Hartford, Conn. — The Trinity College Women’s soccer program dropped its second straight NESCAC contest, falling to #13 Tufts 3-0 Saturday afternoon. The Bantams (2-5-1) allowed two goals in the first half, with the Jumbos (7-1-1) peppering 18 shots on goal.
The hosts struck first just eight minutes into the first half. Senior Jenna Troccoli (Bethesda, Md.) buried her first goal of the season on an assist from junior Hannah Isenhart (Boulder, Colo.) to make it 1-0. After doubling its lead 12 minutes later on junior Liz Reed’s (Lynnfield, Mass.) seventh goal of the season, the Bantams locked down defensively for the remainder of the half. Tufts added the game’s final goal in the 59th minute seeing Troccoli find the back of the net for the second time.
Trinity lost in the shot column 26-3, and didn’t take a single corner kick. Sophomore goalkeeper Jennifer Stuart (Newburyport, Mass.) played exceptionally well between the pipes for the Bantams, giving up three goals but making a career-high 15 saves in the setback.
The Bantams will round out its weekend road trip Sunday, traveling to Bates for a 12 p.m. kick-off.
