Double overtime match leads to loss for Trolls

The Trinity men's soccer team went to Chicago Heights, Illinois yesterday to take on the Governors State Jaguars. After a hard-fought battle in chilly weather conditions, the Jaguars came out on top, winning 0-1 in double overtime.

Once the first overtime period began, the Trolls tried to find the back of the net, working in two shots in 10 minutes. The game then went to a second overtime, where both teams were putting their own shots on goal.

But it was the Jaguars who were able to score first in the 109th minute, causing the Trolls to lose 0-1.

Junior Mathis Muller made eight saves on the night. Junior Andrew Heun was able to put up two shots with one on goal along with sophomore Manasse MbuyiSenior Tate Rozeveld also put a shot on goal.
