FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TWU DEFEATS CINCINNATI
-Spartans too much for NCAA Division I Bearcats

CINCINNATI
– Despite battling numerous injuries the Trinity Western University women’s soccer team continues to improve each game of their Ohio road trip. Tonight (Aug. 23) in Cincinnati the Spartans dropped NCAA Div. I University of Cincinnati Bearcats 2-0 in a preseason contest at Gettler Stadium.

The Bearcats outshot the Spartans, 14-7, and took 12 corner kicks but could not crack the scoreboard.  TWU goalkeeper Lauren Chartrand (first year, Powell River, B.C.) made eight saves to earn her first win as a Spartan.

Trinity Western opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when third year midfielder Andrea McLachlan (Maple Ridge, B.C.) put home a rebound after a Whitney Agassiz (fifth year, midfield, Salmon Arm, B.C.) shot.  TWU put the match on ice in the 78th minute when first year forward Daniela Gerig (Langley, B.C.) slotted a shot past UC keeper Andrea Kaminski for the final margin.

Brittney Hansen played the first half in net for UC, making three saves, while Kaminski entered for the final 45 minutes.  Each keeper allowed one goal.

Next up for the Spartans is their final match of the four game road trip when they will travel to Mount Vernon, Ohio to face Mount Vernon Nazarene. Match time on Saturday, August 25 is set for 5 p.m. local time.

TWU opens Canada West Conference play on Friday September 7 when they will host the University of Calgary Dinos. Match time at Spartan Field is set for 5 p.m.

Match Notes: TWU is now 1-1-1 in preseason play against NCAA schools...Chartrand’s normal position is in the midfield or as a defender. She has been pressed into keeping duties after injuries sidelined TWU’s other three keepers...the Spartan lost to Wright State and tied Miami of Ohio in their two previous matches...Cincinnati plays in the Big East Conference of the NCAA...
