TWU Spartans (0) vs the University of Alberta Golden Bears (2)

The Streak is Over...Long Live the Streak...

Langley, British Columbia - In a battle of top-five teams, the #5-ranked University of Alberta Golden Bears came out strong to start their match against the #2 ranked Trinity Western University men's soccer team. Alberta was rewarded for their efforts with a quick goal en route to a 2-0 win over the previously undefeated Spartans.

We didn't take care of the little things today," said TWU head coach Al Alderson. "Against a top five team you are not going to get away with those mistakes and Alberta took full advantage."

Alberta controlled the play early, and their second attempt on TWU's net in the eighth minute proved to be the game winner. The goal came when Alberta's Ben Drummond sailed a corner kick high into a crowd in front of TWU's net. Teammate Neil Morrow jumped high over the crowd and knocked the ball into the lower right corner of the Spartan net.

Then in the 35th minute, Alberta got some breathing room over the Spartans when Jordan Gillespie put the Golden Bears up 2-0. Gillespie got the marker when a through ball split the Spartan defenders and left him alone against TWU keeper Jacob Hanson. Hanson (3rd yr, Powell River, BC) came charging out, but after the collision the rebounding ball rolled into the back of the Spartan net.

The Spartans almost got a goal back in the 37th minute when a giveaway by Alberta keeper Devon Fraser resulted in a great opportunity for TWU's Jason Flint (1st yr, forward, Abbotsford, BC). But Fraser reacted quickly and was able to smother the ball in his crease just before Flint could put the ball in the open net.

Down 2-0 at the half, TWU took the play to Alberta, and were able to outshoot the Golden Bears six to one in the final forty-five minutes. But despite their efforts TWU was unable to get a ball behind Alberta's Fraser.

The loss drops the Spartans to 3-1-0 in Canada West and 10-1-1 overall. The win gives the Golden Bears a 4-0-0 record in Canada West.

The Spartans will now hit the road to take on the University of Saskatchewan on Friday, September 26. They will then travel to Alberta for a rematch with the Golden Bears on Sunday, September 28.

Match Notes: TWU had nine corner kicks to Alberta's one... Alberta outshot TWU 5-1 in the first half...Alberta had 16 fouls to TWU's 14...
