Two-goal flurry lifts Tremper over Indian Trail

8

Facing a halftime deficit, the Tremper girls soccer team scored twice in a 39-second span midway through the second half in a 2-1 Southeast Conference victory over Indian Trail on Tuesday night at chilly Ameche Field.

The Trojans improved to 2-0 in the SEC (5-4 overall).

“The girls were very positive at halftime,” Tremper coach Todd Hardy said. “In the second half, we made a positional adjustment which allowed us to put even more pressure on them and we were able to break through with back-to-back goals. After that, we played with good soccer IQ and were able to hold possession in our half that last five minutes without giving them any offensive opportunities.”
