TWU hockey team returns empty-handed from road trip

Spartans drop pair to Victoria Vikes as BCIHL season resumes

The Trinity Western Spartans dropped a pair of road games to the Victoria Vikes.

The Spartans hockey lost 5-4 and 6-4 at the Ian Stewart Complex as the team resumed the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.

“It was one of those weekends where we just didn’t seem (to) find our rhythm for a sustained period,” said Spartans coach Barret Kropf. “We’d play four or five good shifts and then we’d make one mistake and it’d be in the back of the net. Other teams are finding ways to capitalize and make the most of their turnovers and we’re not able to.”

Brett Wur, Mathew Bissett, Mattias Schmitt and Ryan Scott scored in Saturday’s loss while Josiah Cockrill, Florian Niedermaeir, Dirk de Waal and Cody Stephenson tallied in Friday’s loss.

“We’re just going to have to lick our wounds, sleep on it and get ready for next weekend,” Kropf said.

“Full credit to Victoria for the points they earned this weekend. It’s rough coming home without any points, but I’d rather be on this mini tailspin now than later in the season. We have lots of room ahead of us, but we have lots of work to do to get the ship straightened.”

The Spartans are in Burnaby this weekend for the BCIHL University Showcase.
