Squires Leads Bulldogs to MIAA Win Over Thunder

ADRIAN, Mich. – The Adrian College men's soccer team took down the Trine University Thunder in an MIAA matchup on Tuesday evening. Senior Brad Squires posted three points, which included the game-winning goal.

 

THE BASICS

Final Score: Adrian 3, Trine 1

Location: Adrian, Mich. (Docking Stadium - Adrian College)

Records: Adrian 10-5-1 (2-2-1 MIAA), Trine 5-8-0 (1-4-0 MIAA)

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

It took less than four minutes for the Bulldogs to take control of the contest, posting their first tally of the game at 3:32. Squires sent a shot onto goal, which was deflected by the Thunder goalkeeper, with the rebound cleaned up by Logan Thomas. This is Thomas' first-collegiate goal.

Adrian extended its lead to two, with a goal by Squires 15 minutes later. The goal was the result of Brendan Koziol sending a pass from the left side of the box, drawing the goalie, to Squires who put it on a nearly-empty goal.

Thomas looked to pen his name onto the stat sheet once again, putting a strong shot on-goal, as he gathered a rogue ball in front of the goal, putting a quick rip on-goal, where the goalie was able to make the save by dropping to his knees.

Trine put the notions of a shutout to bed, as it put a shot on-goal in the 72nd minute, which was stopped by Spencer Brown, but almost immediately put into the back of the goal to make it a one tally game, 2-1.

AC posted the final goal of the game with 11 minutes remaining on the clock, as Garrett Miller was able to take the ball from a goalkeeper way out of the zone, and send it unto an unguarded net.

Brown spent all 90 minutes in goal for the Bulldogs, making two stops.
