Adairsville girls cruise to 3-0 win


It was not the most lopsided win the No. 7-ranked Adairsville girls soccer team has had this season, but the Lady Tigers took care of business Tuesday, nonetheless, defeating Gordon Central on the road by a score of 3-0.

“I know the score doesn’t indicate it, but we pretty much had control the whole time,” Adairsville assistant coach Lance Hall said of the game. “We tried a lot of different things tonight, trying to tune up for the playoffs.”

Kaitlyn Webster scored the first goal in the seventh minute and Emily Collum added another in the 14th minute.

The Lady Tigers took a 2-0 lead into halftime before scoring one last goal in the 78th minute. Gillian Johnson tallied the goal.

Keeper Havyn Isaac recorded the shutout.

“We played everybody, all 19 girls. We tried some different formations and just experimented with people,” Hall said. “Emily Emmons — she’s one of our fullbacks — she had a really great game. [Adairsville head coach David] Sexauer said she made some good runs, made some offensive threats, good passes, dynamic in the back.”

Adairsville is now 11-0 overall and 5-0 in Region 6-AAA. The Lady Tigers will next take on North Murray Thursday before an important region tilt with the other undefeated team in the region, Sonoraville, Friday.
