The Trojans took a trip down to the state tournament for the first time since winning it back in 2009. Every soccer player will remember Halloween 2014 as TC beat Harvard, a solid team located near the Illinois/Wisconsin border, in a penalty kick shootout! The score was tied 1-1 after 100 minutes of play, sending the game into a penalty kick shootout for the second game in a row. With a trip to the state championship game on the line, 10 TC players stepped up and finished their penalty kick into the back of the net! Harvard converted their first 9 penalty kicks, however, on their 10th attempt Jr. GK Ben Lodewyk fully extended to his right to make the game winning save to send the Trojans to the state championship game!
-On a side note, I am working on setting up a soccer banquet for sometime next week (week of Nov. 9-15). I will let everyone know as soon as the date is set. Too many thanks are in order and I will save most of them for the banquet. For now, please know how thankful I am for all of your support and encouragement, it's been a great first year!
