The Lady Hornets won the game 4-2. They won the tournament after playing two games in one day and were missing some players.
“Had some girls leave at halftime to be in the play, girls played hard all day in windy conditions and battled through tired legs. Played hard and played together and I couldn’t have asked for more out of them!” said Chapman.
The Lady Hornets will play St. Pius X at home on Tuesday at 5pm and will try to extend their three-game winning streak.
