TWU Opens 06-07 Pre-season with Loss to Seattle Pacific University
Spartans hold the edge in shots, but fall 2-1 to Falcons

Seattle, Washington – A penalty kick goal in the 67th minute gave the Seattle Pacific University Falcons a 2-1 victory over the visiting Trinity Western University Spartans Tuesday night in Seattle. The loss drops the TWU men’s soccer team to 0-1 on the season.

“We had a great first half and we played descent in the second half,” said TWU Head Coach Al Alderson. “It was the wrong result, but there were lots of great things for us to build on.”

TWU opened the scoring in the 38th minute on a penalty kick by Spartan forward Adrian Kekec (3rd yr, Burnaby, B.C.). The goal developed when TWU’s Nathan Pogue (2nd year, forward, Seaside,OR) won a challenge in the SPU end of the field. Pogue got the ball to forward Josh McCaig (5th year, forward, Mission, B.C.), who then fed a diagonal ball between the two Falcon defenders to an oncoming Kekec. Kekec was then awarded the Penalty Kick after he was taken down in the penalty area by the SPU defenders.

SPU tied the match in the 33rd minute and got the game winner in the 67th on a Penalty Kick.

Next up for the Spartans is a scrimmage Wednesday night at 7:00 pm at TWU. The Spartans will then be back on the road for a match with Oregon State on August 18th. Match time in Corvallis, OR is set for 7:00 pm.

Match Notes: TWU out-shot SPU 11-6...the two teams each had two corner kicks...TWU’s Adam Alvaro (2nd year, North Vancouver) played the full ninety minutes in his first start in goal for the Spartans...the Falcons have won five NCAA Div. II championships...last year the Spartans defeated the Falcons 1-0 on August 17th to open their 05-06 season...
