Two games into the preseason, the Trojans own a 1-1 record against two tough 5A schools, Box Elder and Bonneville.  Morgan opened their season with a 1-0 extra time win over the Box Elder Bees at home on Thursday, August 2, 2023, and they fell to the Bonneville Lakers 2-1 in Ogden on Monday, August 7, 2023.

Morgan’s win over Box Elder in their first game set a great tone for the preseason.  Against a relentless team, Morgan fought the entire game to end tied 0-0. In extra time freshman Lily Evans scored the winning goal on an assist by Amy Thomas. Senior goal keepers Miya Turner and Madi Wangsgard shared the shut out.

“It was a very exciting game,” Assistant Coach Jesse Henderson commented.

In their second game against Bonneville, both teams scored in the first half and held each other scoreless in the second.  Two goals by the Lakers bested the Trojans' single strike. Morgan’s goal was scored by senior Kaydence Wardell with sophomore Lacie Poll recording the assist.  

Morgan played at Bear River Tuesday, August 8 and hosted Rowland Hall as they continued their bruising pre-season schedule against some of the top teams in the state. Plan for upcoming home matches against Judge Memorial on August 15 and Ogden August 29. Varsity games begin at 3:30 p.m.λ
