TWU soccer: Goals hard to come by for Spartans

Trinity Western women's soccer team goalless in two spring contests

For the second time in as many games, the Trinity Western women’s soccer team played to a 0-0 draw as neither the Spartans nor the visiting UBC Thunderbirds could find the back of the net Friday evening at Rogers Park.

After playing their way to a 0-0 tie with Fraser Valley on March 13, the Spartans dressed a largely substitute squad against a rather veteran bunch from UBC and managed to keep up with a tough Thunderbirds side and snag and deserved draw.

Trinity Western is now 0-0-2 against university competition this spring.

In what was a classically spring contest, neither team looked entirely in form and in the end a scoreless match was a fair result for a game that largely was void of scoring opportunities.

“It was a scrappy. We struggled early on and I thought UBC had a bit more of the energy and a bit more of the composure,” said Spartans coach Graham Roxburgh. “But we knew that would happen. We had a lot of young players playing and it’s different when they have fifth years on the park who are a little bit more accomplished and have been at this level before. I’m quite pleased how some of our young kids actually did quite well against a very mature team.”
