The Trojans came into the match with a 1-7 record compared to the Tide’s 8-1 record. Head Coach Josh Lauer said it was a test of who would fold first.

“I thought that our atmosphere tonight was great,” Lauer said. “Fans were fantastic tonight for an in-state rivalry match that was super fun. Two teams really getting after it.”
