Playing their first game in 9 days the Tiger’s faced their toughest opponent of the season last night in Cornerstone University.
Despite the long lay off the Tigers came out strong and performed very well in the first half keeping the score 0-1 for the majority of the period. With :37 left in the half the Golden Eagles were able to find the back of the net again and go into the break up 2-0. The second half was all Cornerstone. Scoring 3 times in the first 5 minutes the Golden Eagles were able to take a commanding 5-0 lead. Grace would prove unable to recover and get anything going on the offensive side of the ball as the final tally would read 7-0 in favor of the Golden Eagles.
“I thought we did pretty well int he first half with the exception of the second goal.” Said Coach Rumenapp. “The Second half we just did not play smart out the gate. We made some mental mistakes and Cornerstone was able to capitalize on them. We now know what we need to focus on in practice to continue to prepare for our regional tournament and more short-term Andrews University on Wednesday evening. We will be ready.”
