BURLINGTON – It was a wet, dreary weekend, but the Holy Trinity’s Lady Crusaders managed a split in the soggy conditions in the Burlington Rec Plex’s Adidas Tournament of Champions.

The event was held Friday and Saturday with evening matches canceled due to the inclement weather, but not before HTC put up an impressive 6-0 win over Queen of Peace out of Burbank, Ill.

Senior Avery Malinksi held the shutout with eight saves in the game. But an offensive juggernaut erupted after a sluggish Friday game where HTC only managed one goal in a 3-1 loss.

On Saturday, Sophomore Taylor Boeding and Senior Ali Randolph both had two goals. Randolph had three of the nine shots on goal for Holy Trinity.  Boeding had two goals nullified for offside calls. Elyse Pothitakis and Elle Rashid had the other two goals for HTC. Maya Rashid also had two shots on goal and three assists in the game. Sam Pothitakis and Randolph also added assists for the 5-2 Crusaders.

In Friday’s contest, Randolph had the lone goal in a 3-1 loss to Homewood-Flossmoor of Flossmoor, Ill., with an assist from Emily Box. Randolph and Maya Rashid had the only shots at the goal. Malinski was busy at the net knocking 17 shots away.

The girls are now off until May 6 when they host Notre Dame in a girls/boys varsity double header beginning at 10 a.m.
