But, Bath County answered with three straight goals from Caden Messer to take a 3-1 lead midway through the first half.
Messer scored again early in the second half to extend the lead to 4-1, before the Tigers turned it up a notch to score three straight. Luke Daniels scored a goal with ten minutes remaining, and Jacob Johnson scored on a ball from the middle of the field for the 4-3 final score.
