It was the Tigers' annual Senior Night game, and in the pregame ceremonies, Edwardsville's Class of 2024 - Brynna Archer, Kelley Flannery, Olivia Kolnsberg, and Peel - and their families were all honored, saluted, and thanked for their contributions to the Tigers' girls soccer program. After that, Edwardsville went to work.

Maggie Young had the first goal in the opening two minutes, then Peel scored on a brilliant spin shot to make it 2-0. Neath scored her 12th goal of the year off a great through pass to make it 3-0, then Wylie headed in a goal off a good cross to put the Tigers ahead 4-0. Dayana Figueroa scored off a rebound of a saved shot late in the half to increase the Edwardsville lead to 5-0 at the interval.
