April 14, 2013, Seattle, WA (ISN) – The Trinity Western women’s soccer team capped its spring season with a 0-0 draw with on the road against Seattle Pacific Saturday afternoon.

The tie sees the reigning Canada West and CIS champion Spartans finish the spring season with a 3-2-2 record.

“Overall, we played an okay match,” said Spartans coach Graham Roxburgh. “It was a long spring for us and we looked a little tired this afternoon. So, given that, it was good to at least hold on for the draw.”

Midway through the first half TWU goalie Bailey Williams-Kapels (Puyallup, Wash.) made her best save of the afternoon as she stymied the Falcons to keep the match scoreless.

The Spartans best chance of the game came via Jenn Castillo (Surrey, B.C.), who had an opportunity from inside the box but just headed the ball wide.

Looking to break through later in the contest, TWU nearly scored when Alicia Tesan (Vancouver) played a brilliant ball to Isabella Di Trocchio (Burnaby, B.C.), but an impressive save from the SPU keeper denied the Spartans.

Over their eight-game spring season, the Spartans earned wins over UBC, Fraser Valley and Western Washington, while tying both Oregon State and SPU and losing to Victoria and the Vancouver Whitecaps U18 Elite.
