Trolls Take Cougars to Overtime

It was Senior Day for the men’s soccer team as they hosted Saint Xavier University (Chicago, Illinois) in a conference game. The Trolls battle hard with the Cougars and at the end of regulation the game was still scoreless.  The teams headed into overtime and six minutes into the extended play Saint Xavier got the goal that ended the game and handed the Trolls the 1-0 loss.

Throughout the first half of the game the teams fought hard, but the defense prevailed as each team was held to two shots and the game was scoreless.

Trinity and Saint Xavier continued to push in the second period to get the advantage. Late in the period the Trolls had some opportunities to break the deadlock, but could not get on the board. As the buzzer sounded the scoreboard showed the 0-0 draw.

In the 97th minute of the game the Cougars got the look they needed to find the net and end the game.

Overall Trinity ended with five shots and Saint Xavier had eight. Mathis Muller was in the goal with three saves.

The Trolls will play in their final game of the season on October 31 at home against St. Ambrose University at 2:30 pm.
