Trinity advance to first National Championship

See also

Trinity qualified for their first ever national championship game as they managed a 2-1 win over Middlebury on Friday afternoon at Toyota Field.

The Tigers started the match well, seeing plenty of possession, but they struggled to really put the chances that came to them away.

That all ended in the 19th minute when Trinity opened the scoring with Emily Jorgens equalling the NCAA Division III season assists record as she found Michelle Lainer for the opening goal and assist number 30 for the year.

That forced Middlebury to go for the match and as they saw more of the ball, the Tigers started to try and push back to deny any chance of an equalizer.

Unfortunately for the Tigers that goal did come, in the 34th minute, Hannah Robinson and Adrianna Gildner linked up well to find Scarlett Kirk who was able to score a solid equalizer.

Trinity really looked to dominate the midfield battle for the final ten minutes of the half but they just couldn't get enough chances as the half ended level at one.

It didn't take long in the second half for Trinity to restore their lead as Kelsey Falcone was able to square the ball for Hannah Hommel who hit the game winner just six minutes in to the second half.

Such has been Trinity's goal scoring all year they weren't content to just sit back and let Middlebury come but they kept looking to attack but just couldn't find another opportunity.

Middlebury pushed in the second half but Trinity always looked to have the match under control and held on for a memorable 2-1 victory.
