Ozark Goes 1-2 at Rolla Invitational
The Tigers returned to the Rolla Invitational this past weekend to face Class 2 Powerhouse, Southern Boone County. The Tigers played very well against a very strong team, managing 8 shots on goal and 3 corner kicks to SoBoCo’s 12 shots on goal. The match ended 5-0, although the efforts on the pitch reflected a much closer game.
Saturday, the Tigers dropped a saddening one to host Rolla, 3-2 after controlling 80 minutes of the game. The Tigers outshot the Bulldogs 16 to 6, but failed to get a handled defensively on the long throwings, which netted Rolla both second half goals. The afternoon match against Battle HS, the Tigers stepped things up, taking the match 3-1. A last minute attack by Battle took away the shut out, and the Tigers deserving second place finish!!
