On a cold, frigid night, the Trenton girls’ soccer team played defense that was just as stifling as the weather.

The Trojans held Anderson to just one shot on goal in the game, and did enough on the offensive end to come away with the 2-0 win on Wednesday night.

Trenton Coach Mike Hatfield said he was pleased with his team’s performance, particularly their constant possession of the ball.

“We’ve really been focusing on patterns and movement,” Hatfield said, of his team’s offensive game plan. “Organization, speed of play and trying to keep the ball on the ground as much as we can are big for us. And that takes a long time. I thought we beat a good opponent.”

Despite the one-shot effort, Anderson Coach Larry Lankford said he thought his offense had decent scoring opportunities.

“Trenton’s well coached, they’re disciplined,” he said. “I think we played well with them, we just had trouble making that last pass. We had five or six opportunities, we just couldn’t finish.”

Nadia Kurtzhals scored both of Trenton’s goals on the night - one in each half.

Hatfield said he thought it was Kurtzhal’s best performance of the young season.

“Her speed and her timing were there,” Hatfield said. “The one ball she did hit was a good, clean hit; she came and got it off our forward’s foot.

“The second one was a great service off a corner kick, and then she hit the post earlier. So her timing was on and her pace of attack was on. It was great to see.”

Trenton will head into spring break with a record of 4-4-2. Carlson awaits them on April 30.

The Titans are now 7-4 overall (3-2 in the Downriver League). They will take on Truman, Kennedy and then Lincoln Park after the break.
