"It was a very hard-fought game. I hate that we lost," Adairsville assistant coach Lance Hall said. "We played as hard as we could play."
After Coosa had scored two goals before halftime to claim the lead, the Lady Tigers kept fighting for the tie, which came nearly 30 minutes later on Nisa Ayers' header in the 67th minute.
Brooke Chagnon provided Ayers with assist.
In the 73rd minute, however, the Lady Eagles got a free kick outside the penalty box after an Adairsville player was called for a handball.
"Maria Hernandez, on a free kick, put it into the back of the net," Hall said.
Cassidy Green's goal in the 15th minute gave the Lady Tigers their only lead of the game.
"She came down the right side and, from about 25 yards out, shot it in. [It was a] nice goal," Hall said.
Adairsville's lead lasted less than 15 minutes as Coosa scored an equalizer in the 27th minute.
"[The ball] had eyes," Hall said. "[It] kind of weaved its way between [some] players and found its way into the net."
Hernandez put the Lady Eagles in front in the 35th with a 25- or 26-yarder, he said.
"[It was a] really nice shot," Hall continued. "There was no way the [goal]keeper could have got that one."
Adairsville (3-4 overall) fell to 0-2 in Region 7A-AA with the loss. Its next match is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday at Rockmart. The match will be a friendly, with an actual region match between the two coming later in the season.
Sequoyah 3, Woodland 0
The Lady Wildcats soccer team was held scoreless Tuesday in its three-goal loss at Sequoyah.
Woodland coach Kyle Morgan said the Lady Chiefs scored their first goal on a corner midway through the first half. Sequoyah, he added, scored five minutes before halftime on a counter attack.
With the Lady Wildcats trying to push a goal across, the Lady Chiefs added their final goal with 5 minutes left in the match.
"We kind of pushed forward, trying to get some goals, and they caught us man up," Morgan said.
Woodland (2-7, 0-3 Region 7-AAAA) hosts two matches this weekend, 6 p.m. Friday vs. Forsyth Central and 1 p.m. Saturday vs. Rome.
"We just need to continue to be positive, try to possess the ball a little more and continue to play with good effort, both mentally and physically," the Lady Wildcats coach said.
