The Lady Indians dropped an 11-1 final at Commerce on Tuesday night in a top-10 matchup within region play.

“Commerce (ranked #1 in the state) is a very good team,” says coach Travis Mullis. “I wished their coach good luck representing Region 8 going forward. Our team is in their third match working on a new formation – more passing connections and movements. Midfield and defenders are adapting, and our forwards are able to get more space to make plays in front of goal.”

#8 Tallulah Falls got its lone goal from Addie Higbie, her 23rd of the season. It came unassisted from the left side of the field.

“This game was another good test as we prepare for the rest of the regular season and into the state playoffs,” adds Mullis. “Our team will conntinue to get better as we maximize our understanding of how to play and use our abilities going forward. Next important step is Senior Night on Thursday when we’re able to celebrate our players. It’ll be a very special time for them.”

TFS is now 7-3 overall and 4-2 in region play.
