“The girls benefited from a long break and we seem to be really healthy after four full days off.

“The Random Lake girls played nice defense this evening and made things a little tricky on us as they pushed their defenders up high and caught us off-sides early in the game. Once the girls had that figured out, we were able to create some better scoring opportunities,” said Smith.

The Tigers will host the Rams in a D-4 regional opener Thursday, June 2 at 5 p.m.
