EVERETT, WA – (submitted to goalWA.net) In her fist collegiate Soccer game for Trinity Lutheran College (Trinity,) 2015 Arlington High School Graduate, Breann Morren scored three goals to give her a “hat trick” performance in a 5-0 Trinity win over Mills College this past weekend in Oakland California.
“It is a rarity for a freshman to score hat trick in her first collegiate match and is an indication of what she will produce in the coming weeks. She is tenacious, tough and has a high work rate, she is relentless in front of the goal and always a danger when she has the ball.” said Trinity coach, Tim Colvin.
Scoring goals is nothing new for Morren as she is the reigning scoring record holder for Arlington High School and the Wesco Conference after her 25 goal season last spring.
Playing at the college level is a whole different experience from High School, but Morren is making the adjustment well.
“It’s a pretty big difference [here at Trinity] because at Arlington, I’ve played with the girls for almost 4 years or more and here I’m playing with a new team. Also practices are different and harder. During pre-season training was like I was at a football camp! It was hard on my body but I enjoyed it.
Morren and her Trinity teammates will now focus on their upcoming road matches against Linfield College and College of Idaho this weekend. Their next home game is September 7th, against the University of Great Falls. The game kicks off at 1pm at Lincoln Field in Everett.
Trinity Lutheran College Sweeps in California

The battle waged back and forth as both clubs looked for an opening. Finally, Trinity freshman Cassie La Brake scored the go ahead goal in the 89th minute, giving Trinity the win.
“Both wins were hard-fought, especially the second game. We are still figuring out each other’s strengths and weaknesses and how to play off of each other.” Said Smits after the match. “We fought till the end to get the win and I’m very proud of our determination. We deserved it.”
Trinity currently sits at 2-1 at the infant stages of the season. Their next two matches are on the road against Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon on September 3rd and College of Idaho on September 4th.
