Chargers fall in season opener to Tiger Cubs

“We knew there going to be some growing pains with having so many new girls in new spots,” Charger coach Julie Hodges said. “Many of the girls were underclassmen too. I started to see bright spots and them really learning after we got dominated in the first 10 minutes of the game and that’s an encouraging sign. That’s what’s exciting about this team is our mistakes are easily fixable and we were learning and adjusting on the fly.”

Ali Dobbs scored two of the five goals for the Tiger Cubs with Carissa Trigg, Clair Langdoc, and Evie Brionnes all scoring one goal each.
