The Trojans faced off against the Treynor Cardinals on Monday, April 15 at home. At halftime, the girls were down 7-1, the one Trojan goal scored by sophomore Tatum Grubbs. At the end of the game, through some tough fighting and good passing, the team ultimately fell 11-1, and game was stopped due to the mercy rule.

On Monday, April 22, the girls played at home against the Collins-Maxwell Spartans, a team they have never played before. The JV team played first with a 20 minute half. The varsity team followed and played two 40 minute halves. The JV game ended with a score of 0-0. At halftime of the varsity game, the girls had a score of 1-0 with the Spartans in the lead. Four minutes into the second half, sophomore Tatum Grubbs had a shot that went into the net but was not counted as a goal. An intense second half let the Trojans score 2 goals. The first one was scored by Grubbs, and the second one by senior Alyssa Ginther off of a corner kick. The final score was 3-2, and the winner was the Spartans.

The team will play their next game on Tuesday, April 23 against St. Albert in Council Bluffs.
