The Trojans fell behind in the first minute of the game, were outshot all night and lost 4-1 to Livonia Stevenson.
Stevenson got one past Trenton goalie Nick Ramirez just 42 seconds into Saturday’s game.
Trenton got it back about five minutes later when Andrew Sawyer scored during a 4-on-4 situation, but that was the end of the highlights for the home team.
Stevenson took the lead for good with 6:29 to play in the opening stanza.
Stevenson outshot Trenton 14-8 in the period and it only got worse from there.
The Spartan had 22 shots to Trenton’s eight in the second period and their two goals put the game out of reach.
The third Stevenson goal came just after a Livonia power play had expired. The fourth came on a long shot that seem to take all the air out of the Trenton team and crowd.
The Trojans played more evenly with their Livonia rivals in the third period – the shots were 8-8 – but Trenton could not find the back of the net.
With the win, Stevenson advanced to Tuesday night’s quarterfinals at U-M’s Yost Arena against Ann Arbor Pioneer, which was a 6-1 winner over Pinckney in its regional final.
Trenton finished the year with a 15-12-1 record.
