TWU Spartans (0) vs. the University of Calgary Dinos (1)


Late Goal Gives Dinos Unlikely Victory

LANGLEY, British Columbia
-The TWU Spartans carried the momentum for most of the match, but the tides turned when University of Calgary Dinos forward David Bird (Calgary) intercepted a ball in Spartan Territory and beat keeper Tyler DeJong (1st year, Abbotsford) to the bottom left corner.

The Dinos managed to keep the Spartans scoreless through 90 minutes and it took a lot to do so. 
The Spartans put on a rush about halfway through the second period, but the Calgary defense consistently found ways to protect their net.

Calgary keeper, J.P. Crescenzi (Calgary) performed well, playing the ball wisely on two corners and stopping a few good scoring opportunities for TWU, one of which came on a shot from Stefan Leslie (1st year, Surrey) followed by the rebound attempt from Joshua McCaig (5th year, Mission), but both were to no avail.  Bruno Napoleao (2nd year, Edmonton) also had a great chance in the 85th minute when he sent a rifling shot two feet over the crossbar.

Both teams were fighting for inches all match, and neither seemed like they were gaining much on the other.  Some disparity came between the teams when the Spartans turned up the intensity with about 30 minutes remaining.  The Dinos had enough trouble containing the Spartan attack that they couldn’t seem to get many opportunities near the Spartan net.  Calgary played a physical match in order to keep tabs on the Spartans’ speed.  It looked as if the Dinos were playing for the tie, hoping to have some success on a counter attack.

“The game went exactly how they wanted it to go.  Time just kept ticking away,” said TWU Head Coach Al Alderson.

The Spartans showed they have the ability to step up and force teams to respond to their speed and control of the game.   “It’s so great to watch when we play with passion, heart, and intensity and I think we were worthy of a much better outcome.  We just got incredibly unlucky with a fluke mistake,” Alderson commented after the game.

Shots were in favor of the Spartans 14-5, but it was the Dinos that came up big with less than 30 seconds remaining in regulation, leaving very little time for the Spartans to answer.  It was a shocking finish that gave the Dinos the win over the 6th ranked Spartans. 

The Spartans play next at the University of Saskatchewan on September 23, 2006 and then at the University of Alberta on the 24th.

Match Notes: Shots: Spartans 14 Dinos 5...Shots on goal: Trinity Western 7 Calgary 3...the Spartans are now 2-2-0, while the win moves the Dinos to a preseason match earlier this season the Spartans defeated the Dinos 3-0...
