Men’s Soccer (Pre-Season)

TWU Spartans (2) at the Oregon State University Beavers (5)



– The Trinity Western University men’s soccer team fell 5-2 to NCAA Div. I Oregon State University Sunday afternoon in a friendly played in Corvallis, Ore.

"We are obviously disappointed with the result tonight. We need to take a look at ourselves and grow from this experience," commented TWU associate head coach Mike Shearon. "In the end we can become better because of what happened tonight. It is a choice each guys needs to make."

The Spartans gave up an early goal in the 17th minute to the Beavers Mike Parker on a penalty kick, but hung tough with Oregon until the 40th minute. That’s when OSU scored three goals in 11 minutes, Danny Mwanga 40th 51st, Chris Harms 47th on a penalty kick, to break the match open.

TWU’s David Rowse (St. Albert, Alta.) got the Spartans on the board in the 66th minute to make it a 4-1 match. Five minutes later OSU regained their four goal cushion on a goal by Eddy Prugh in the 71st minute. The Spartans Garrett Traversy (Delta, B.C.) closed out the scoring in the 119th minute to make the final 5-2.

The Spartans keeper Andrew Kowan (Richmond, B.C.) made seven saves and played the full match for TWU. OSU had the edge in play as they outshot TWU 25-8 and had 10 corners to the Spartans 2.

The exhibition match took on a different form than a normal soccer match, there were two 45 minute periods like normal which were followed by a third, 30 minute period which was used a time to allow everyone game play experience.

Trinity Western will continue their annual Pacific Northwest pre-season matches with the University of Washington on Aug. 25 and then Gonzaga University on Sept. 1 before returning home to host Simon Fraser on Sept. 4.

This fall Trinity Western will be the proud hosts of the 2009 CIS men's soccer championships. With their host position the Spartans’ men’s team will set a TWU school record with five straight CIS men's soccer championship appearances. The Spartans have won three national championship medals (silver in 2008 and 2006 and bronze in 2005, they were fifth in 2007), and have finished as Canada West regular season champions in 2003, 2004, and 2007.
