Princeton 2, Alleman 0: The Tigers got one goal in each half, and goal keeper Lucas Bauer took care of the rest for a 2-0 win at Rock Island Thursday. Tyler Marvin scored at the 5:30 mark of the first half with an assist from Nate Duffy. Dylan Schaefer chipped in a second-half goal at 9:38 to cap the scoring.

Bauer made seven saves on goal. Alleman fired 13 shots, the Tigers 16.

PHS coach Jason Bird was not overly pleased with the Tigers’ effort having rocked Alleman 5-1 less than a week before in a 50-minute game. He said the Tigers didn’t play with much energy, and “Alleman took it to us.”

But he added, “We will take any win we can get.”

DePue 7, Serena 3: The Little Giants took their victory tour on the road Thursday to Serena where they stayed on a hot streak. Carlos Acosta scored five of the seven goals with Adrian Perez responsible for three assists.

“It was a good defensive effort with some small communication errors,” DePue coach Tim Stevens said. “Offense was a little one dimensional but the assist to goal ratio was encouraging. We need to work on spreading out the attack in midfield and better transition defense.”

The Little Giants outshot the Huskers 28-11.
