How It Happened

First Half

  • Austin Porter, the Trojan goalkeeper, spotted up and came up with a clutch save to keep the Saints off the boards and the score nil-nil.
  • Limestone just over five minutes later was finally able to find a small enough hole in the Trojan defensive back line and the game's first and only goal was scored in the 38th minute.

Second Half

  • The Trojans continued to try and make a comeback in the second half and were able to put two shots on frame but could not find the equalizer.
