The freshmen had a great showing in the first game of the season. With wind chills below freezing, the players showed toughness and resilience against a strong Brentwood team. Lia Payne '22 and Ellie Bowles '22 were strong in the midfield, competing at a level beyond their years. Lia scored the first goal of the game to give USN the lead for a brief moment. Olivia Dossett '19 led the Tigers in all categories with two goals, ten ground balls, five draw controls, and three caused turnovers.
Tigers are looking to bounce back this weekend against Baylor School of Chattanooga.
