The Simon Fraser Clan men’s hockey team remains unbeaten on the season after thrashing the Trinity Western Spartans 8-1.

The Spartans kept the game close through 20 minutes, trailing 2-1, but the visiting Clan used a four-goal second period to take control in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League game on Friday at the Langley Events Centre.

The Clan outshot the Spartans 45-21 and improved to 13-0-3. Trinity Western fell to 3-9-3.

“Well, 21 shots isn’t going to beat a team like this,” commented coach Dwayne Lowdermilk.

“There were times when we had them hemmed in their own zone and making plays but then we would only get one shot and they would get two or three shots and finish their chances.

“They’re a strong club.”

Josh Gordon had the lone Spartans goal.

“When we skate, we can skate with anyone but we need to be able to drive the net at the right times and put the puck on the net at the right times but in the end, we got outshot 45-21 and that’s indicative of the score,” Lowdermilk said.

Trinity Western hosts a pair of games at the LEC, Friday against the Selkirk Saints and Saturday versus the Okanagan Coyotes.
