Spartan Fall to Gonzaga Bulldogs
TWU starts strong, but Gonzaga comes from behind for 3-1 win

– The Gonzaga University Bulldogs uses two goals within 1:15 minutes late in the first half to secure a 3-1 win over the visiting Trinity Western University men’s soccer team in an exhibition match at a hot Martin Field Sunday afternoon in Spokane, Washington.

“We have been able to use our entire roster of the last four games which has allowed us to see what everybody is capable of doing on the field,” said TWU Head Coach Al Alderson. “We showed a lot more promise in today’s match and we have seen a lot of improvement over the week.”

The visiting Spartans took a 1-0 lead at 10:03 when Nathan Pogue took a pass from Mustafa Demirci and had his right-to-left shot catch the far corner past Gonzaga keeper Vito Higgins.

But with kickoff temperature at 91 degrees, the Bulldogs finally heated up late in the first half. George Josten, who led the Bulldogs and the West Coast Conference with 12 goals and 19 points a year ago, took a thru ball from Peter Peterson and found the net at 41:18. Josten’s goal came after Scott Campbell’s shot had been saved by TWU keeper Tyler DeJong, but the Bulldogs maintained possession.

Just 76 seconds later the Bulldogs Tye Perdido, a much heralded player from Kula, HI, took a thru ball from Josten on the left side, dribbled in and shot to the far corner to beat DeJong with the go-ahead goal.

Gonzaga’s Tim Muravez all but sealed the win when he got a rebound off Ben Funkhouser’s free kick that was blocked by the wall and found the wide open net at 76:13.

Both Higgins, who finished with six saves, and DeJong, who had seven saves, came up with big stops.

It took TWU just 11 seconds to get a quality shot, Josip Maras’ shot over the wall on a free kick blocked away by the hand of the diving Higgins. DeJong saw his first real test in the 31st minute when Spokane’s John Palladino, making his return to action after sitting out last season with knee surgery, also had a free kick go over the wall of blockers and tipped by DeJong.

Both clubs had excellent scoring opportunities early in the second half. Higgins tipped a Demirci shot from 15 yards straightaway over the crossbar in the 50th minute. Both keepers were called to the task in the 55th minute. DeJong stopped a low, hard right-to-left shot by Grant Lundberg following a Gonzaga corner kick, and Higgins stuffed a Jason Flint shot from close range. A minute later Josten chipped a wide open shot over the net for the Bulldogs.

Minutes prior to Muravez’ goal, John Reha saw a wide open shot roll slowly past the far right post as the Bulldogs peppered the net with four straight shots, including a Perdido shot that hit the crossbar and two subsequent rebound shots that were blocked prior to Reha’s near miss.

Perdido also had a breakaway shot from the left of the box deflected wide by DeJong late in the game, and Reha’s header sailed over the open net in a pair of late attempts by Gonzaga. The Bulldogs held a 22-9 edge in shots.

The match was as heated as the weather at times as eight yellow cards were issued, the last on DeJong following the match as the officials were walking off the field. Gonzaga had three yellow cards, TWU five.

The Spartans will now head home for a week of practices before they host Corban College on Friday and the University of Calgary on Saturday. Friday’s match is at 3:00 pm, while Saturday’s has a 12:00 start time.

The Bulldogs open regular-season play this week at home. UNLV visits Friday for a 1 p.m. match followed by UC Davis on Sunday at 2 p.m.

Match Notes: Gonzaga outshot TWU 22-8...the Spartans keeper Tyler DeJong played the full 90 minutes in net and made eight saves...Gonzaga’s Vito Higgins played the full 90 minutes for the Bulldogs and made six saves...the Bulldogs finished with six corner kicks, while the Spartans finished with three...
