KNOXVILLE, TN - The Trailblazers enjoyed a thrilling match against NCCAA #10 Toccoa Falls College on Saturday afternoon, coming away with a 4-3 comeback victory for their second straight win.

Behind the foot of freshman forward, Rachel Bingaman, Ohio Christian rallied for a late goal with three minutes left to tie the game at 3-3.
