Mia Fishel scores debut professional goal for Tigres


Mia Fishel’s campaign with Tigres Femenil is officially underway, as the rookie scored her first professional goal for the club on Friday.

Firing in a spilled save, Fishel’s finish helped Tigres to a 4-2 win over Mazatlan F.C. in the team’s LIGA MX Femenil matchup.

The former UCLA Bruin was the fifth overall pick in the 2022 NWSL Draft, with the Orlando Pride selecting Fishel as their first round pick. Fishel, however, announced in January that she would be signing with Mexican club Tigres Femenil instead of beginning her professional career in the NWSL.

The star forward ended her 2021 season with 12 goals and five assists in 19 appearances with UCLA.
