“The girls played better than they did when we travelled to Newport.  Our defense did an outstanding job.  Rylee Shearer had a great game; she rebounded the ball and cleared it out of the circle after Emily Carolus stopped the shot,” said Tigers coach Harley Straub. “Shearer also had great drives and hustled to the ball and to recover.  Kyla Swartz stepped up many times and stopped Newport close to mid field and passed it to our offensive side.  Karah Goss scored our lone goal of the game.  Goss pressured Newport, got the ball back, and dodged around the goalie to score.  We still have things to work on, such as pressuring the ball and keeping our sticks down.  We will look to keep playing hard on Thursday.”
