ANGOLA, Ind. - Emily Theisen scored the lone goal in the game in the opening 10 minutes of the match to give Adrian its first win in Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association play.

"Today was probably our first 90 minute performance where all aspects of the game were performed at a high level," said Head Coach Ali Alamdari. "Trine is organized and difficult to break down, but we kept them under pressure and limited their ability to counter.
