The No. 19 Women of Troy prepped for the Orange County Winter Invitational by defeat Stetson 21-2 on Saturday. USC won their season opener for the first time in the four year history of the program.
Junior attacker Michaela Michael powered the Trojan offense with seven points and had six goals; all in the first half. Michael also produced 12 draw controls and caused one turnover in the game. The USC defense was relentless as it stifled the Hatter attack to allow just four shots all game. The Trojans held Stetson to a 4-for-16 ratio on clear attempts and forced the Hatters to turn the ball over 18 times.The game recap, box score, and highlights can be found at http://www.usctrojans.com/
Next up for USC is No. 5 Duke in the OCWI on February 20 at Orange Coast College. Game time is 7:00 pm. Tickets are still available.
