Lady Tigers rout Haralson to open region slate
The Adairsville girls’ soccer team opened their 2020 Region 6-AAA slate Friday night by routing visiting Haralson County, 10-0. The game was halted with 23 minutes remaining in the second half due to the Georgia High School Association’s soccer mercy rule. “We completely controlled the middle of the field,” said Lady Tigers’ head coach Major David Sexauer. “Our defense changed formation to allow one or two players to move into a holding mid-position. That gave us more offensive players on the drive to the goal.
The Lady Tigers, who led 7-0 by halftime, were able to play the entire bench in the second half. Cat Wheeler, Giorgia Conduff, and Millie Conduff scored two goals each. Wheeler added an assist. Kaylee Jordan, Taylor Rhoades, Lillie McBride, Gracie Baker, and Taylor Phillips also scored goals for the Lady Tigers. Megan Hardin finished with a pair of assists. Sadye Johnson and Jordan also added assists on goals.
Adairsville (5-0, 1-0) returns to their home pitch Tuesday as they host the Phoenix of Sonoraville.
