TWU Spartans (1) vs the University of Calgary Dinos (1)
Oh To Finish!
Langley, British Columbia - The Trinity Western University men's soccer team deserved more Thursday night. They carried the play to the visiting University of Calgary Dinos for most of the match, but they were unable to take advantages of some glorious scoring opportunities and had to settle for a 1-1 draw.
The Dinos Jon Remple opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, when he found himself open to the left side of the Spartans net. Remple roofed the ball into the top of the TWU net to give the Dinos a 1-0 lead.
The Spartans answered the Dinos goal 10 minutes later. TWU's Trevor Rosencrans (4th yr, Midfield, Delta, BC) broke in on Farkas and was able to convert his rebound to tie the match at 1-1.
After the controlling the play for most of the second half, the Spartans had three opportunities to record the win in the final fifteen minutes of the match. In the 30th minute Paul Ballard (2nd yr, Defender, Port Coquitlam, BC) blasted a rocket towards the open net, but Calgary keeper Thomas Farkas got over to deflect the ball wide of the post. Then two minutes later Josh McCaig (1st yr, Forward, Mission, BC) had a ball bounce past him while he was standing all alone in front of the open net. A minute later Ballard missed again from just inside the box.
Next up for the Spartans is the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns on Saturday, September 21. Game time at TWU is set for 2:00 PM.
Game Notes: The Spartans had 13 shots on the Dinos and were able to gain 5 corner kicks. Comparatively the Dinos only managed 5 shots on TWU keeper Jacob Hanson (2nd yr, Powell River, BC) and were never able to garner a set piece from the end line.
