The Lady Tigers blanked visiting Sonoraville Tuesday night 7-0 in a Region 6-AAA match in Tiger Valley. Adairsville, who has not allowed a goal in region play this season, held a 2-0 lead at halftime on a pair of goals by junior Cat Wheeler. She found the net in the 11th minute on a penalty kick and found the back of the net three minutes later off an assist from Taylor Rhoades. In the second half, the Lady Tigers put the game away with five, unanswered goals.
Sophomore Megan Hardin scored on a penalty kick and also contributed to a Sonoraville own-goal when her corner kick ended up crossing the goal line. Senior Millie Conduff scored on a pair of second half penalty kicks and Wheeler added a goal with Megan Hardin providing the assist.
