PETERS THE HERO AS SPARTANS DOWN VICTORIA



LANGLEY, British Columbia –
Trinity Western’s Garrett Peters needed only two minutes of playing time to become the game’s hero as the Regina striker came on as a late-match substitute and scored in added time to give the Spartans a 2-1 win over Victoria at Rogers Park Saturday.

With the game knotted 1-1, striker Spencer Schmidt sent a free kick into the box off the right flank and Peters was the first one to it, heading home the winner past helpless Victoria goalkeeper Elliot Mitrou and sending the crowd of 250 into a frenzy.

Schmidt opened the scoring in the 71st minute as he notched his first regular season snipe as a Spartan but Victoria’s Andrew Ravenhill tied the game just seven minutes later, which ultimately set the stage for a frantic final 10 minutes and dramatic finish.

“The good thing about Canada West is you don’t get a lot of time to think about what happened the night before,” said Spartans coach Pat Rohla. “We came out and just decided that we were going to go after it and we did. We changed a couple of things structurally and I think everyone was committed to the cause and played hard for each other. We passed a little better. We had numbers on the ball in attack and defensively. What a difference a day makes.”

With the win Trinity Western moves to 1-1-0 on the season, after opening the campaign Friday with a 1-0 loss to Fraser Valley, while Victoria is now 0-2-0 after losing to UBC 4-0 Friday.

The win was the Spartans first Canada West regular season win in their last six tries, dating back to last year when they finished winless in four.

The Vikes started the game with the larger share of possession and, while the Spartans were a markedly improved team compared to the one that played Friday, it was Victoria earning four corner kicks in the opening 20 minutes.

Unfortunately for the visiting side, their early game worked amounted to zilch on the scoreboard.

After the 20-minute mark, the Spartans pushed back.

First-year midfielder Brayden Gant nearly opened the scoring in the 23rd minute when he ripped a bicycle kick attempt on net from in tight, only to be stymied by a sprawling Mitrou who dove to his right to make a brilliant save.

Three minutes later, the Spartans again nearly lit up the scoreboard first when Schmidt took a free kick from just beyond the area that rocketed off the crossbar.

In the second stage, the game lost of bit of its flowing momentum as the teams booted the ball around the middle of the park, largely struggling to push for offence.

In the 71st minute Trinity Western finally broke through as Daniel Lowen, who had been substituted on less than two minutes earlier, gave Schmidt the ball in the box and the sizable striker turned on a dime just beyond the six-yard box and whipped in a blasting shot that beat a frozen Mitrou to the keeper’s right side.

Just seven minutes later though, Victoria responded. The Vikes Gavin Barrett, raced down the right wing and sent a low drive into the box that eluded both the Spartans defenders and a diving Fink only to find the waiting foot of Ravenhill who slotted into a wide open net.

That set the stage for Peters to play.

The Spartans Goran Vitic had a couple of brilliant opportunities for a go-ahead goal in the 80th and 83rd minutes but on both occasions was stopped by a Mitrou, who finished with six saves.

Trinity Western’s Fink had three saves, most notably a stop on Miguel Romeo in the 84th minute.

Game Notes: TWU outshot Victoria 15-10 and had an 8-4 advantage in shots on goal…after nine yellow cards were handed out Friday against UFV, not one card was shown Saturday.
