TROTWOOD — Last season, the Troy girls soccer team had to settle for a 1-1 draw against a stubborn Trotwood team, which at the time was still a division rival.
Wednesday, the Trojans weren’t about to settle again.
Troy (4-1-1, 4-0 Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division) won its third straight Wednesday night, holding the Rams without a shot on goal and posting a score early in the second half to hang on for a 1-0 victory at Trotwood.
Kenzie Evans scored the game’s only goal, finishing off an assist from Ciena Miller to make the score 1-0 with 36:49 left in the game.
Arianna Garcia made one save in goal and she and Molly Miller combined to shut the Rams out.
