After competing in their final two regular season games over the weekend, the Tigers now have the opportunity of hosting the play-in game of the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament. Saturday afternoon, the Tigers traveled to Pomona-Pitzer to take on the Sagehens in hopes of extending their win streak to three. After playing an evenly matched first half, the Sagehens would increase their lead in the second half, forcing the Tigers to make a comeback. Unfortunately, for the Tigers, the comeback they were hoping for fell short as they were defeated by the Sagehens, 10-7. The Tigers were quick to get back on the field as they turned around Sunday afternoon and went on the road to play University of Redlands, a match that had been postponed from earlier in the season. Redlands started the game off hot, coming out and creating a 4-0 lead within the first ten minutes. The Tigers Rebecca Belding would be the first of five Tigers to find the back of the goal. But, the Tigers found themselves fighting from behind, throughout the game. Redlands went into the intermission with a 7-3 lead and would come back to increase their lead with another goal 30 seconds into the second half. The goal would be immediately answered 14 seconds later by Tori Larson. At the 23:00 mark, sophomore Isabel Osgood-Roach would score back-to-back goals, securing her third hat trick of the season, while bringing the Tigers within three of the Bulldogs. After the Tigers allowed another goal by the Bulldogs, Belding would score off an assist by Lauren Wemple. Redlands would then go on a 5-0 run increasing their lead to 8 with 11 minutes remaining in the game. Sophomore Sarah Kessler would get her fifth hat trick of the season, scoring the last three goals for the Tigers. The results of the weekend games put the Tigers in position of hosting the play in game for the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament. The fourth seeded Tigers (5-11, 2-6 SCIAC) will host the fifth seeded Whittier College Poets Wednesday, April 27 at 7:00 p.m. on Patterson Field on the home of Occidental College. The Tigers are hoping to reach their first SCIAC tournament with a win Wednesday night. Come out and support your Tigers or follow the game on our website!
