New Haven, Conn. – The visiting Trinity College Bantams scored five second-half goals en route to a 6-1 victory over the Albertus Magnus Falcons in women's action this afternoon. The Falcons finish the regular season with an 11-5-2 overall record, while Trinity closes the year at 5-8-1 with its first win in six matches.
Trinity took a 1-0 lead into the half-time break as sophomore Maggie Crowe (Lowell, Mass.) scored her first career goal in the fourth minute of play.
