Wolves fall to Trinity 2-3
Brook Fesler continued his scorching goal scoring streak Friday, when Walla Walla University matched up against Trinity Lutheran College (Everett, WA).
The Wolves lost, 3-2, but it wasn’t a game that lacked any excitement. Fesler was ready to score when the match kicked off, knocking in a goal within the first minute off the assist from junior midfielder Alex Lemnah.
Following the early goal, the game grew more and more physical. Trinity Lutheran would draw a yellow card in the 20th minute before their goal keeper Christos Voglis was shown a red card for taking out Fesler on a dirty play outside the keeper’s box.
Right before the half, Trinity scored their first goal of the game (37 min) tying the score at 1-1, and would go on to take a 2-1 lead in the 54th minute. But the Wolves weren’t going to back down, as Fesler and Lemanh connected again, this time with Lemnah scoring the goal to tie the match at 2-2 in the 58th minute.
Several more penalties followed in the ensuing minutes including the lone yellow card against WWU. After that penalty Trinity was able to score the go-ahead goal (83 min). Following their goal, Trinity Lutheran had two more yellow cards called against them which directly resulted in red card ejections in the last five minutes. The Wolves were up three players, but just didn’t have enough time to score that tying goal.
The Wolves will return to action this Sunday (9/26) against the visiting Carrol College.
Following the game, Brook Fesler was hospitalized, most likely stemming from the earlier collision he was involved with. More details to come.
