Spartans Victorious Over Vikes!

Langley, British Columbia - TWU's men's soccer team kept their unbeaten streak intact this afternoon, defeating the visiting UVIC Vikes 2-1. The Spartans are now 2-0 in league play and 9-0-1 overall.

The Trinity Western men knew they had their work cut out for them opening their season against two of the toughest teams in Canada West-UBC and UVIC. After defeating the T-Birds 1-0 on Thursday, the Spartans came out today fired up and ready to play hard.

Their aggressiveness paid off as they shocked the Vikes with a goal in the second minute of the game. Brian Scrivens (4th yr, Forward, Langley, BC) drove a perfect free kick into the box from the lower right side, and Mike Barney (3rd yr, Defender, Maple Ridge, BC) timed his leap to nail the header past the UVIC keeper.

The Spartans didn't let up for most of the first half, controlling the ball beautifully, and forcing the Vikes to play chase. A hand ball in the box by a Spartan defender in the 19th minute was the only thing that put a damper on the first 45 minutes. UVIC's William Moore (2nd yr, Midfielder, Victoria, BC) converted the resulting penalty kick. TWU outshot the Vikes 7-3 in the first half but the teams remained deadlocked at 1-1 at the break.

Play was a little sloppier in the second half, with both teams looking to score the go-ahead goal. It wasn't until the 55th minute that TWU's Mark Peters (3rd yr, Forward, Chilliwack, BC) was able to find the back of the net. Trevor Rosencrans (5th yr, Midfielder, Delta, BC) crossed a low ball into the Vikes' box, and Peters, all alone in front of the net, one-timed his shot high into the top of the net.

With time winding down, the Vikes pressed to get the equalizer as the Spartans restlessly awaited the game-ending whistle. A mistake in the Spartan back line in extra time resulted in a UVIC free kick just outside the bottom right side of the box. The next few seconds were some of the most anxious of the entire game. A wall of Spartans, interspersed with a few Vikes, lined up in the box according to the loud commands of keeper Jacob Hanson (3rd yr, Powell River, BC), and a few more placed themselves along the goal line and shadowing Vike forwards. In the end it was Captain Paul Ballard (3rd yr, Defender, Port Coquitlam, BC) who saved the day, booting UVIC's Mark Cristante's shot off the line and away from danger.

Coach Alderson was understandably happy with the win, but also knows his team can play even better. "We played really well for the first 15 minutes, but we know that today's performance was not to our full potential. It's exciting to come out with a win when you know you can play even better. We're also looking forward to some rest before next Thursday, so we can rest the players who played banged up today."

The Spartans play at home again on Thursday, September 18 at 7:15pm against the University of Saskatchewan.

Match Notes: With today's victory, the Spartans are close to "running the table" on teams that finished last season ranked in the top ten: 2-1 over #1 UVIC, 2-0 over #2 McGill, 6-2 over #5 Carleton, 1-1 with #7 Montreal, 1-0 over #8 UBC...check Tuesday for the first soccer rankings of the 2003-04 season and see where the Spartans place...
