"The girls worked very well together," Tigers head coach Jaimee Henderson said. "They implemented the things we've been working on in practice, They had a great connection on the field. It was great to see them win on the home turf for their first week of the season and it gives us a lot of positive momentum going into the Gateway tournament this weekend."
