Hohenfels teams find success away from home
All the Hohenfels Lady Tigers needed, as it turned out, was a change in scenery.
Hohenfels, which had been unable to score in its season-opening run of three home games, put that shoe on Ansbach’s foot Saturday, blanking the home team, 2-0, behind first-half goals from Emily Barnett and Alexis Perryman.
The Tigers were so dominant in the win that their keeper, Franziska Fenslage, was called on for just two saves. By contrast, Ansbach keeper Danielle Martin made 12.
The victory left Ansbach, which is scheduled to host Vilseck of Division I on Wednesday, with a 1-3 overall and regional mark.
Hohenfels improved to 1-3 overall, 1-2 in Region III. They are next scheduled to play at defending European D-I champion Patch on April 30.
