Game Recap




LANGLEY, British Columbia  – For the second time in two years the Trinity Western University women’s soccer team has won the Canada West Championship. Led by Final Four MVP Natalie Boyd the Spartans earned their fifth CW title with a thrilling 2-1 victory over the University of Victoria. The win gives TWU the Canada West No. 1 spot at next week’s CIS championship, while the Vikes will go in as Canada West No. 2 and host. The championship runs Nov. 8-11 at the University of Victoria in Victoria.

Canada West Rookie of the Year Krista Gommeringer made the most of her opportunities as she potted both Spartan goals, while Victoria defender Carsen Machin scored the lone goal for the Vikes. Both were named their team’s respective player of the game

Trinity Western keeper Kristen Funk made four saves to earn the win, while Victoria’s Stephanie Parker made three saves in the loss. Each team finished with five shots on target, while TWU had the edge in total shots at 12 to nine.

With the Canada West banner on the line and national championship seeding looming, both teams put up a fast, physical and gritty conference final. As anticipated, play moved from end to end, through heavy rains as both teams gave no quarter in the battle for top spot in the conference.

Gommeringer opened the scoring in the 25th minute when she intercepted a Victoria pass between the backline, created some space, and sent a hard shot past Parker and into the left side of the Vikes net.

The rookie forward from Calgary got the Spartans the insurance goal in the 68th minute. Gommeringer took a beautiful pass from midfielder Isabella Di Trocchio to go in alone on the Victoria net. The Canada West point leader made no mistake as she put the Spartans up two with 22 minutes remaining.

The Vikes Carsen Machin was the lone goal scorer for the visitors as she connected on a Mallory Hackett corner kick in the 75th minute to bring the game to a frantic finish.

The Vikes, as Canada West silver medalists, will re-group for their CIS quarter-final match up on Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. against the conference winner from the RSEQ (Quebec), either Sherbrooke or Montreal. Trinity Western will face the silver medalist of the Ontario University Athletics conference, either Ottawa or Laurier, at 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 8.
