Road trip nets two points

Trinity Western women's soccer team managed a pair of ties over the weekend in Saskatoon, Regina

The Trinity Western Spartans managed a pair of draws on the road over the weekend in Saskatchewan.

The Spartans played to a 1-1 tie on Saturday in Saskatoon against the Saskatchewan Huskies and followed that up with a scoreless draw on Sunday in Regina against the Cougars.

The results leave Trinity Western with a record of 1-1-3 in Canada West women’s soccer.

And while the team may not have gotten a victory, head coach Graham Roxburgh was pleased with his team’s effort in the second game. The same could not be said after the first game.

“Until my team decides they are going to play with a sense of fight and urgency, were are going to have games like today,” he said. “Credit to Saskatchewan, they were the more aggressive team today.”

Roxburgh said the team was unlucky not to score on Sunday.

“We could have had a number in the first half and their keeper made a couple of nice saves,” he said.

“(But) in the end, we were not able to generate enough and we lacked a little clinical edge in the finish.”

Keeper Rachel Bedek was credited with three saves against Regina. She also made four saves in the 1-1 draw against Saskatchewan.

The Spartans opened the scoring in the 55th minute when Natalie Boyd struck on a free kick from just outside the box, with her shot clearing the wall of defenders and sailed into the top corner of the net.

But five minutes later, Erica Parenteau responded on a free kick for Saskatchewan.
