VICTORIA – The Trinity Western Spartans dropped at 3-2 decision (4-3PK) to the UBC Thunderbirds Saturday afternoon to open the Keg Cup tournament in Victoria. The loss puts the Spartans into the consolation final, while the win moves the T-birds to the championship match.
"Another learning experience today. Some guys got to play more minutes than what they are used to, which is good. We will continue to use these games as a good learning exercise," commented TWU head coach Mike Shearon. "Obviously disappointing that we did not get the win. We had a few chances in the end to get the victory. In fairness midway through the second half UBC had a bunch of chances as well. And in many ways the game could have ended 6-6. Not exactly what we wanted, but we will regroup and play in the consolation match tomorrow.
TWU plays UFV at 12 p.m. PT in the consolation match, while UBC will play host Victoria at 4 p.m. in the championship match.
