Thunder Bitten by the Bulldogs
ANGOLA, Ind. - It was a tough first 15 minutes for the Trine University women's soccer team as they allowed both of Adrian College's goals in their 2-0 loss. The Thunder are now 3-10-2 overall and 1-8-2 in the conference.
Ranked sixth in the Central Region by the NSCAA, the Bulldogs first goal came just five minutes into the game as Sam Barker chipped a shot over goalkeeper Jen Wall's (New Haven, Ind./New Haven) head. Just nine minutes later, an Adrian player was in the right spot at the right time as she caught a rebounded shot that hit off the cross bar and found the open net.
The Thunder defense stepped up big in the second half as they shut down the high-powered Adrian offense allowing just one shot on goal.
Wall finished the afternoon with three saves.
Adrian out-shot the Thunder 15-to-3, but all three of Trine's shots came on goal. Freshman Miranda Allen (Grass Lake, Mich./Grass Lake) attempted two shots, while junior Mary Lang (Kokomo, Ind./Kokomo) had the Thunders other shot attempt.
Trine will return to action on October 18 as they travel to Hope College for a 7:00 p.m. game.
