The Lady Tigers had possession much of the evening and got a goal apiece in each half.

Twinsburg got on the board with a little more than nine minutes into the game.

After Lady Explorers' freshman goalie Lillian Morgan made a long run out of her own net to knock down a long shot by the Lady Tigers, the ball went right to Ana Cleveland.

The Lady Tigers' senior striker gathered the ball and lofted a high-arching shot with her left foot over Morgan and into an empty net.
