The Lady Tigers fell short on Friday night, losing their match against Chestatee High School 9-0.
The loss on March 6 ended the Lady Tigers' three-game win streak, which was capped by a 2-0 victory against Cherokee Bluff High School on Tuesday, Mar. 3. Both goals during that match were scored in the second half. Clarice Griffith scored the first goal of the night and Georgia State commit Molly Muenchen sent the second goal into the back of the net.
Head Coach Chess Hamby said the girl’s prior successes were due to the team’s health, and their ability to rotate players in and keep fresh legs on the field.
The loss on Friday moves the Lady Tigers to a 3-5-1 season. Hamby said the team will look to put this loss behind them and focus on their next match.
“We just got off to a slow start and couldn’t recover,” Hamby said. “Things just kind of snowballed after that. It wasn’t what we were looking for but looking to get some more girls healthy next week.”
The Tigers lost both games this week. On Tuesday, Mar. 3, they fell shorts against Cherokee Bluff 7-1. The match on Friday, Mar. 6 against the Chestatee High School War Eagles ended in a mercy rule, with a final score of 10-0.
