With two minutes remaining in the first half of the game, Philipsburg connected several passes in Tyrone’s defensive end and worked towards the center of the goal.

The half ended with Philipsburg leading Tyrone 1-0.

Coming into the second half, Tyrone worked to take better touches and connect more passes. The Lady Eagles dominated possession with the ball remaining in Philipsburg’s defensive end throughout the half. Tyrone took many shots on goal but none were able to make it past Philipsburg’s keeper.
