St. Ambrose recovered from a one-goal deficit in the third minute to post a 2-1 win at Trinity International in the CCAC opener for both teams Wednesday afternoon in Deerfield, Ill.

It took the Trojans just 2:41 to take a 1-0 lead. That lead lasted most of the first half.

Finally, in the 39th minute, Katie Reitz scored the equalizer. Her second goal of the season evened the match at 1-1 at the half.

After outshooting Trinity International 10-2 in the first half, St. Ambrose was rewarded 20 minutes into the second. Allie Mitchell connected with Morgan Wahlen for a goal to give the Bees a 2-1 lead.

SAU finished with a 15-5 edge in shots and Nicole Staines was credited with three saves, two of those coming in the second half, to earn the win.

The Bees will next host Calumet St. Joseph Saturday at 7 p.m. in a CCAC match at St. Vincent's.
