Trinity Women’s Soccer Tops Manhattanville Behind Two Thomas Goals

Hartford, Conn. – First-year Kelsey Thomas (Stonington, Conn.) scored her first two collegiate goals in the first half, and barely missed a hat trick in the second, leading the Trinity College Bantams to a 2-0 win over the Manhattanville College Valiants in women's soccer action this afternoon on Campus Field.  Trinity evens their season record at 1-1, while Manhattanville falls to 2-3 overall. 

Missed scoring chances by the Bantams did not come back to hurt, as Trinity applied pressure from the start and didn't let up, ripping off 18 shots to just one by the Valiants.  Trinity first-year goalkeeper Monica DeFiori (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) needed just the one save to notch her first college win – a shutout. 

Trinity had a 7-1 corner kick advantage in a balanced attack, recording nine shots in each half.  DeFiori's counterpart, first-year Grace Kraemer (Massapequa, N.Y.) made four saves in each half for the Valiants, including a strong block on a breakaway shot by sophomore Karyn Barrett (Cape Elizabeth, Maine).   

Trinity will host NESCAC rival Williams, ranked No. 8 in New England, on Sat. Sept. 15 at noon and visits league for Bates the next day at the same time.  There will be a live audio-only webcast of Saturday's game, through athletics.trincoll.edu.
