Spartans Unable to Find Net in OT Loss

Langley, British Columbia - The Trinity Western University men's soccer team lost a hard fought 1-0 OT match to the Willamette University Bearcats Monday afternoon in Salem, OR. Despite carrying the majority of the play the Spartans were unable to convert a number of quality scoring opportunities.

In the first half Sean Crocker (2nd yr, midfield/forward, Abbotsford, BC) missed a wide-open net in the 15th minute.

The second half saw two more quality scoring opportunities go by the wayside as Mario Caravetta (3rd yr, midfield/defender, Abbotsford, BC) missed off of the goal post and Jason Jorgensen (3rd yr, midfield, Bellingham, WA) missed just wide from the 6 yard box.

The Bearcats finally cracked the Spartan defense and beat Jacob Hanson (1st yr, keeper, Powel River, BC) in the 96th minute of the match. Willamette capitalized on a long throw from the corner kick area. The throw-in bounced off of one of the Spartan defenders to a Willamette forward, who put the rebound into the back of the Spartan net.

"We defending fantastically and were able to get quality scoring opportunities," said TWU head coach Al Alderson. "But we were unable to put them home. So it looks like we have a little bit of work to do on our finishing."

Next up for the Spartans is Wednesday, September 5 when they will host Langara College. Game time is set for 8 PM at the TWU Spartan Field Complex.
