#4 Trinity Scores SCAC Victory Over #20 Colorado College

San Antonio - The fourth-ranked Trinity men's soccer team earned a 2-0 win over #20 Colorado College in a showdown of nationally-ranked Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference teams on Sunday afternoon.


Despite Colorado getting off more shots early in the game - including three shots on goal in the first 12 minutes - it was Trinity's first shot that proved to be the most effective.

Jacob Hallenberger took a cross from Daylon Gordon and buried the ball into the net to put Trinity up 1-0 in the 15th minute.

That score held through the first period, though Colorado ended up with a 14-5 advantage in shots over the first 45 minutes.

With the lead, Trinity was the aggressor in the second half, showing a 10-5 edge in shots taken to finish off the game.

In the 66th minute, one of those 10 shots came from Christian Sakshaug, who put Trinity up 2-0 on another Daylon Gordon assist.



Trinity upped its overall record to 6-1-0, and 2-1-0 in SCAC play. Colorado College dropped to 3-2-1 and 1-1-1 SCAC. The two teams will meet again October 8 at Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Jacob Hallenberger scored his fourth goal in Sunday's matchup, and produced a third game-winner in his early collegiate career.

Christian Sakshaug also chalked up his fourth goal of the campaign, and is tied with Hallenberger for the team lead.

Daylon Gordon's two assist bring him into a tie for the team lead with three assists this season.

Goalkeeper Blake Lieberman made four saves to post Trinity's fourth shutout of the season, bringing his season total to 22 saves.



The Tigers go on the road next weekend for two SCAC games, facing Texas Lutheran University on Friday, followed by a Sunday afternoon match against Southwestern (TX) University.
