DEERFIELD, Ill. – Greenville College women’s soccer saw their 2011 season draw to a close on Saturday as Trinity International University knocked off the Panthers 1-0 in the NCCAA North Central Region Championship.

This lone goal proved to be the game winner and dealt GC the heartbreaking 1-0 defeat.
