“For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:6-8 NIV

Men’s Soccer Drops Final Conference Game and loses in CCAC Tournament
With the final conference standings on the line the Trolls needed a win in the game on October 25 against Cardinal Stritch University (WI) to remain in the top four of the standings. Going into the contest the team was one place ahead of the Wolves and gained an advantage when the game location was changed to their home field. None of that made a difference, however, as the Trolls lost the contest, 4-1. The No. 5 seeded Trolls and the No. 4 seeded Wolves of Cardinal Stritch University faced each other again on October 29 during the first round of the CCAC conference tournament. Although the Trolls put together a better game than the 4-1 loss in the regular season match-up, they lost the game 1-0. The team, 11-6-1, will now wait to play in the NCCAA regional tournament.
