Trolls Lose to Cougars

The Trolls are still looking for the first conference win as they could not find one in a home double-header with Saint Xavier University (Chicago, Illinois). In the opening game Trinity scored in the first inning, but did not get on the scoreboard again and ended with a 5-1 loss.  The Trolls scored in the later innings of game two, but it was not enough to overcome the Cougars and they fell 5-2. The team is now 6-12 for the season and 0-8 in the CCAC.

Trinity’s one run in the first game came on a solo homer by Chole McRobbie in the 1st inning. The run made it 3-1 after the 1st. Saint Xavier added one run in each the 2nd and 4th inning for a 5-1 lead. The Trolls had bases loaded in the 4th inning and a runner in scoring position in the 5th inning, but did not get the runs in.

For the game Trinity had eight hits and Saint Xavier had 11. Jamie Budreau, Jenna Steinkamp, and Mercedes Munoz each had two hits. Steinkamp was on the mound for the loss.

In the second game Saint Xavier scored twice in the 3rd inning to take the lead. The Trolls got one back in the 4th inning to close the gap. That pattern was repeated over the next two innings to make it a 4-2 game after the sixth. The Cougars opened the 7th inning with a home run to score their final run. Trinity could not keep the game alive in the bottom half and ended in the 5-2 final.

The Trolls had 11 hits for the game and the Cougars had nine. Budreau, Katelyn Sena, and Katie Shoulta had two hits each. Dara Megyesi got the loss with a complete game pitched.

Trinity plays next on April 4 at home against Robert Morris University at 3 pm in a double-header. (These games were originally scheduled for April 5, but have been moved ahead one day.)
