SPARTANS KNOCK OFF UBC OKANAGAN IN BLUE TEAM CUP

LANGLEY, B.C. – Trinity Western continued to roll in the preseason, picking up a 3-0 (28-26, 25-18, 25-17) win over UBC Okanagan in the Spartans second game of the Blue Team Cup.

After falling behind 8-4 in the first set, TWU coach Ben Josephson called a timeout that seemed to ignite the Spartans attack. From there, the Spartans rallied for the win, before running away with victories in the second and third sets.

TWU is now 12-0 in preseason.

QUOTABLE
Head Coach Ben Josephson
"We got down big in the first set and I had to call a timeout and get on the guys a little bit. I felt like we didn't prepare for this game the same way they prepared for last night's game. It's easy to have an emotional let down after a game like we had last night against UBC, but in Canada West every team can beat another team on a given night. That's what we talked about in the timeout. But I was really proud of the way the guys responded. After that, they never looked back.

"Kaden Gamache (Abbotsford, B.C.) was great and Maddux Greves (Calgary) was great and Mark Antoniuk (Langley, B.C.) was great, but it was a solid overall effort."

NEXT UP
The Spartans will wrap up their preseason schedule with a game against Mount Royal Saturday at 6 p.m. at the LEC in the final game of the Blue Team Cup.
