Trinity Baptist College women’s soccer was tied 1-1 with eight minutes left in the first half at Webber International University Saturday afternoon when the skies opened. Lightning made its return — some had struck earlier in the the half to force a delay — and caused an official cancellation.
With both teams battling wind and rain, Trinity’s Arisa Robles scored in Minute 17 to tie the score ten game minutes after Webber had made it 1-0 just before the first lightning delay. It was the only shot the Eagles had attempted, but their defense was also quite stingy. The Eagles’ defense held Webber to five total shots, four on goal. Courtney Blanset saved three.
With the cancellation, the numbers do not count, but the Eagles played impressively against the NAIA Sun Conference Warriors.
The Eagles will play two more on the road before beginning a three-game home stand. First, Trinity will travel to Florida College, who moved up to the NAIA this season, on October 10. Then, the Eagles will visit South Region opponent Bob Jones University on October 14. In fact, both the men and the ladies will make those two trips.
The Lady Eagles will then host Bob Jones (October 19), Florida National University (October 21), and Florida College (October 26) before ending the regular season at Florida National (October 28).
The NCCAA Division 2 Women’s South Region tournament will take place at Trinity from November 2-4.
