Lansing scored with two minutes left in the second half, ending the game with a score of 5-1 Jaguars.

Senior defender Christian Howe said he was happy with how the team played.

“We came out and controlled the pace of the game so we had more control over the other team, which is what we always want,” Howe said.

Tener said the way the team played upheld his expectations.

“It was our last time playing Lansing in this league, and so we were really hoping to beat them. We came out successful in that,” Tener said.

Howe said the team worked together well and was able to maintain control for the entire game.

“I feel like we really played as a team and as a unit, and we really controlled the possession, and that’s what led to our win,” Howe said.
