SPARTANS OVER VIKINGS IN FINAL HOME MATCH OF SPRING

LANGLEY, British Columbia – The Trinity Western University women’s soccer team finished up their home spring schedule with a solid 3-1 win over the visiting Western Washington University Vikings Wednesday evening at TWU’s Rogers Field in Langley, B.C.

“It was a good performance and everyone got some minutes which I was pleased with,” commented TWU head coach Graham Roxburgh. “We will now look to finish of the season strong in Seattle.”

The Vikings opened the scoring in the 20th minute of the first half. WWU took advantage of a defensive breakdown to give the visitors from Bellingham, Wash. the early 1-0 lead. The lead would stand over the first 45 minutes as TWU went into the break trailing 1-0.

The Spartans started to play more aggressively in the second frame. TWU scored three goals in quick succession to blow open the contest.

Natalie Boyd (Surrey, B.C.) opened the Spartans scoring with a penalty kick in the 60th minute to tie the match at 1-1.

Rookie forward Krista Gommeringer (Calgary) got the game winner less than five minutes, 65th minute, later when she sent a pretty free kick around the Vikings defensive wall and into the top corner of the Western Washington net.

The third goal came in the 75th minute when Gommeringer beat the outside back and sent a ball to the far post where midfielder Jessica King (Liverpool) was waiting. King beat the WWU defender and got her foot on the ball to redirect it into the Vikings net.

TWU rookie keeper Christina Oliverio (Calgary) played the full ninety minutes in net for the Spartans.

The Spartans will close out their 2013 spring season Saturday afternoon when they will travel to Seattle to play Seattle Pacific. Match time against the Falcons is set for 1 p.m.
