Farmington scored three goals in each half to defeat Faribault 6-0 in the season opener for both teams played Thursday afternoon, Aug. 25, at Tiger Stadium.
Despite the final outcome, Tiger coach Rob Carpentier said his team's performance could best be described as up-and-down.
"I wasn't happy with what appeared to be a complacent attitude on the part of some of the girls," he said. "Couple that with nerves on the part of the younger girls and we had an inconsistent performance.
"If the older girls continue to play with a sense of entitlement which they didn't have in our scrimmages, they'll be in for a rude awakening..."
Goals by Rachel Beck, Ashley Kimmel and Destiny Schmitz netted first half goals and Beck, Kimmel and Alyssa Parco scored after intermission to account for the Tiger goals.
Kimmel had an assist for a three-point game and Hannah Miller, Kentya Macias and Izzie Ferm each chipped in with assists.
Junior Sydney Eckert and freshman Ashley Becker shared the goalkeeping duties in the shutout but neither received much of a test. The Tigers outshot the Falcons by a lopsided 44-3 count.
"That's not a misprint." Carpentier said. "It (the score) should have been much worse."
The level of competition figures to pick up this weekend at the Prior Lake Invitational. The Tigers open tourney play Friday night against Waconia.
