Head coach John Antulov and his TRU WolfPack can breathe easier after picking up their first victory of the Canada West campaign on Sunday, Sept. 10, in Prince George.
Harry Taylor and Jonathan Rinaldi scored for the defending U Sports men's soccer champions in a 2-1 victory over the UNBC Timberwolves, with Elijah Dos Santos picking up an assist and goalkeeper Svyatik Artemenko earning the victory in his first start for TRU (1-5).
"Finally, we were able to put a full 90 minutes together both on the defensive side of the ball and offensively," WolfPack head coach John Antulov told TRU Sports Information. "I think it's a big relief for the guys to put a game together and, hopefully, we can build on this moving forward."
Michael Henman, the reigning Canada West men’s soccer player of the year, scored for the Timberwolves (1-4-1) in a losing effort.
UNBC knocked off the Pack 3-1 on Friday in Prince George.
Henman scored twice for the home team. Dylan Pauw had the lone goal for TRU.
The WolfPack are scheduled to play the Pronghorns (2-2-1) on Saturday, Sept. 16, in Lethbridge and the MacEwan Griffins (2-2) on Sunday, Sept. 17, in Edmonton.
