Spartans set to clash with Clan

Trinity Western faces SFU in BCIHL playoffs

The post-season begins tonight (Friday) for the Trinity Western Spartans men’s hockey team.

The Spartans play the Simon Fraser Clan in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League best-of-three semifinal series. The Clan were second and the Spartans third during the regular season.

TWU will host game two on Saturday (March 12) at the George Preston Recreation Centre. SFU hosts game one and — if necessary — game three on Sunday.

“We have a great opportunity in the week ahead,” said Spartans coach Barret Kropf.

“We’ll go to Simon Fraser and play the underdog role and see if we can work some magic and go from there. We’ll get some guys back for the playoffs, which will be key. I think we have lots to build on and we’re looking forward to the next 16 days.”

The Spartans lost 6-1 in the regular season finale to the Victoria Vikes last week (March 4).

They finished the regular season at 13-9-0-2.
