WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior forward Josh Trott (Glen Cove, N.Y.) has been named the Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week, for competition from August 21-27. Trott scored a pair of goals on Sunday to help lead the Holy Cross men's soccer team to a 3-1 victory at Quinnipiac in its season opener.
With the Crusaders and the Bobcats tied at 1-1 with less than 12 minutes remaining, Trott scored his first goal off a pass from junior forward Marsalis Beckford (Brantford, Ontario) to put Holy Cross in the lead for good. He added his second goal less than five minutes later to put the game out of reach, flipping the ball over the goalkeeper after a turnover at the top of the Quinnipiac penalty box.
Over the course of his career at Holy Cross, Trott has now totaled 20 goals and five assists for 45 points.
The Crusaders (1-0 overall) return to action on Saturday, September 2, when they plays host to Maine in a 7:00 p.m. game at Linda Johnson Smith Stadium.
