The Princeton Tigers didn’t bring their “A” game Monday and they needed it, coach David Gray said.
They had to play catch-up the whole game with Orion-Sherrard, falling behind 2-0, 2-1 and eventually falling 3-2 at the Bryant Field pitch.
”To be honest, I don’t think we played our best. I think the teams may be pretty even. I feel like if we had played our ‘A’ game, we’d probably had given ourselves a better chance,” Gray said.
“We were a little off tonight. For whatever reason. Blame it Monday, blame it on Homestead. I don’t know what. We had a lot going on this weekend. Little sluggish. Little slow. Let them win too many 50-50 balls. Didn’t do the dirty work you need to win games that are close.
“We’re disappointed , but be back at it tomorrow night (at practice).”
Sophomore Carlos Benavidez got the Tigers (3-7-3) on the board first with a penalty kick.
Freshman Asa Gartin added another goal, but the Tigers could score no more.
Gray said the Tigers will have to play much better against Sterling at home Thursday.
