The Tigers raised their Big East Conference record to 2-1 (2-1 overall). The Crusaders dropped to 0-3 in the BEC (1-3 overall).

“Lutheran/Christian is a good team with a large roster now that their programs have merged,” said Tiger head coach David Kisiolek.

“We were still a little beat up from a physical Oostburg game [won by Oostburg, 2-1] earlier in the week. Lutheran/Christian made us work. We were fortunate to come off the field with a victory.”

Matte made her first varsity start. Payton Scharl assisted on the goal.

HG built a 3-0 lead on a goal each by freshman forward Mackenzie Holzwart and freshman midfielder Leah Parnitzke in the first seven minutes of the second half.

The Crusaders’ goal was scored by Megan Moeller late in the match.

The Tigers held a 27-16 lead in shots. HG goalie Sara Marten made 10 saves and Crusader goalie Naomi Gruben had 16. Kisiolek said Marten played a nice game.

“At halftime we changed our formation and it seemed to produce results quickly. Of the five goals we have scored this season, four were by freshmen and one by a sophomore. We continue to grow on offense while our defense keeps us in the game,” said Kisiolek.
