Spartans Seal Playoff Spot

Langley, British Columbia - It may have been chilly on the sidelines in tonight's soccer match between the TWU men and the visiting University of Lethbridge, but the Spartans kept the heat up on the field with five goals as they shut out the Pronghorns 5-0.

Tonight's win tightened the Spartans' (8-2-1) grip on first place in Canada West and confirmed their appearance in the postseason beginning next weekend on the frigid fields of Saskatchewan.

The scoring floodgates opened in the 9th minute of the first half off a free kick by TWU's Nick Perugini. The free kick was in a prime location just outside the right corner of the top of the box, and Perugini made no mistake putting it in the back of the net. His booming shot made its way cleanly past any obstacle and gave the Lethbridge keeper no chance as it hit the top left corner of the net.

The Spartans dominated play, keeping possession of the ball and forcing the Lethbridge forwards to sit in their own half and defend. The four shots the Pronghorns did get off in the half gave Spartan keeper Jacob Hanson little trouble.

TWU was not satisfied with a mere 1-0 lead, however, and managed to notch another tally just before halftime with a goal in the 42nd minute by Michael Riehl. Somehow Riehl ended up all alone right on the goal line and took full advantage of the space to calmly head Lee Ellis's cross into the back of the net.

The second half continued to be an offensive demonstration, while TWU's under-recognized defense allowed only one Pronghorn shot for the entire 45 minutes. Meanwhile, the Spartans shot with abandon and found the back of the net three more times before the final whistle blew.

Josh McCaig opened the second-half scoring with a goal in the 57th minute courtesy of a cross by teammate Trevor Rosencrans. The ball appeared to ricochet off a Lethbridge defender and into McCaig, before he chipped the ball over the keeper and into the net. Senior defender Marc Koroll had the whole bench up and cheering after he notched his first goal of the season (in his second-to-last game in a Spartan uniform) in the 82nd minute. Just after missing a golden opportunity with a header in the box, which the Lethbridge keeper managed to be in the right place at the right time for, Koroll got his second chance. Brian Scrivens served a perfect corner kick right to the feet of Koroll who, left all alone at the far post, tapped the ball past the helpless keeper. The Spartans' final goal came just three minutes later when Drew Roddy and Michael Riehl combined on a nice play for Riehl's second marker of the night.

On Saturday, October 25 the Spartan men host the University of Calgary at 4:15pm. Come cheer them on in their final home game of the year, and final regular season game. It's also Senior Saturday, so come support graduating Spartan soccer players Trevor Rosencrans and Marc Koroll in their final games at the Spartan Field Complex.

Game Notes: The Spartans dominated in every statistical category in this game...9-0 in corners...26-5 in shots...Marc Koroll was chosen as Husky Energy Spartan of the Game...Jacob Hanson and Chris Cecil split the time in net...
