Campbellsport at Manitowac Lincoln Invitational
Playing shorthanded multiple players — including senior Paige Birschbach — the Cougars still managed to come away with a tournament championship with a win and a tie, edging Marinette for the title via a goals-scored-against tiebreaker.
Campbellsport began the day with a 2-2 tie vs. Marinette, coming back from down 2-0 with goals from sophomore Brooke Birschbach and freshman Tiffany Anderson in the final 10 minutes.
The Cougars (4-2-1) followed that with a 3-1 win over Manitowac as Anderson scored twice in the first half and Birschbach added a goal in the 70th minute.
Campbellsport head coach Tim Scannell noted the play of Anderson — who was playing at forward for the first time — as well as senior Karla Ciprian in the defensive backfield.
