Experience goes a long way in big games. Of course, so does talent, effort, teamwork and strategy. The host Trenton Trojans had all that and more working on Saturday morning as they knocked off Carlson 4-0 in a soccer district final.

It was Trenton's fourth consecutive district championship.

"I know it means a lot to the seniors," said Trenton Coach Mike Hatfield. "How many players can say they won district championships all four years in high school?"

The Trenton seniors can now say exactly that as the dynasty keeps on rolling.

The Trojans advance to the regionals on Tuesday at Chelsea. Trenton will play Dexter.

Trenton used nice short passes, used the whole field and won many of the 50-50 balls to set the tone early in the game. And while they may have tired a little at the end, the game was dominated by the home team.

"I thought we played pretty well," Hatfield said. "We have played better this season but not with the intensity we showed today. Our intensity level was high right from the start. We really wanted it. We won most of the 50-50 balls and played really hard. I thought we also did some good things out there."

Trenton's defense, led by the likes of Kayla Czarnik, Madeline Olszewski, Brooke Teska and Alexia Moody, was solid all game. When the Marauders did break through and get a quality shot off, Trenton keeper Haley Osbourne was there to make the stop.

Carlson goalie Athena Grias stopped a point-blank shot off the foot of Meghan Mahoney at 29:45 of the first half as the Trojans started putting together quality scoring chances.

A minute later, Grias had no chance to stop a direct kick by Maddie Menna, who placed a perfect shot in the upper corner to give Trenton a 1-0 lead.

The Trojans just kept coming. A shot by Nadia Kurtzhals went just wide at the 28-minute mark. Trenton's Brooke Teska took a good shot a few minutes later that Grias made a nice save on to keep it a one-goal game.

After another nice save by Grias, Trenton made it 2-0 with a goal by Marla Cobetto with an assist from Grace Zimmerman at 19:04. Some nice passing by the Trojans set up the goal.

At 15:25, Zimmerman scored with another perfect shot to the upper corner to give Trenton a 3-0 lead.

Trenton continued to pile up scoring chances in the second half. Bethany Flores replaced Grias in goal and did a nice job coming up with some big saves.

Carlson's best scoring chance in the second half came after a nice cross by Chelsea Stefanic was headed just over the crossbar by Kristina Torres.

With 8:28 left in the game, Cobetto scored her second of the game for the 4-0 final.
