T-Birds shutout Clan again to win two-game series

65

VANCOUVER – The UBC Thunderbirds men’s soccer team shut out the Simon Fraser Clan 2-0 on Saturday in Burnaby, B.C., to win the two-leg series by an aggregate score of 3-0.
 
On Saturday, forward Han Sol Kim (Seoul, South Korea) notched goals for UBC, while goalkeeper Luke O’Shea (Richmond, B.C.) earned the shutout.
 
“We are happy to get a solid showing and result and against a good SFU team,” said UBC head coach Mike Mosher.  “I thought we had some good gritty and battling performances today, in particular I thought Jules Chopin did a lot of running and hard work in central midfield. As well, really nice to see Han Sol get two goals and continue to make positive strides forward as we look to improve and prepare the group towards next fall.”
 
The Thunderbirds came into Saturday’s game with a one-goal lead in the two-game total-goal series, after a 1-0 triumph over the Clan at Thunderbird Stadium on March 10.
 
Since the two teams resumed their rivalry in 2013, UBC has won all four meetings by a combined score of 9-0.
