What To Watch For
After dropping their first two games to league-leading Barker and 2nd place Roy-Hart, Medina has put together a 6-game winning streak that has seen them outscore their opponents 24-3, including 4 shutouts.
Medina knocked off Akron, the only team to best Barker this year, last Tuesday. That win, a 6-game winning streak and home field advantage has Head Coach Amber Cleaveland and her Lady Mustangs excited for this afternoon’s game.
Barker, who is coming off a signature win of their own after beating Roy-Hart 2-1 on Thursday, beat Medina 7-2 in their first contest. The Lady Raiders will need to get off to another fast start to control the momentum of the game early on if they wish to remain atop the N-O league standings.
