This weekend, the Tigers hosted our Varsity Invitational and were matched up with some strong competition. In the morning match against Hamilton Heights, we got off to a rocky start and fell behind a goal in the first half. The second half brought more composed play, but our offense couldn’t capitalize on attacking opportunities. Heights was able to get another goal in before we were delayed for lightning. The final minutes of the game, the Tigers hammered Heights’ net, but fell 0-2. Eight players cracked shots on goal and kept the attack consistent against a strong Heights defense.
In afternoon play, the Tigers hosted Lafayette Central Catholic and were matched well for competition. LCC was able to score in the first half and we couldn’t manage an equalizer even after taking 15 shots on goal. The Tigers pressed the goal hard in the final minutes of the game and fell 0-1 after 80 minutes of strong play.
The Tigers play at Western Boone Tuesday at 5:30.
