Glenwood came back from a 1-0 deficit to defeat Tri-Center and complete its regular season with a 13-1 record.

The game, which featured just two officials instead of the usual three, was more physical than coach Brad Selvey expected but he thought his team dealt with that physicality pretty well.

“It was a much more physical game than we were anticipating,” said Selvey. “We really escaped with a win and really, without injuries. It was kind of a chippy game.”

The Trojans’ lone goal came via one of those physical plays, Selvey said, he thought could have been a foul.

“They got their goal on a breakaway, but I thought she pushed off but they didn’t call it and she scored,” said Selvey.

The Rams rebounded late in the half to knot the score at 1-1 on a penalty kick goal by Mallory Hoyt.

Hoyt added another penalty kick goal in the second half and Hope Foreman booted in a rebound to complete Glenwood scoring.

Selvey said his team possessed the ball 70 percent to the Trojans’ 30 percent and really never looked out of control even when trailing 1-0 early.

“We had a lot of opportunities, we just have to finish better,” said Selvey.
