6

An early goal less than four minutes into the match was all the Tremper soccer team needed in a 1-0 non-conference victory over Badger on Thursday night at Ameche Field.

The Trojans (6-4) found the back of the net at the 3 minutes, 45 second mark when Amber Garcia carried the ball down the left sideline. Her shot was deflected by Badger keeper Erin Utesch to an onrushing Janelle Caira, who scored what turned out to be the game winner.

“We had numerous opportunities, but just couldn’t put the ball in the goal,” said Tremper coach Todd Hardy, whose team finished with 18 shots. “We passed the ball OK, made some nice runs, but just couldn’t find the finisher.”
