SPARTANS SOCCER OPENS CANADA WEST HOME SCHEDULE

LANGLEY, British Columbia
– The Trinity Western Spartans men's and women's soccer teams, open their home schedule tonight at Rogers Park in Langley, B.C.

The women's team, which won its first two games of the regular season last weekend (2-0 over Lethbridge and 2-1 over Calgary) and is ranked No. 1 in the CIS, takes on an unranked Regina squad (1-0-1) tonight with kickoff at 5:00 p.m.

The men's team looks to get in the win column for the first time this year after they dropped a 3-0 decision at UBC last weekend and will hope to do so against a feisty Victoria team that comes to Langley with an 0-2-0 record. Kickoff is at 7:00 p.m.
