New Trier exacted a measure of revenge on Glenbrook South in a rematch of last season’s supersectional at Fremd on Tuesday.

Junior forward Maddie Mulford scored two goals in the first half and the Trevians held off a late charge by the Titans to earn the 2-1 win.

Impressively, the Trevians (4-0-1, 2-0) are winning without two starters and with several girls playing new positions. Senior midfielder and DePaul-bound Jess Weaver is out for the season with a torn ACL in her left knee and junior defender Molly Cahill is out with a broken foot. Cahill is expected to return this season.

“[Tuesday’s] game was a test,” said New Trier coach John Burnside, who only has three starters from last season playing their natural position this spring.

By most accounts, New Trier passed.

Junior Tricia Lybrook, who’s playing midfield for the first time for the Trevians, had both assists on Mulford’s goals.

“She’s great,” Lybrook said. “If I get the ball through, I know she will get to it. She’s everything you can ask for in a forward.”

New Trier freshman goalkeeper Dani Kaufman and the defense did their jobs on the other end.

Glenbrook South (2-2, 0-1) finally broke the shutout in the 33rd minute of the second half on senior forward April Cronin’s goal. Several other attempts in the second half were turned back by Kaufman. New Trier has allowed only two goals in five games.

“It definitely was hard to get past that,” Lybrook said of Weaver’s season-ending injury. “But a lot of people are stepping up and being leaders.”
