The Tigers went up in the 25th minute when Nick Glaser played a ball up to Sean Fraser, who put it in the net past Norwood, who was playing keeper. After taking a 1-0 lead into half, three minutes into the second frame forward Tommy White scored off of a ball from Grant Paule, making the score 2-0, which is how the game would finish.
The Tigers close out their preseason Monday evening at Rhodes College before opening the regular season next Friday evening in the Memphis Invitational against Belmont. Game time is 7:30 at Echles.
