SPARTANS DROP KEG CUP FINAL TO VIKES

VICTORIA  – The Trinity Western University Spartans dropped the final of the Victoria Keg Spring Cup 1-0 to the host University of Victoria on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon at Centennial Stadium in Victoria.

“It is a disappointing result for us not to come home with the Keg Cup,” commented TWU head coach Graham Roxburgh. “We didn’t really make any penetrating play in the first half. But we had a very good second half in terms of work rate and desire.”

The hometown Vikes started the match off strong.  A corner kick from Lindsay Hoetzel in the third minute became a goal for Mallory Hackett, who beat the Spartans' keeper, Bailey Williams-Kapels, in a goal-mouth scramble to roll the ball into the back of the net.  

Trinity Western made a few forays into the Vikes' end but Victoria had the majority of the ball possession during the first part of the half. Hoetzel was taken down just outside the Spartans' box in the 32nd minute but the resulting free kick, taken by Emma Greig, went straight to Williams-Kapels for an easy catch.  Except for one lofty attempt that skimmed the crossbar, Trinity Western did not have a lot of chances as the half wound down. The Vikes had 11 shots to the Spartans' four but just one goal to leave the score 1-0 going into the second half.

Victoria switched keepers at the break; Tanya Jones took over for Stephanie Parker. Jones was tested early with a high corner that curved in towards the goal but she got a fist on it and punched the attempt away.

Trinity Western thought they had a goal at the 75th minute but it was disallowed by the referee. Jones caught a high shot but was off balance and in traffic and she went into her net with the ball. The head official pointed to centre for the goal but after a quick consultation with his linewoman the referee stopped the Trinity Western celebrations and awarded a goal kick to the Vikes. The Spartans had some good chances after their disallowed attempt most notably by Isabella Di Trocchio in the 85th minute, but Jones made and outstanding save to keep Trinity Western from getting on the score sheet.

Match Notes: Today’s result marks the first time in three years that the Spartans have not returned home with the Keg Cup title…
