Trine's Davis Makes Season-High 15 Saves in Loss
ANGOLA, Ind. - The Trine University women's soccer team battled the elements along with visiting Adrian College, but came up short against the Bulldogs 2-0. The Thunder drop to 1-5-2 on the season and 0-3-1 in the MIAA.

The Bulldogs would add an insurance goal in the 65th minute after the two teams returned from the weather delay as Ellery Karsten put her shot over the left shoulder of Trine goalie freshman Sloan Davis (Olivet, Mich./Olivet).
Davis finished the afternoon with a season-high 15 saves in net. It was the most by a Trine goalie since Kate Wegert recorded 16 saves on September 25, 2010 at Indiana Tech.
