Wheeler's five goals leads Lady Tigers past Trion

The Adairsville girls soccer team blanked visiting Trion Thursday in Tiger Valley, 10-0. The Lady Tigers led 7-0 at the intermission, so the second half was shortened to 20 minutes. Adairsville’s Cat Wheeler, who finished the night with a school record-tying five goals, scored the first three goals for Adairsville in the first, sixth, and eight minutes of the contest. She later added goals on a direct kick at the 23rd minute and the 60th minute mark. Ellie Causby had a pair of assists on the Wheeler goals. Causby scored in the 10th minute for Adairsville off a corner kick from Kaylee Jordan. Megan Hardin added a goal in the 16th minute. Lillie McBride scored a goal in the 27th minute and Maddie Gossett posted two goals in the 44th and 57th minute marks. McBride and Jordyn Hartline had assists on the Gossett goals.

“We established ourselves quickly tonight and took control of the game from the very first touch of the ball,” said Lady Tigers’ head coach David Sexauer. “The girls controlled the ball and we were able to get playing time for the entire team. Cat (Wheeler) tied a single-game record tonight and her 36-yard direct kick was beautiful.” Adairsville (2-0) hosts Calhoun next Tuesday.
