Thursday Oct 18, 2018 12:00am
The Trine University men's soccer team was held scoreless in a 2-0 decision against Adrian (Mich.) College in Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association action at Weaver Field in Angola, Ind.
Adrian (7-6, 4-1 MIAA) grabbed the early lead with a goal just 1:50 into the first half to make the score 1-0. Trine (10-3-1, 3-2 MIAA) picked up its game offensively following the Bulldog score and ended up outshooting its opponents, 8-4, in the period, but could not net a possible game-tying goal before the half expired, leaving the deficit at a goal at the break.
The second half saw Adrian add to its lead off of a free-kick opportunity that found the back of the net during the 53rd minute to increase the margin to 2-0. The extra goal created the breathing room the Bulldogs needed and secured the victory en route to the 2-0 final.
In goal for Trine, freshman Taylor Medina (Mill Creek, Ind./Rochester) played all 90 minutes and had one save.
The Thunder will host their final regular-season home game on Saturday, Oct. 20 against Hope (Mich.) College. The game is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. at Weaver Field.
