DEERFIELD, Ill. The Cornell women's soccer team took to the road Saturday and dropped a 4-1 match to Trinity International. 

The Trojans (5-2) got on the board early, scoring their first goal of the match in the fifth minute of play. This would be the only goal scored in the first half by Trinity, despite 10 shot attempts. The home team's inability to score another first-period goal was due in large part to the efforts of Nell Rosenthal (SO/Wheaton, Ill.), who collected seven of her season-high 11 saves in the half. 

Cornell (0-4) played a much more competitive second period, nearly matching the Trojans in shots at eight to nine. Sofia Schnur (SO/Redwood City, Calif.) led her team in shots with five total, three of which were on goal.  She was followed by Renee West who took three shots of her own, two of which were on goal. 

Unfortunately, Trinity was able to score three more goals before the Rams were able to finally answer with one of their own. It was an Elizabeth to Elisabeth connection in the seventy-sixth minute as Elizabeth Mombello (JR/Overland Park, Kan.) passed the ball to Elisabeth Sage (JR/Denver, Iowa) who sent her only shot of the game to the back of Trinity's net.  Sage's score put the match at 4-1, which is where it would stay until time expired.           

Coming up – The Rams are at home playing Coe College in a Bremner Cup match, which takes place Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
