Daisy Haack had two assists while Olivia Langlois and Zielinski each added an assist.
The Trojans outshot the Eagles 22-1 in the game and improve to 1-0 on the season.
Coach McClain was happy with her team’s effort noting, “I thought we did a nice job of knocking off some of the rust and moving the ball around and finding feet. Anytime you can find the net early in the season is a good sign. It was a great team effort that we can build on.”
