Spartans Finish on Top

Langley, British Columbia - TWU's men's soccer team continued its scoring tear this afternoon, tallying four goals and shutting out its second straight opponent, the University of Calgary Dinos. With today's victory and ensuing three points, the Spartans have clinched first place in Canada West, finishing the regular season with a 9-2-1 record, 31 goals scored, and 28 points.

The Calgary Dinos came on strong right at the opening whistle, and a curving laser of a shot by Carlos Cruz 42 seconds in almost shocked the Spartans, whipping by the leaping Chris Cecil before hitting the right post. The Spartans quickly got down to business, however, and Michael Riehl took it right back at the Dinos in the second minute, but missed a golden opportunity in the box as his chip shot sailed over the crossbar. And that was all in the opening three minutes of the first half!

The first half continued at a frenetic pace, with Calgary battling hard but overmatched against a speedier, crisper-passing Spartan side.

TWU opened the scoring in the ninth minute when Simon Crocker scored an amazing goal off a beautifully taken corner that went over everyone and curved into the net. A Dino defender helped the ball on its way into the net by misfiring on a clearing attempt, but the ball was well on its way as a goal before he got to it.

The Spartans struck again in the 18th minute off a perfectly timed header by forward Josh McCaig that arced over the arms of the Calgary keeper, under the crossbar and in. Mike Barney tallied the assist with his pass into the box from way back on the left side, just over half.

The third first-half marker came in the 30th minute when Nick Perugini pounced on a loose ball that had deflected off a Calgary defender to the top of the box. Perugini one-timed his bullet of a shot into the right side of the net, giving the keeper no chance whatsoever to even react. The first half ended with the Spartans up 3-0.

After firing off ten shots in the first half the Spartan men played a bit more relaxed in the second half, managing only three shots at a slightly slower, but no less entertaining, pace. There were more starts and stops to the play, however, as Calgary was whistled for 16 fouls (TWU for seven) in the second half alone.

Just when it appeared that the three first-half goals would stand as the final score, Mike Barney decided to put the icing on the cake, scoring in the 89th minute with a sweet little flick in the box. Trevor Rosencrans was credited with the assist off the corner kick.

The Spartan men now get a week to "rest" before heading off to the windy plains of Saskatchewan for the Canada West playoffs, where they'll face Saskatchewan in their first game. UVIC and UBC are still battling over which team gets the final playoff spot, with the winner facing Alberta next weekend.

Game Notes: TWU outshot Calgary 13-6...dominated in corners 12-3...the Dinos had 22 fouls to the Spartans' 7...Chris Cecil (1st half, 2 saves) and Jacob Hanson (2nd half, 1 save) split the shutout...Coach Al got his obligatory victory Powerade/water bath after the game...tonight's final result marked a lot of firsts in Spartan Athletics history: first time a Spartan team has finished the regular season in first place in Canada West...first time either soccer team has been ranked in the top ten in CIS for the entire season...first time men's soccer has gone to the Canada West playoffs in its short 3-year CIS history...
