Tiger Cubs returned to action tonight at Crawfordsville and won 5-1. After a slow start the Tiger Cubs took control midway through the first half on a goal by Kennedy Trigg (Sydney Doan assist). “Tonight we made some tactical and player position changes, experimenting with our depth. It put us out of sync at the start but we finished strong,” Coach Monnett said. The Tiger Cubs had plenty of scoring chances putting 19 shots on goal. Defensively, Greencastle turned away multiple attacks by Crawfordsville. “Crawfordsville has struggled in their first two games, we knew they were going to come out strong at home. They played with a lot of pride tonight, but our defense responded and we were able to gain control.” With 4 players starting new positions the Tiger Cubs are utilizing theIr experience to provide multiple looks. “Even with our experience we are a work in progress. I was happy to see the girls respond tonight.”
