Second-period explosion leads to Spartans win

TWU hockey team wins, while track and field athletes find podium in Edmonton

Four second-period goals helped the Trinity Western Spartans win their second consecutive game by a 6-2 margin.

The Spartans scored four times in that 10-minute span to break open a 2-1 game against the Victoria Vikes last Friday at the Langley Events Centre.

The win improved TWU to 9-5-0-1 in B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League play.

PJ Buys and Dirk de Waal scored twice each and Brett Wur and Blair Murphy had the other goals. Mattias Schmitt and Ryan Bakken both had two assists.

In goal, Aaron Oakley stopped 31 shots.

The TWU track and field team was in Edmonton over the weekend at the Golden Bear Open with James Linde  and Hazel Ross winning gold medals.

Linde was tops in the long jump while Ross was golden in the high jump.

Linde also helped the Spartans 4×200 relay team — with Nathan George, Nick Ayin and Jamie Sinclair — win bronze.

George also medalled in the 300m, taking silver, while Cale Hernandez was second in the heptathlon.

And for the Spartans women’s team, Hazel Ross (long jump, 60m hurdles) and Sophie Pauls (pentathlon) took bronze in their respective events.

Home court could not solve the Trinity Western Spartan basketball woes as both the men’s and women’s teams lost to Calgary at the LEC.

The women fell 81-50 and 76-63 to fall to 3-9.

The men sit at 0-12 after losing 108-86 and 119-75.
