In a chippy, whistle-filled slugfest of a match, the Chargers of Crestwood overcame a strong defensive effort by the Trojans to pull out the 1-0 victory in the waning moments. For 78 minutes, both teams left everything they had on the field. With 1:48 left in the match, Ali Bazzi found the back of the net off a nice run through the 6 to score the game-winner for the Chargers.
Jacob Weiss, Nick Snage, Brendan Mahoney, Dean Harrington, and Jesus Gonzalez played incredible lockdown defense for the majority of the game against the WWAC Champions. Unfortunately, the Trojans couldn’t overcome the onslaught from Crestwood and the incessant whistles from the center official. In the end, the Trojans showed very well in the Varsity opener at Shaw Stadium.
The Trojans (8-5-3, 4-2-1 WWAC) travel to Berkley tomorrow to play another powerhouse. Game time is 7:00.
