“But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.” Philippians 3:7-9 NIV

Women’s Soccer Wins Another, then Ties One With Cornerstone
The women’s soccer team made use of their rookies to get their fourth win on Friday, September 2, and maintained their perfect record. All four of the goals scored in this 4-1 victory over Northwestern College (IA) were made by freshmen. Their perfect record was threatened, however, in a game at Cornerstone University (MI) last Saturday, but the Trolls did not give up a win. They did not gain one either as they battled to a 2-2 double overtime tie. It was third game in four days for the Trolls who walk away with a 2-0-1 record for the week. They are 4-0-1 overall for the season, which is the best start the program has had.
Men’s Soccer Marks Two More Wins
For the second time this season, the men’s soccer team proved that it can score as they put up a 5-1 victory over Maranatha Baptist Bible College (WI) on Friday, September 2. This was the second win for the team last week and the third game of the season without a loss. The men’s team hosted Oakland City University (IN) on Saturday in what became a physical and aggressive game. Injuries and penalties became a part of the game that was pushed into overtime before the Trolls emerged as the victors. The 2-1 final gives the Trolls a 3-0-1 record for the season.
Cross Country Starts Season
The cross country runners got their first taste of competition this season as they ran in the 17th Annual Earlybird Invitational at Elmhurst College (IL). Only five Troll runners, two females and three males, participate in this early season meet.
