The Manson Lady Trojans had their first real let off of the year as they fell to Bridgeport 5-0. The game started brightly when Jasmine Valdovinos had a quick shot saved down to the left of the goalkeeper. Shortly after that, Bridgeport scored a goal after a series of Manson mistakes then followed by a similar goal a few minutes later. The game was neither the worst the Lady Trojans have played nor against the best opposition but it was defined by early mistakes that doomed the game from the first half.
