HOW IT HAPPENED

  • The Tigers struck first in the 32nd minute as Hunter Weiland sent in a long forward pass into the box that found the head of Cody Brugos, where he redirected it into the back of the net
  • Just a little over two minutes later, Niko Reinson took a corner kick and connected with Jacob Siler with another header goal to put H-SC up 2-0 at 33:24

COACH DINUZZO'S COMMENTS

  • "Tough game today against a much improved Shenandoah team. We had an opportunity to put the game away fairly early, but to their credit, they battled back and made it difficult for us until the end. All in all, we are glad to get out of there with a win and hopefully will learn from this."
