TWU Spartans (1) at SFU Clan (0)


Kekec Scores in 89th minute to Earn Win
BURNABY, British Columbia
– Trinity Western University forward Adrian Kekec (3rd year, Burnaby) scored his 13th goal of the season in the 89th minute to lift the Spartans to a 1-0 victory over the Simon Fraser University Clan men’s soccer team early Wednesday evening. The Clan falls to 3-6-3 (NAIA) on the season, while the Spartans improve to 11-4-1 in overall play, 5-2-1 in Canada West.

From the outset it appeared that both teams were determined to win the match, a match characterized by the aggressive play of both Simon Fraser and Trinity Western. SFU received the game’s first card in the second minute of play, when fourth-year forward Brendan Stabeno (Beaverton, OR) was shown a yellow card after a hard tackle. Six cards were handed out in all, including a red card to TWU’s Justin Farenik (Calgary, AB) in the 40th minute. The Spartans were then forced to play with a man down for the remaining five minutes of the first half, injury time, and the entire second half.

 “Every body played well and it was a pretty even game despite being down and man, which made it quite difficult at times,” said TWU Head Coach Al Alderson. “Nick [Perugini] (Montreal) and Josh [McCaig] (Mission) did a great job in the centre of the park in terms of directing us as we played a man short.”

On the ensuing free kick off the red card, SFU’s Luca Bellisomo (Johannesburg, South Africa) had his header attempt saved by TWU’s starting goalkeeper Kris Alexander (North Vancouver, B.C.). Alexander was replaced at halftime by Adam Alvaro (North Vancouver, B.C.).
The Clan applied consistent pressure throughout the second half; however costly offsides and missed opportunities dictated their play. Then, in the 89th minute, a miscommunication between SFU keeper Thomas Lindley (Seabright, N.S.) and his defender occurred after a cross was sent into the box by the Spartans. Lindley charged out of his net to play the cross, however the ball popped loose as Kekec was bearing down, giving Kekec a wide open net to bury the game’s lone goal.
The two teams tied in total shots (seven), while SFU led in shots on goal 3-to-2 and fouls 14-to-11. TWU led in corner kicks 6-to-4. Keeper Lindley picked up the loss for the Clan, while Alvaro was credited with the victory for the Spartans.
Next up for TWU is at UBC on Oct. 14. Match time is set for 7:00 p.m. SFU is back in action on Monday, Oct. 16, when they travel to Seattle to face Seattle Pacific University.
