Game Recap
The Trojans, looking for their first win of the season coming off a loss to the Columbus North Bulldogs, met the other Columbus team, Columbus East Olympians @ East. The Trojans met a team that closely resembled itself – a team with veteran leadership and young talent. From the time the whistle blew, the Trojans came out to prove their worth. With midfield leadership from Grant Williams, Joe Brush, Tryston Zeiser, Mason Volker, Dillon Bergman and Jacob Bittner, the Trojans started connecting passes through the midfield and to the top. That is when forward Sam Burns found the first of his two goals. Only about 3 minutes and 30 seconds into the game, Sam Burns took the pass from Jacob Bittner and hit a rocket from just a top the 18 and it found the back corner of the netting. The Olympians pressed the Trojan’s goal and started playing through the midfield themselves, but the back line held strong with goalie Jacob Zengerling directing traffic. The start of the second half saw the Olympians pressing hard and fast to try and find the equalizer. A free kick was given to the Olympians just above the Trojan’s 18 but the wall stepped out on the pass and started the quick counter-attack on the Olympians. That is when sophomore Joe Brush found forward Sam Burns on his run to goal. Sam cut the ball inside away from the defender and flicked the ball over the charging keeper to put in his second goal of the night with about 18 minutes left. The Trojan defense then held on to give them a clean sheet for the game. This was a quality win over a quality opponent for the Trojans. The Columbus teams always are well coached and always provide quality matches.
