After defeating East Hall 10-0 via the mercy rule on April 17, the Lady Tigers closed their season out with a 4-2 senior night win over White County on Friday at Tigers Stadium.
The game started well enough for the Tigers, up 2-0 at the half with goals by Molly Muenchen and Rachel Rajczak. Muenchen added one more to start the second half, but White County answered with a goal just over a minute later.
It stayed 3-1 until Kinsey Beaty took a pass from Katie Clouse to score with just over five minutes left in the game. For Clouse, it was her third assist of the game.
Goalkeeper Ashley Stanfill made 14 saves to hold White County to only two goals, the last of which came with just seconds remaining on the clock.
The Lady Tigers enter the postseason with an 11-2 record and riding a seven-game winning streak, outscoring their opponents 31-4 during the streak. It’s been an impressive season so far, but Coach Chess Hamby knows all that can change in an instant.
“It’s do or die now,” Hamby said. “Every week for everybody so we got to keep getting better as weeks keep coming along, as the games keep coming along.
“That’s the big key is can you get better. You can’t get satisfied to the point where you’re complacent with where you’re at because that’s when you’re going to get beat by teams that continue to get better.”
The Lady Tigers will look to keep getting better as they start their postseason run at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Tigers Stadium against Monroe Area.
