In the second half, the Lady Tigers began to pick up their play and created some good scoring chances. In the 25th minute of the half, sophomore Amanda Miller made a terrific play from the corner, beat a defender and then ripped a left-footed shot over Pine-Richland goalie Leah Roth to cut the deficit to 2-1. Miller struck again in the 33rd minute thanks to a through ball from senior Ryleigh Gapczynski, burying a shot over Roth to even the score at 2-2.
