That number one on Sebastian Colyn’s jersey is looking pretty appropriate, after the Langley goalkeeper recorded another shutout for the Trinity Western Spartans men’s soccer team.
Spartans earned a 2-0 home victory over the UNBC Timberwolves Saturday at Chase Office Field, as Colyn made six saves to earn his Canada West-leading sixth clean sheet.
Noah Kroeker and Gordon Grice both scored for the Spartans who now sit third in the Pacific Division with a 7-4-1 record, behind UBC (6-1-2) and Victoria (7-3-1).
Kroeker got the Spartans on the board first in the 34th minute, after his shot just outside the Timberwolves box beat Goodey to the far left post to make it 1-0.
The Spartans then pushed their lead to 2-0 in the 45th minute, when Grice caught Goodey challenging out of the box, firing home a goal into the empty net from 25 yards out.

TWU finished the night with an 20-11 edge in shots and 12-6 edge in shots on goal.
TWU Head Coach Mike Shearon was happy with the win.
”I thought after the first goal we relaxed ourselves as a team, starting to play a little more instead of forcing things we were doing in the first half,” Shearon observed.
With the draw, the Spartans move to 8-5-2 all time against UNBC.
TWU is now 4-1-1 this year at Chase Office Field.
Next, the Spartans play host to the UFV Cascades on Friday (Oct. 11th) at Chase Office Field.
Kickoff for the match is 7:15 p.m.
