TWU Spartans (4) vs. the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds (1)


-TWU dominates UBC in win

LANGLEY, British Columbia - The Trinity Western duo of Nathan Pogue (3rd year, Seaside, Ore) and Adrian Kekec (4th year, Burnaby, B.C.) made life miserable for the University of British Columbia Friday night at TWU's Langley, B.C. campus. The two scoring dynamo's helped the Spartans defeat the Thunderbirds 4-1 to give TWU their third Canada West title in four years.

"It's great to win another league title and be able to host the play-offs in front of our home fans. It's also nice to be able to do it with three games left in the season." said TWU Head Coach Al Alderson. "I was happy with the way we came out tonight. Adrian and Nathan came out incredibly sharp and the rest of our team fed off of the way that they played up front. They put a ton of pressure on UBC and made great runs to great spots."

Pogue, who leads Canada West in scoring with nine goals, scored twice, while Kekec added two assists to lead the Spartans to the most lopsided victory in their history of playing the Thunderbirds.

Patrick Kelly (4th year, Cochrane, Alta.) opened the scoring in the 13th minute. Kelly took a chip pass from Kekec and split the UBC defenders to go in alone on UBC keeper Elliot Usher (Vancouver). Kelly then lifted the ball over the charging Usher and into the top centre of the Thunderbirds net.

The Spartans speed up front and in the midfield continually caused problems for the Thunderbirds. The home team used their pace to force a turnover by the UBC deep in their end of the park. Kekec stole a ball that was being sent back to UBC's keeper and then centered the ball to a charging Pogue. Pogue then buried the ball into the centre of the Thunderbird net to make it 2-0 for TWU in the 35th minute.

Justin Farenik (3rd year, Calgary) made it 3-0 for TWU just under a minute before the half-time whistle. Adrian Kekec sent a corner kick across the UBC net to midfielder Justin Cordick (5th year, Anmore, B.C.). Then in the goal mouth scramble Cordick got the ball to Farenik who was able to give the Spartans a 3-0 lead at the half.

The Spartans did not let up to start the second half. Pogue's speed again caused UBC problems in the 47th minute. The Spartan forward took a long punt that was misplayed by UBC's back line to go in alone down the leftside of the park. Pogue then slipped the ball past UBC's Nikolai Matni (Brossard, Que,), who had subbed in at the half, to give the Spartans the 4-0 lead.

With the four goal difference both coaches subbed out key players through the remainder of the half.

The Thunderbirds got their lone goal of the match in the 85th minute off of a corner kick. UBC's Mike Marsh (Dartmouth, N.S.) sent the ball into the TWU penalty area to a waiting Graham Smith (Abbotsford, B.C.). Smith went high and headed the ball into the top of the Spartans net to make the final 4-1.

Next up for the Spartans is hosting the University of Victoria Vikes. Game time on Saturday is set for 7:15 p.m. at TWU's Spartan Field. Next up for the Thunderbirds is at the UCFV Cascades on Saturday afternoon.

Match Notes: TWU outshot UBC 20-12 and had the edge in shots on goal at 8-5...the Spartans outshot the Thunderbirds 13-3 in the first half...TWU had the edge in corners at 7-2...Until today the Spartans had never beaten the Thunderbirds by more then one goal...earlier this season TWU beat UBC 1-0 at UBC...the Spartans now hold the edge in the lifetime series at 6-5-4... TWU won Canada West league title in (2003, 2004)...this will be the second time TWU has hosted CW final four (2005)...
