“It felt pretty good,” Robertson said. “It’s always a team effort.”
RCC’s freshman attacker, Anabella Storar, opened the second quarter with a goal of her own.

As the third quarter came to a close, the Tigers continued to dominate with the score standing at 15-5, showcasing their commanding lead in the match up.
