SOCCER TEAMS OPEN SEASONS AGAINST LOCAL RIVALS

LANGLEY, British Columbia – The Trinity Western men’s and women’s soccer teams will open their 2013-14 seasons with a bang as both sides will launch their Canada West campaigns with rivalry weekends.

After that, the Spartans will play six straight games at home before finishing on the road against Calgary and Lethbridge Oct. 26-27.
