TWU Spartans (67) at Lethbridge Pronghorns (58)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS OFF TO BEST START EVER

LANGLEY, British Columbia - The Trinity Western University Spartans won their home opener 67-58 over the Lethbridge University Pronghorns at TWU's Langley, B.C. campus. The win gives the Spartans three victories in five games, the most wins they've ever had this early in the season in their nine-year history in the CIS.

"We played well and we really needed the win," said TWU Head Coach Kerby Court. "This is our first situation where we had a pretty big lead that got away from us. But we came back in the fourth quarter, made some great shots to start it off and then stemmed the tide late."

After both teams struggled in the first quarter, the Spartans found their form in the second, and led the Pronghorns 33-16 at the break. TWU shot 42% in the half, while Lethbridge hit just six of 24 attempts.

The Pronghorns then owned the third quarter. Trailing 40-20 Lethbridge went on a 21-0 run to take a 41-40 lead with 2:05 left in the quarter on one of Karen Bridge's (Sorrento, B.C.) three three-pointers on the night. TWU went scoreless for almost six minutes during that stretch, but would hit some free throws late in the quarter to lead 42-41.

The two teams traded baskets throughout the fourth, and the game was tied at 58 with two minutes left. Liesa Ohman (Langley, B.C.) nailed one of her six three pointers that gave the Spartans the lead, and then through defense, rebounds, and free throws they hung on for the victory. Spartans post Heather Van Wieren (Walnut Grove, B.C.) hit four of those clinching free throws, and finished with eight points and five rebounds.

"I think that defense was one of our keys in the fourth quarter although we did score some baskets getting back into the scoring mode," said Coach Court. "When you talk about defense, rebounding is a huge part of it. I felt that our rebounding down the stretch was just as key as our defense."

Ohman (Langley, B.C.) led all scorers with 22 points in 23 minutes. The Pronghorns top scorer was Stephanie Elford (Calgary) with 16 points, and three rebounds, and Ashley McClenaghan (Calgary) added 11 points and eight boards.

The win moves TWU to 3-1 and drops Lethbridge to 0-4 in Canada West play. The Spartans next host the #9 ranked Calgary Dinos at the David E. Enarson Gymnasium in Langley, B.C. Lethbridge travels up to Burnaby Mountain to face the #1 ranked Simon Fraser Clan. Both games are set for 6 p.m. starts tomorrow night, Saturday, November 10.

Game Notes- Ohman's 22 points ties a career high set last season vs. Thompson Rivers on November 17, 2006. Her six three pointers tied her own single game record she set last year in the same game against TRU. She shares the record with Taylor Stuart, who had six vs. Regina on November 4, 2005...The Pronghorns shot 48.5% in the second half, including four of seven on three pointers.
