… and the Tigers finally did, playing on May 7 a game that got rained out in early April. They lost 1-0, playing well enough to win but running into an incredible run of bad luck in shots on goal.

But the Tigers of spring were far, far better than the Tigers of this past fall. Their dribbling and shooting improved, but the biggest improvement came in their seeing, and passing to, open teammates. That ability, and the corresponding defensive ability to see the open opponent and cut off passing lanes, kept them even in games they would end up losing, and unlike last fall, they won more than they lost.
