Trinity 2-0 in National Championship!
Twenty-five varsity soccer teams from 11 states gathered in Dayton Tennessee today to begin playing for a national title. Trinity is among those teams.
The National Association of Christian Athletes championship tournament got under way under leaden skies and a chilling drizzle throughout the day. The rain could not dampen the spirits of the Eagles or the fans that gathered to watch them. Trinity ended the day of soccer with two victories, shutting out both of their opponents in a 1-0 victory over a Jacksonvlle, North Carolina team and a 3-0 victory over a team from Newport News Virginia.
James Hayley scored the only goal in the first game with about 4 minutes left to play. The crowd went crazy, including cheers from another team who had gathered to watch the outcome of the suspense-filled game. James followed up his goal with a back-flip.
In the second game, Daniel Ledbetter was the leading scorer with a goal in both the first and second half. Adam Weissinger put the third ball in the net when the goallie made the fatal mistake of coming out of the box to take him on, one-on-one.
Trinity meets up with a Florida team tomorrow at 9:30 AM. Trinity goes into tomorrow’s games with 18 out of a possible 20 tournament points.
