LANGLEY, British Columbia
– On the back of a 27 to four shot advantage the No. 9 Trinity Western University Spartans defeated the University of Regina Cougars 3-0 in Canada West women’s soccer action Saturday night at TWU’s Rogers Park in Langley, B.C.

The impressive win moves the Spartans to 2-1-0 on the season, while the loss drops Regina to 0-3-1.

“I thought we were very good today. I thought our possession and ball control was excellent. I thought there were a number of great performances again. It was a team effort. Everybody had the jump that you look for. We talked about having a good start and we generated a lot of chances. We maybe didn’t execute in the first 30 minutes as well as I would have liked but sometimes you have to be patient and eventually you take your chances and things kind of settle down from there,” commented TWU head coach Graham Roxburgh.

Trinity Western controlled the match from the opening minute and allowed very little opportunities for the visitors from the Prairies. If not for the fine goal keeping by Regina’s Michelle Anderson, who made nine saves, the score could have been more lopsided in TWU’s favour. The Spartans Kristen Funk was solid when challenged and made two saves to earn the shutout win.

After a number of quality chances the Spartans finally got on the board in the 35th minute of the first half. TWU midfielder Jenna Di Nunzio started the play by making a strong run up the left side of the pitch. Di Nunzio sent a fine cross to the centre of the penalty area where forward Daniela Gerig was charging hard to the box. Gerig met the ball and finished nicely to put the Spartans up 1-0.

Trinity Western got their second of the match eight minutes later, and once again Di Nunzio was the playmaker.  The second year midfielder took the TWU corner with an arching cross to the far side of the six yard box. The Spartans Jennifer Castillo was at the spot and went high to head the ball into the top of the Regina net to give TWU the 2-0 lead.

Jenna Di Nunzio was very good tonight with two assists. She played very well and gave us a spark. I thought Tessa Meyer was excellent. She had tons of energy and did a lot of work and when we played her in the back she looked comfortable. And again our back four was excellent,” said Roxburgh.

The Spartans finished the half with the 2-0 lead after dominating play as they outshot the Cougars 14-2.

TWU continued their strong play to start the second half and their efforts were rewarded quickly when Spartans forward Alicia Tesan sent teammate Jessica King in alone up the left side of the penalty area. In alone King perfectly chipped the ball over a charging Anderson into and into the top left corner of the Cougars net to make it 3-0 with 39 minutes remaining in the match.

Trinity Western continued to control the play through to the end of the match, but were unable to add to their total to make the final 3-0.

“We’ve got a squad that we feel at any given time we can pick 11 and expect them to play well. So some of the players who haven’t played as much got some minutes and did very well,” added Roxburgh.

The Spartans now head on the road for two weeks as the travel through the Canadian Prairies. Next weekend TWU is at Alberta and Saskatchewan on Saturday and Sunday, which they will follow with matches at Regina and Manitoba. Next up for the Cougars is a home match against the University of Manitoba on Sept. 24.

Match Notes: TWU finished with 10 corner kicks to Regina’s two…the Spartans were called for seven off sides, while Regina had none…Anderson was named the player of the match for Regina, while midfielder Melissa Mobilio earned the honours for TWU… “I thought Melissa Mobilio had a very good game. She was energetic early on and took players on. When she came in as a central back, she showed the poise and a little bit more of the ability to pass from midfield that we were looking for,” commented Roxburgh his player of the match…Tonight's match was part of the CIS's "Go Shoeless" campaign as TW's Roxburgh went without shoes for the duration of the match.
