The Roos traveled to Trinity last Friday to open up district. The Roos gave up a goal 3 minutes into the game, but did not surrender another goal the first half. At the beginning of the second half, Kenny Kienle slid the ball in the right corner on a breakaway to tie up the game 1-1.

10 minutes later the Roos responded with another goal that was called back. With 15 minutes in the game the Roos gave up the lead for good off a free kick. The Roos played tough for 80 minutes. Final score was Trinity 3-1 Roos.
