The Tigers (13-3-2 overall) and Cedar Grove-Belgium share the top spot with 9-2-1 CLC records. Each team has two league matches remaining. The Resorters slipped to 4-8 in the CLC (5-8 overall).

“We came out a little sluggish but were persistent and improved as the game continued. I was proud of the girls’ never-give-up attitude,” said Tiger head coach Todd Fischer.

HGHS grabbed a 1-0 lead on a breakaway goal by Brittany Schaller only eight minutes into the match.

The Resorters answered with a goal by Camrie Schmitz at the 19-minute mark.

Morgan Edge’s goal five minutes into the second half gave the Tigers a 2-1 advantage. The final goal was scored by Allison Schmid with three minutes left.

HGHS held a 12-3 edge in shots on goal. Tiger goalies Olivia Stauss and Sam Yancy made one save each. Elkhart goalkeeper Taylor Porter was credited with eight saves.

Meghan Clemens, the Resorters’ normal starting goalie, was moved to defender for this game because the Resorters were missing four starters due to other commitments.

“Taylor did an overall great job in goal tonight. She is getting a better feel as to when to attack,” said Resorter head coach Kevin Ruh.

“Howards kept their starters in until the last two minutes – not letting up. This was a great test for our endurance for the girls as they had to play extended minutes tonight. They never gave up which is all you can ask from them.”
