Sardis grad Jackson Gardner backstops TRU WolfPack into soccer semi-final

The keeper will lead his team into a Canada West battle against Trinity Western this weekend.

Sardis secondary grad Jackson Gardner has backstopped his university soccer squad into the Canada West Final Four.

Jackson Gardner plays goal for Thompson Rivers University. He was in the cage last Saturday in Edmonton as his WolfPack upset the favoured Alberta Golden Bears in a Canada West quarter-final.

Gardner didn’t have a ton to do, stopping one official shot on goal.

But his latest game continued a run of strong play that’s seen him take over the number one role in the TRU net.

Gardner has started 10 of the last 11 WolfPack games.

In 810 minutes played over nine regular season appearances he yielded just 11 goals for a 1.22 goals-against average.

He recorded five wins, including two clean sheets.

Gardner’s team battles the Trinity Western Spartans in the first game of the Canada West final four this weekend, while the other semi-final matches the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.
