TRINITY WESTERN (2) FRASER VALLEY (1)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS HANG ON TO BEAT FRASER VALLEY



LANGLEY, British Columbia – With first-year striker Krista Gommeringer (Calgary) potting two second-half goals, the Trinity Western women’s soccer team earned a critical 2-1 win over Fraser Valley Friday at Rogers Field.

The Cascades Danica Kump (Surrey, B.C.) scored in stoppage time to make it a one-goal game but that was as close as UFV would get.

On a night when the visitors from Abbotsford, B.C. were forced to play a “home” game at Rogers Field due to unsuitable playing conditions on their home park, the Spartans were largely the better team throughout the contest and earned full marks for the win. Gommeringer scored in the 61st and 64th minutes as she now has league-leading 22 points, including 13 goals and nine assists. With her two goals, Gommeringer is now just one point shy of tying former Spartan Carlee O’Brien’s single-season points record of 23, which she set in 2004.

The Spartans are now 10-1 on the season and will have a chance to clinch the Canada West regular season title Saturday with a win or a tie against Victoria. The loss drops UFV to 6-4-1 on the year and, sitting on 19 points, the Cascades remain just one point clear of both Saskatchewan and Alberta, with Saturday’s tilt with UBC being their lone game remaining.

“I’m pleased we won because we played against a good, aggressive team and credit to Fraser Valley because they battled all the way through, even when we were up two goals,” said Spartans coach Graham Roxburgh. “I was really happy with our second half. We generated some really good chances and were unlucky not score one or two more. But the two we did get were both fantastic finishes from Krista.”

Trinity Western was the aggressor early on the first half as it maintained much of the possession and was buzzing all around the Cascades territory. But as the half wore on, UFV started to find its stride and by the end of the first 45 minutes had largely leveled the balance of play.

The Spartans best chance of the opening half came when Alicia Tesan (Vancouver) sent a cross into the box from the right flank that found Jenna Di Nunzio (North Delta, B.C.) all alone with just the keeper to beat. But Di Nunzio, trying to one-touch the ball on goal, miss-hit her opportunity and Cascades goalie Chantelle Biagioni (Pitt Meadows, B.C.) was there to easily gather in the attempt.

Fraser Valley had their best chance of the first half in the 37th minute, when Sunayna Samra (Langley) broke down the right side and had a clean shot on net from 12 yards out but Spartans goalie Kristen Funk (Calgary) made a diving stop to negate the opportunity.

The Spartans came out in the second half a much hungrier side and, just 16 minutes in, Gommeringer gave TWU a well-deserved advantage.

After an impressive run into the box from Nikki Bryne (Langley), the TWU defender found Gommeringer with a pass at the top of the area and, with a clean look on goal, the Spartans striker rifled her shot to the top right hand corner. Biagioni got a piece of it but not enough to keep the ball from finding twine.

Just over two minutes later, Gommeringer sealed the win when she, staying just onside, and took a pass from Jenn Castillo (Surrey) that went over the top of the Cascades back line and, with only the keeper to beat, the Calgarian slotted home her second of the night to the bottom right corner.

The Cascades made it close late in stoppage time when Kump found the back of the net after she connected with a free kick from just outside the box on the left side. But that was all the Cascades could muster offensively as a comeback simply wasn’t in the cards on this night.

Funk made five saves to earn the win for TWU while Biagioni stopped nine of 11 shots on target in the loss.

The Spartans will wrap up their regular season Saturday when they travel to Victoria to take on the Vikes at 5 p.m. The Cascades will travel to UBC Saturday in their final game of the year. Game time is at 5 p.m.

Game Notes: The win was the Spartans first of the season that came by less than a three-goal margin…TWU outshot UFV 19-11 and had an 11-6 advantage in shots on goal…TWU had 18 fouls to UFV’s 6…TWU’s Vanessa Kovacs (North Delta) and UFV’s Karlee Pederson (Abbotsford) were each shown yellow cards.
