Women's Soccer Bounces Back With Win Over Virigina Wesleyan

Virginia Beach, Virginia - The fifth-ranked Trinity women's soccer team chalked up its first victory of the young season with a 2-1 win over Virginia Wesleyan University on Saturday.



Julia Camp got the scoring started in the game, netting her first goal of the season in the 26th minute of action to put Trinity ahead midway through the period.

Less than four minutes later, Colleen Markey knocked in an unassisted score to put the Tigers in control.

With less than 10 minutes left on the first-half clock, Virginia Wesleyan cut into the lead with a goal on a 35-yard free kick.

Trinity only managed 11 shots in the game, but still escaped with the win.  VWU had 16 shots total, but was limited to just six in the scoreless second half.  

Goalkeeper Kalli Douma recorded three of her four saves in the second half of the game, preserving the Trinity victory.



The Tigers are now 1-1-0 this season after falling in a 1-0 double-overtime game against Christopher Newport (VA) University last night.  

Julia Camp's goal was the 33rd of her career, which puts her in the top 20 in school history.  

Colleen Markey scored the fifth game-winning goal of her career, and the first of the season for Trinity.



Trinity makes its home debut Monday, hosting Sul Ross State (TX) University at 2:00 p.m.
