Lady Tigers coach Adam Bryie was pleased with the effort his club provided, despite the loss.
"I think we played a lot better in the second half," Bryie said.
Experience is allowing the Lady Tigers to play better soccer as a team.
"We played better as a team today and that is something that is going to help us in the future," Bryie said.

Camden 3, BI 0Camden took an early lead, scoring their first goal with 26 minutes left in the first half. The Wildcats got help scoring their second goal off of a deflection.
Camden played tight defense limiting Bradwell’s scoring opportunities.
Bradwell coach Tommy Oglesby did find positives that the Tigers can build on.
"Overall, I think the game went well. We gave up the first goal and the second one came off a deflection, which is unfortunate," Oglesby said.
The Tigers had decent ball movement and were able to pass the ball wide, according to Oglesby.
Two areas that really concerned Oglesby were playing stronger defense and developing an offensive attack.
"We have got to do a better job of marking up," the coach said. "We need to learn to mark up the post better too."
Bradwell fell to 2-2 in the region and will play region foe Windsor Forest Tuesday.
