell to Regina. Trinity Western is now 1-3 on home court this year.

The Cougars were led by Desiree Ates, who had a match-high 13 kills as well as three blocks. Michelle Sweeting added eight kills and five blocks.

Trinity Western’s Chelsea Tancon (Comox, B.C.) and Royal Richardson (Rocky Mountain House, Alta.) each had 10 kills to lead the Spartans.

“I was disappointed with how we played tonight,” said Spartans coach Ryan Hofer, whose team played without the likes of Alicia Perrin (Creston, B.C.), Sophie Carpentier (Ottawa), Katelyn Devaney (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) and Carly Hamilton (Calgary). “Even though we were missing some players, I thought those who were out there could have raised their level of play and put a lot more pressure on Regina.

“We needed to serve in the court. I don’t think we put pressure on them from the baseline. At pressure times, we gave them some easier points and we were unable to execute at the high level I had hoped for.”

The Cougars took control early in the first set and, with a 12-10 lead, put the set out of reach with a 10-2 run, capped by an Ates block. From there, Regina cruised to a nine-point win, never allowing the Spartans to get closer than eight points.

With momentum on the visitor’s side, Regina raced out to a 10-6 lead in the second set. However, the Spartans responded with three straight points and after a kill from Lindsay Dykman (Terrace, B.C.) made it a 10-9 game. The Cougars came right back and tallied six of the next eight points to reach the technical timeout up 16-11. From there, the teams traded points the rest of the way and, with a block, Regina earned a five-point win.

In the third set, TWU built a 10-7 lead after a Casie Gano (Sundre, Alta.) kill and then went on to build a four-point lead, at 19-15. But the Cougars responded and, with 7-2 run, Regina went ahead 22-21. From there, Regina kept its momentum rolling, collecting three of the match’s final four points en route to a three-point win.

The two teams will meet in the rematch Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.

Game Notes: The Spartans Dykman was playing in her first match since 2011-12…TWU hit .148 as a team while Regina hit .221.
