Adairsville placed 28 shots on goal, but the Blue Devils net minders were up to the task.
Stuart Abernathy had 17 saves and Nic Jackson eight in net for the Tigers.
“We played well,” stated coach Abernathy. “They have a tough atmosphere to play in, but the boys gave it 110 percent. I’m very proud of their effort and looking forward to playing again tomorrow.”
Bremen improved to 6-2 overall and 1-1 in Region 6AAA action.
