HAMDEN, Conn. - Senior forward Josh Trott (Glen Cove, N.Y.) scored a pair of goals to lead the Holy Cross men's soccer team to a 3-1 victory over Quinnipiac in Hamden, Conn. With his performance, Trott has now scored 20 goals over the course of his career with the Crusaders. Holy Cross opens the season with a 1-0 record, while the Bobcats fall to 0-2 overall.
