TWU hockey: Spartans break into win column

Men's hockey team earns three out of four points

The Trinity Western Spartans picked up three of a possible four points over the weekend.

The Trinity Western Spartans were 33 seconds away from earning all four points over the weekend, but the Okanagan College scored the equalizer to force a 3-3 tie on Sunday at the Langley Events Centre.

The Spartans men’s hockey team did pick up their first win of the season on Saturday, 3-1 over the Selkirk College Saints, picking up three of a possible four points after an 0-5 start to the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.

Trinity Western was a little lucky to pick up the single point after getting outshot 52-32.

“Anytime you get doubled in shots, you’re going to get yourself in trouble,” said coach Dwayne Lowdermilk.

Goaltender Tim Zwiers was phenomenal in goal, delivering a 49-save performance.

The Spartans trailed 2-0 after one period after the Coyotes struck for a pair of goals from Chris Glen and Dave Mann 32 seconds apart.

But Trinity Western showed their quick-strike offence, getting goals from Scott Holmes and Jordan Magnuson 17 seconds apart in the middle period.

Trevor Beaupre gave the Spartans their first lead with 1:51 remaining after banging home a rebound.

Against Selkirk, captain Brad Bakken scored the game-winner in the third period.

Trinity Western led 1-0 after 40 minutes thanks to a second period goal from Brandon Long.

Long added an empty-net goal as well.

Zwiers finished with 24 saves.

The Spartans have a home game on Friday (Nov. 4) against the Victoria Vikes at the LEC.
