Trenkamp Nets #20, Privateers Fall to Old Westbury by 3-1 Score
THROGGS NECK, N.Y. (October 4, 2013) – Senior Jorrie Trenkamp (Tabernacle, N.J./Seneca) scored her 20th goal of the season, but the goal turned out to be the only tally of the night for Maritime, as the Privateers fell to the Old Westbury Panthers by the score of 3-1 on Friday evening.
With her 20th goal of the year, Trenkamp is now tied for the national lead in goals with Katie Vanden Avond of St. Norbert, who has scored three times this week to reach 20 as well.
The Panthers had the majority of control in the first half of the game and opened the period with several scoring chances. Maritime sophomore netminder Kristen Hoar (Buffalo, N.Y./Kenmore East) was up to the task as she picked up saves in the 12th minute as well as the 14th minute.
Old Westbury broke through in the 29th minute of play after a short cross into the box from near the right post. Jenna Donahue scored the opening goal of the game, for her second of the season, after the cross from JoAnna Kettell.
With the minutes winding down in the first half, the Panther found the back of the net for the second time of the night after breaking through the Maritime defense and got the ball between Hoar and the post to take the 2-0 lead.
After halftime, Old Westbury continued to outshoot the Privateers as they took the first three shots on goal in the half, but again Hoar was able to keep her team in the game.
In the 65th minute of the game, Trenkamp trimmed the lead in half after taking a pass from freshman Marisa Athan (Mineola, N.Y./Mineola) as the rookie was sliding to the ground. From the middle of the box, Trenkamp sank the ball into the net to make the score 2-1.
Donahue scored the insurance goal about 10 minutes later after picking up the rebound from the initial shot by Jasmine Kerby in the corner of the field to increase the Panther lead back to two.
With time working against Maritime, the Privateers struggled to get the ball past the stingy Old Westbury defense. The final horn sounded, and the Panthers came away with the 3-1 victory.
Taking the loss was Hoar, despite making double-digit saves for the third time this season. Earning the win was Caitlin Thomas, as she made just two saves on the night and allowing just the Trenkamp goal in the second half.
Maritime (8-5, 2-2 Skyline) will return to action on Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. when the York (N.Y.) Cardinals visit Reinhart Field for a non-conference matchup. Old Westbury (7-4, 3-1 Skyline) takes on the NYU Violets on Monday evening with the game to be played at Manhattan College.
