A Perfect Ten

The Trolls extend their winning streak to ten games and keep their record unblemished as they move to 10-0 for the season with a win at Judson University (Elgin, Illinois). In a conference game the team scored early in the first half to take a 1-0 half-time lead. They extended their lead with a goal midway through the second half and capped off the game with a late goal in the final 10 minutes for the 3-0 win. The victory was the seventh shut-out of the season for the Trolls.

Trinity dominated the first period with a steady attack of shots at the goal. In the 16th minute an attempt by Selah Hopkins found the net to give the Trolls the lead. That goal was assisted by Elly Brummel. While Trinity had 13 shots for the half and Judson did not have any, the score was 1-0 at the intermission.

The Trolls continued to play aggressively. It was not until the 65th minute that they got on the board again when Hopkins scored her second goal of the game. This time Paige Rogers had the assist.

The team played in the two goal lead until the 81st minute when Jessica Bianchi finished a pass from Taylor Miller to create the 3-0 final.

The Trolls ended the game with 26 shots and Judson had three. Allyson Kranstz finished with two saves.

The team is next in action on September 29 at home against the University of St. Francis at 12 pm.
