Trine Men’s Soccer Stays Unbeaten With Win Against Adrian
Monday, October 12, 2020

ANGOLA, IN - The Trine University men's soccer team continued its winning ways this fall with a 3-0 shutout against Adrian (MI) College in non-conference action at Weaver Field.

Today's game marked the second matchup between the two teams this season. The Thunder defeated the Bulldogs, 4-1, in the first head-to-head contest in mid-September.

All three goals scored came in the first half and began with a marker off of a header by freshman Hamsah Saleh just 7:23 into the game. Sophomore Jared Cromwell was given the assist after setting up Saleh for the scoring attempt.

After scoring four goals in a win against Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in Trine's last game, junior Kaliel Alisaid continued his impressive offensive play with an unassisted goal during the 22nd minute that increased the advantage to 2-0.

Alisaid added another point to his afternoon total when he tallied an assist on Trine's final goal of the game that was scored by fellow junior Connor Malmquist at the 32:46 mark and sent the home team into the locker room with a three-goal lead.

Adrian (0-3) took six shots in the second half with three of shots being on net, but none found their mark as Trine freshman netminder Troy Saylor kept the Bulldogs scoreless to help the Thunder improve to 4-0 on the year.

Trine will wrap-up its fall portion of the schedule on Wednesday, Oct. 14 when it travels to Southfield, Mich. to take on Lawrence Tech. The game is set to start at 7 p.m.
