“It was good to get the win, but I really wasn’t happy with how we played,” Daniels said. “We have got to work on opening up the field more. We’ve got a lot of places to improve.”

The Tigers had 22 shots on goal in the game, and Brooks assisted on two of the Tigers 10 goals. Every senior on the team except the goalkeepers had a shot on goal.

The Tigers will head to Mobile on Saturday to face Murphy and Saraland in a double-header.

“I expect to see a lot of fast, European-style play out of Murphy and a hard-fought game with Saraland,” Daniels said. “We match up well on paper. We’re going to go down there and see what we can do and hopefully bring back some wins.”
