Spartans dominate

Trinity Western women's soccer team scores eight times to push unbeaten streak to five games

The Trinity Western Spartans offence kicked into high gear, scoring a combined eight goals as they pushed their unbeaten streak to five games.

The Spartans women’s soccer team hammered the Winnipeg Wesmen 5-0 on Friday night and then knocked off the Manitoba Bisons 3-0 on Saturday. Both games were played at Rogers Field on the TWU campus.

Rachel Bedek and Bailey Williams-Kaples split the goalkeeping duties the first night and Bedek played all of Saturday’s victory.

The team has not allowed a goal in 390 minutes.

“I thought that we defended in a way that never gave them a chance to threaten us,” said Spartans coach Graham Roxburgh.

“But we have to be a little sharper in our finishing because I think we could have scored three or four more goals if we had put away our chances.”

The Spartans got a first half goal from Krista Gommeringer while Sarah Hannigan and Alessandra Oliverio scored in the second half.

The first and the last goals came off penalty kicks.

The Spartans dominated the Bisons, outshooting them 20-1, including 8-0 with shots on target.

Against Winnipeg, Vanessa Kovacs, Jessica King and Alicia Tesan scored in the first half while Gommeringer and King, with her second, tallied in the second half.

The shots were again one-sided with Trinity Western firing 38 at the Winnipeg net with 18 shots on target. The Wesmen did not attempt a single shot.

The Spartans improved to 4-1-3 and they sit sixth in the Canada West standings.
