LANGLEY, British Columbia
– In a game laden with yellow cards, nine in total, the Trinity Western men’s soccer team fell to visiting Fraser Valley 1-0 in both team’s season opening match played at Rogers Park Friday.

In front of a boisterous crowd of 630, the Spartans fell behind in the 17th minute on a goal by Craig Robinson and, in what was a rather sloppy game from both sides, were unable to discover an equaliser.

The victory marked the first time the Cascades have ever taken all three points from CIS match at Trinity Western.

“The game lacked the passion and lacked the passion we needed to display to have success,” said TWU coach Pat Rohla. “I think we were all waiting on someone else to do it instead of going after it. It was too little too late. We created opportunities at the end but nobody really wanted to step and finish it. Collectively it was not good. Individually it was not good. We had a good preseason but this league play and you have to be able to go up another notch to have success.”

The game never really found any sort of consistent flow as the teams combined for 28 fouls and, trudging along, managed to collect more cards – five yellows for TWU and four yellows for UFV – than shots on target, with each team putting just four attempts on net.  

The two rivals, who last time they locked horns at Rogers Park combined for six yellow cards and two red cards, did get off to a bit of see-saw start that struck hope in fans that the game had potential for excitement.

Former Cascades striker Spencer Schmidt – now with the Spartans – who was soundly booed by UFV supporters when his name was announced amongst the TWU starters and then heckled again when he touched the ball in the early stages, looked dangerous in the first few minutes but with tight coverage, notably from UFV’s Ravi Singh, he was slowed as the game progressed and ultimately was unable to generate much substance.

Robinson opened the scoring when he collected a long ball from Juan Pablo Mora Perea and broke in on the right side of the box. Once inside the area, he took a left flowing shot that deflected off a defender and went right, beating Spartans goalie Andrew Fink low and to his left as he could do nothing but watch the ball ricocheted in.

From there, it was a lot of kick and chase as neither team seemed interested in seizing momentum or creating any sort of offensive push.

The last registered shot on net came in the 41st minute when UFV goalie Mark Village stopped a Schmidt attempt. Neither goalie was tested in the final 50 minutes.

The Spartans best chance to tie the game came in the 86th minute when Goran Vitic found the ball at his feet near the penalty kick spot. But, despite Village scrambling to get back in position, giving Vitic an opportunity, the fifth-year midfielder whipped the ball wide right.

That was as close as TWU would come on this night as the Cascades would go on to celebrate a monumental victory.

Game Notes:  The Spartans had 12 total shots while the Cascades had 11…TWU had eight corner kicks while UFV had five…UFV was whistled for five offside calls while TWU wasn’t called offside once.
