Youthful Tigers working through early season 'growing pains' with upbeat expectations

A youthful Adairsville boys soccer team is off to an 0-3 start this season, but new coach Salvador Grimaldo plans to be patient yet have rising expectations for his young Tigers. “This is a learning year for our team,” said Grimaldo. “We only have a few players returning from last season and the roster will include 14 freshmen.”

The Tigers have started the season with three non-region games and have dropped all three, falling to Woodland (10-4), Gordon Central (10-0), and most recently Trion Thursday night, 3-0. “The team is working hard and adapting to the expectations,” noted Grimaldo. “We’ve suffered from some inexperience, but I look forward to turning this adversity around in order to acquire some victories.” In the opening loss to Woodland, Manuel Lopez scored three goals for the Tigers with Edgar Rojas adding another off an assist by Lopez.

Adairsville will take much of their younger group to Barron Stadium Friday evening for a JV match with Rome and the next varsity scheduled match is next Thursday (Feb. 11) at Darlington.
