A save by Trinity’s Jack McClellan in the last second gave the Trinity Shamrocks the 10-9 win over St. Rita (Il.) last night. It was a slow start for the Shamrocks giving up four goals in the first quarter. The second quarter was a different story, as the Rocks took control of face offs winning more than 65% and taking a 7-4 lead going into halftime.

At halftime, Coach Schroeder preached to the team to “take care of the ball on the clear and possess on offense to give the defense a break.”

In the second half, St. Rita fought their way back to bring it within one by scoring an impressive step-down rip from the right wing. Trinity answered with a goal of their own to make it 9-8. St. Rita again answered with a counter goal to tie things up at 9 all. Late into the fourth quarter, Trinity senior midfielder Noah Kessler came up with a ground ball and assisted Wilson Redman for the go-ahead goal. This would be the last goal of the game after a defensive stand by Trinity in the last 26 seconds. Jack McClellan, who made a handful of key saves throughout, made a save with 1.2 left on the clock to seal the deal. The sophomore standout Gavin Noland led Trinity with four goals and Jacob Rayome tallied a hat trick on the night. The Shamrocks are back in action at 10 am this Sunday as they will host Saint Louis University out of Missouri at home. .
