Daisy Granholm had one goal in each half. Hannah Goodwin made nine saves for the Trojans.

Seniors Alahna Mild, Adrianna Novella, Saige Goodwin and Cassia Barnes were honored at the game.

Against Belfast last week, MDI scored three goals in the first half en route to a 4-0 victory. Despite the strong start, though, Coach May Dow said the team played even better in the second half after she told the team to step up its intensity and make better movements with the ball.

“I challenged them because I knew we could play better than they were, and collectively, the girls felt the same way,” Dow said. “Coming out for the second half of the game, we played with more intensity and made better movements.”

Against Foxcroft, Granholm scored MDI’s goal in the 6-1 loss. Hannah Goodwin had 18 saves for the Trojans.

The Trojans’ next game will be a preliminary playoff against a yet-to-be-determined opponent this weekend.
