The Adairsville Lady Tigers, who have fought off the injury bug thus far in the soccer season, earned their first win Tuesday in Chatsworth, a 1-0 triumph of the last-second variety to stun North Murray.
Adairsville's Brooke Chagon scored off an assist from Cassidy Green to give the Lady Tigers the match's first goal with nearly 20 seconds left.
"We dominated them," Adairsville assistant coach Lance Hall said. "We outshot them, 21-4, but we could not get it to go into the goal until 21 seconds [were] left. ... It was a great feeling when that ball trickled into the net ... and Cassidy made a great pass, hit Brooke on the back post.
"It was a feeling of relief."
Junior goal keeper Caitlin Berkenkamp notched her first career varsity win and shutout, send all four of the Lady Mountaineers' shots away.
"We've had several injuries," Hall said. "We had to move her to goal."
Berkenkamp, a three-year starter, came up big.
Hall does not know how the team will build off of the win.
"We're just too busy enjoying it right now," the Lady Tigers' assistant said. "We're getting better. ... We've just been moving people around. I think we're finally starting to get people in the right position."
Adairsville (1-2) will wait almost a week for its next match after having to reschedule a match with Mount Zion, which had been planned for Thursday.
The Lady Tigers travel to play Trion Monday at 5:30 p.m.
Centennial 4, Woodland 0
Centennial scored a goal in the first 10 minutes of their contest with Woodland and went on to a 4-0 victory against the team Tuesday.
Coach Kyle Morgan said the Lady Wildcats played spotty at times and that's not how to beat the better squads -- like Centennial, which competes in AAAAA.
"I thought we were slow getting to the ball early and you have to play better than that to beat teams like Centennial," he said.
The Lady Knights added a second goal in the half, to claim a 2-0 lead at halftime.
Centennial added two more goals in the second half.
"Still, it was a good experience for our kids, two of whom are juniors and the rest freshmen and sophomores," Morgan said. "To Centennial's credit, they finished when they had opportunities. Hopefully we'll take the positives out of this, and it will help us later."
Woodland (1-3) next plays on Thursday, when it lines up against Allatoona, which knocked the Lady Wildcats out of the region tournament last season.
