Johnson & Wales wrapped up their first season in the SCAC on Sunday when they hosted #17 Trinity University at Aurora Sports Park.
The Tigers scored the opening goal in the first minute as Chelse Cole sent a cross in to Camry Beall who shot it up the middle from 10 yards out just 58 seconds into the game. Katelyn Peters (Brighton, Colo.) got the stop on an attempt by TU's Halleanne Dure in the 7th minute. In the 12th minute, Molly Sharples (Henderson, Nev.) made a save defensively for Johnson & Wales to keep it a one goal game. The visiting Tigers continued to pressure Johnson & Wales but the Wildcat's defense held them off to trail 1-0 at the break.
Peters got the second half going for Johnson & Wales with three big saves in the opening five minutes as Trinity looked to get an early goal. Trinity doubled their lead in the 67th minute as Kaity Ward dribbled the ball up the sideline and beat Peters in a 1 v 1 situation. The Wildcat's defense kept their composure after the second goal and worked together to shut down the Tiger's opportunities. Ultimately the Tigers were able to walk away with the 2-0 victory.
Peters finished with eight saves for Johnson & Wales who close out the 2018 season with a 6-8-1 record and went 5-7-1 in their first year in the SCAC.
