Close match ends with 2-1 win for Trolls

The Trinity women's soccer team competed in the final match of their Kentucky road trip as they faced Georgetown College. Although the match was close, the Trolls ultimately came out on top.

During the first half of the match, the Trolls were in control. They put seven shots on goal, and sophomore Selah Hopkins was able to slip one past the goalie in the 12th minute, making the score 1-0 at the half.

Once the second half began, the Trolls found more offensive opportunities. The team registered 10 shots during those 45 minutes, but it was Hopkins who again found the back of the next in the 49th minute, making the score 2-0.

The Tigers attempted to make a comeback following Hopkins' second goal, but their effort fell short. Libby Miller scored a goal for Georgetown in the 81st minute, but the Tigers were not able to come up with another goal, leading to a 2-1 win for the Trolls.

Along with Hopkins two goals and four shots on goal, senior Taylor Miller got three shots on goal while junior Easton Armstrong put two shots on goal.

On the defensive end, junior Ally Kranstz only allowed one goal and also made a save during the first half. The rest of the defensive line for the Trolls helped keep the ball away from the net and prevented the Tigers from getting any scoring opportunities.

Trinity will be back in action again this week as they host Northwestern (Iowa) at 4 p.m. on Sept. 5 at the Schaaf Athletics Complex.
