TWU women headed to finals Sunday

After beating U of A, the Langley soccer women will play UBC in the Keg Cup final in Victoria.

The Trinity Western Spartans women’s soccer team opened the University of Victoria Keg Cup with a 2-0 victory over the University of Alberta Pandas Saturday afternoon in Victoria.

The win pits the Spartans against the UBC Thunderbirds in the Keg Cup final Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. in Victoria.

The Spartans claimed the win by capitalizing on an Alberta own-goal as well as a tally from midfielder Jenna Di Nunzio.

“We were really good in the first half and were able to create a lot of opportunities, but were not as dangerous in the attacking third as we needed to be after creating some good possession,” commented TWU head coach Graham Roxburgh.

“But in the second half we got momentum and were able to come away with a comfortable win.”

The Spartans Christina Oliverio played the full 90 in goal to earn the shutout win for TWU.

The Victoria Vikes and the Alberta Pandas will play in the third place game at 10 a.m.

Match Notes: Defender Jennifer Castillo saved a goal for the Spartans when she blocked a point blank shot and cleared it off the line.

UBC earned their way to the final with a 1-0 win over Victoria.
