TWU Spartans (0) vs. the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (1)


#1 T-Birds top #3 Spartans
UBC comes out on top 1-0 in rematch of the 2005 Canada West Championship

LANGLEY, British Columbia
– The #3 Trinity Western University men’s soccer team fell 1-0 to the #1 University of British Columbia Thunderbirds Saturday night at TWU’s Langley campus. There was a play-off intensity in a match that was fitting for two of the top teams in the country. UBC’s Steve Frazao’s goal in the 28th minute proved to be the difference as the Thunderbirds won the rematch of last years Canada West championship, which the Spartans won 2-1.

“We haven’t had our starting group playing together throughout the preseason and it showed tonight. We did not start the match playing at the level that a match between TWU and UBC demands,” said TWU Head Coach Al Alderson. “But in the final 15 minutes you saw the way we can play when we go to our strengths. We can be pretty scary to defend against. It wasn’t the result that we wanted, but we need to focus on the good things that we did at the end of the match.”

The Spartans timing was off for much of the first three quarters of the match. Forwards and midfielders were starting their runs after through balls had been hit. As a result the passes were easily played by the UBC defenders or their keeper. On the other side of the ball UBC was finding Luke Sandilands open in the middle of the park. As he was getting the ball his forwards were already on their runs, which caused problems for the Spartan defenders.

It was such a play that resulted in the lone goal of the match. The T-Birds hit a high ball to Sadilands about ten yards past the centre stripe. Sandilands flicked the ball on to a sprinting Steve Frazao. Frazao went in alone on TWU keeper Tyler DeJong. Frazao finished the play by slotting the ball into the lower left corner of the Spartans net.

The Thunderbirds continued to control the play for the remainder of the half.

Then if the 70th minute the Spartans started to click and took the match to another level. If it weren’t for a couple of outstanding saves by UBC’s keeper Serge Djekanovic the Spartans could have easily tied the match or come out on top.

Stefan Leslie had a chance in the 71st minute, which Djekanovic went high to corral. Then in the 75th minute TWU forward Justin Cordick was taken down from behind just outside the top of the UBC penalty area. But the foul was disallowed as the linesman ruled that a Trinity Western player was offside.

The Spartans continued to push. In extra time Adrian Kekec drilled a point blank shot to an open corner, but Djekanovic was able to make the save to preserve the UBC win.

Next up for the Spartans is Friday, September 15 when they will host the University of Lethbridge. Match time at TWU is set for 7:15 pm.

Match Notes: TWU and UBC are 4-4-4 since the Spartans joined the CIS...TWU outshot UBC 14-13...Tyler DeJong made three saves and played the full 90 minutes for the Spartans, while Djekanovic made seven saves and played the full frame for the T-Birds...TWU had seven corner kicks, while UBC had none...
