Trinity Enters Final Four

Trinity boys varsity soccer will play at 3:10 CST to try to advance into the championship round in the National Association of Christian Athletes national soccer tournament.

Yesterday the Trinity Christian School boys soccer team put their 23-0 record on the line in the  Tournament in Dayton, Tennessee.  The Eagles won their opening game of pool play on Tuesday morning against Fresta Valley Christian School of Marshall, Virginia, by the score of 3-1.  Matt King booted the first score for Trinity, followed by a pair of goals by William Patton.  Ricky Hayley and King dished out assists for the Eagles.  In their second game, Trinity faced Grace Academy of Matthews, North Carolina.  A very tough defensive battle on Tuesday afternoon ended deadlocked in a 0-0 tie between the Eagles and Lions.

Trinity advanced to play in Division 1 which pits the top eight teams of the tournament against each other this morning at 11:30 CST. The game was against the Calvary Christian School Eagles out of Maryland and resulted in another 0-0 tie at the end of regulation play. The game went into two 5-minute overtimes which also saw neither team score. Finally the two teams fought it out with penalty kicks and Trinity emerged victorious by a score of 5-3. Calvary’s goallie was unable to defend against kicks by William Patton, DJ Johnson, Sam Schuessler, Ricky Hayley, and Winston Durbin who all booted goals in the shootout. Meanwhile, Trevvor Vordenbaum kept out 2 of the 5 attempts by the Calvary team.

This victory puts Trinity playing against Grace Christian School out of Matthews North Carolina this afternoon. (A different Grace than yesterday afternoon).
