    Haven't seen either play this year, so my only prediction is "why?"
    The team that scores the most goals will win.

    Have to take my Tigers. You’re the Champ until someone knocks you off. Looks to be a good match between to great teams.

    Because that’s what fans do on sport posts. Not sure why you would come on a thread that asks to predict if not interested in dialogue.

    Both teams have experienced seniors. Both teams have an All American. Case Cox typically hangs out on the left wing. He is about six two. Extremely fast with amazing ability to get through two or three defenders and find the net. McManus for Trinity is the all American striker. Has deceptive speed but that’s not where he beats a defense. Plays with his back facing the goal better than any player I’ve seen. He is deadly with a shot or with an assist. Extremely intelligent soccer player and is always trying to solve the challenges on the field. Both players play with intensity and effort. St. X also has a great striker and right winger. Their offense is extremely deadly. Trinity has four wing players all that have speed and tremendous ability. Both teams have a talented midfield. I think Trinity’s defense has two big talented center backs that I have not seen in other teams. Drew Pierce could play CDM or right wing and cause any team problems with his offense. But now he is a lock down defender. Both goalies are experienced. I think Trinity’s goalie is extremely athletic but the X goalie has been great all season. It’s 50 - 50 on who wins. Both teams will be flying around the ball.
