#9 Tiger Men's Soccer Defeats Johnson & Wales

San Antonio - The ninth-ranked Trinity men's soccer team scored a season-high in points in a 7-0 shutout Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference win over Johnson & Wales (CO) University on Sunday afternoon.



Austin Michaelis put the Tigers on the board in the 10th minute of action as Wesley Mitchell supplied the assist.

Trinity kept up the offensive pressure, but were unable to break through with another goal until the 34th minute when Mitchell added a goal of his own to make it a 2-0 game.

Brady Johnston gave the Tigers a three-goal cushion at the half with his goal in the 38th minute of action, assisted by fellow defender Roman Cano.

Just 75 seconds into the second half, Jacob Hallenberger provided an assist for Andrea Codispoti, then Quentin Van Der Lee added another Tiger score less than a minute later to make it a 5-0 game.

Duncan James knocked in a pair of late goals to finish off the Tiger scoring, beginning with a score in the 83rd minute on a nice cross from Connor Jones. Just over two minutes later, Diego Gonzalez lofted a free kick into the box, which was directed towards goal by Cal Cranfill, and then finished off by James to ensure a pair of assists on the score.



Trinity improved its overall record to 6-0-1, and remained undefeated in the SCAC with a 4-0-0 mark. The shutout was the fourth in the last five games for the Tigers, which dropped Johnson & Wales to 3-4-1 overall and 1-4-1 in conference.

Austin Michaelis scored his team-leading sixth goal of the season and the second game-winner. Michaelis has chalked up 37 career goals and stands in ninth place in Trinity's record books.

Andrea Codispoti and Brady Johnston moved into a tie with Ryan Hunter for second on the team with four goals this season.

Codispoti, Cano, and Jacob Hallenberger are tied for the team lead with three assists each.

Trinity outshot Johnson & Wales 50-5 overall, and 22-2 on goal.
