Tigers win rivalry matchup with Logan Elm

On their senior night, Circleville picked up a hat trick from one of those upperclassmen on the way to a 5-1 win over Logan Elm.

Circleville senior Faith Yancey started the game’s scoring in the 20th minute, and she assisted junior Makya Cockerham on a goal in the 30th minute to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead which stood at halftime.

Groff had two assists in the game and freshman Josei Randle had one as well. 

Kylie McCain had four saves in goal for CHS.
