Rough and tumble ... Though the scores were low, the action and physical contact of the Philip/New Underwood game were high. The clock was stopped several times for players to recover from falls. Shown, Sierra Hook (#13) and Marissa Mann (#33) try to relieve a Tiger of a wild ball, while Kayla O’Connell (#25) stands ready for a quick pass.
