Game Recap

Game Recap




– Led by Melissa Mobilio’s two goals the Trinity Western University Spartans defeated the University of Manitoba Bisons 4-1 Sunday afternoon at the University of Manitoba’s Turf Field West. The win improves the No. 5 Spartans record to 6-1-0, extends their winning streak to six matches and puts them in top spot in Canada West, while the loss drops the Bisons to 2-6-0.

 “We had lots of good performances all around, Natalie Boyd played extremely well all weekend and Jenna Di Nunzio did tremendously well and was unfortunate not to be rewarded with a goal. I’m disappointed that we couldn’t get Funk the shut-out, but in the end it was a good win,” commented TWU head coach Graham Roxburgh.

Trinity Western came out strong in the first half, and immediately put pressure on the Bisons. Just over three minutes in to the match the Spartans’ Jenna Di Nunzio got in close to the goal and fired a shot that rang off the bottom of the crossbar and bounced out.

A few minutes later Mobilio would fire a long but accurate shot on net that the Bisons’ goalie Chloe Werle would dive for, but only manage to get her fingertips on, and the ball would sail into the net, putting Trinity Western up 1-0 early in the fifth minute of play.

“Melissa was fantastic today and showed why she is one of the premier players in Canada. Her movement, ability to run at people and her decision making was excellent,” commented Roxburgh on Mobilio.

Manitoba responded in the 21st minute when Paula Fast got in close on net for a shot that was initially stopped by the Spartans’ goaltender Kristen Funk. However the ball caught the cross bar and deflected down into play where Fast made no mistake on her second shot, to tie the match at 1-1.

With time winding down Mobilio would strike again, from almost the same position on the field as her first goal she launched the ball clear over Werle’s head to give the Spartans a 2-1 lead to finish off the first half.

“Pleased that we got into the half 2-1, because there were times in the first half the Manitoba was playing some very nice soccer.  At half time we talked about linking and moving the ball more, which we were able to do in the second half,” said Roxburgh.

The Spartans’ Jennifer Castillo would get the insurance goal for TWU in the 71st minute when she put her team up by two with a header off of the corner that Werle couldn’t find, and the ball would end up in the back of the net to give TWU the 3-1 lead.

Daniela Gerig finished off the scoring on the night in extra time when she took a pretty feed from forward Nikki Wright and placed it neatly into the back of the net to make the final 4-1 for TWU.

TWU’s Funk made two saves to earn the win, but had her and the Spartans shutout streak snapped at 422 minutes. Manitoba’s Werle made nine saves in the Bisons loss.

The Spartans will now return home to host the University of Victoria Vikes and the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades on Fri. Oct. 7 and Sat. Oct. 8. Both matches are scheduled for a 5 p.m. kick-off.

Match notes:
TWU finished the match with a 20 to nine shot advantage and a seven to three edge in corner kicks…earlier this season, Sept. 16, the Spartans defeated the Bisons by a similar 4-1 score…Manitoba is one of only two teams to score on the Spartans, the other being UBC, who gave the Spartans their only defeat, 1-0, to open the CW season…
