Always close, but trailing or tied for most of the game, the Lady Trojans won a tough Division contest against an excellent Cougars squad, Friday night. Jordan Tilton moved from attack to midfield to help slowdown QO’s potent offense freeing up Sophie Couturier and Graysen Jahangiri to dodge the Trojan offense into gear. That offense was lead by attackers Sam Martinez and Emma Thompson, each scoring 3 goals.
The defense of Carolina Marin, Sydney Braun, Sarah Elberry, Meghan Subt, Allie Harwood, Laura Prada, and Maya Hopkins, in front of goalie Alex Lam (3 key saves in the final 4 minutes) stymied QO’s excellent attack.
After scoring to take the lead with about 2 minutes left in the game and facing a furious barrage by QO, a harried Sophie Couturier ran the clock out – what a difference a week or so makes. 🙂
