The Oak Ridge Lady Wildcats opened the regular soccer season with a 6-0 blowout over Anderson County at home on Tuesday.
With a few minutes remaining, Oak Ridge had 37 shots on goal, compared to one for the Lady Mavericks.
Oak Ridge Coach Jeff Trombly said the Lady Wildcats have more maturity and a few more older players than Anderson County.
“I think we’re going to be strong,” Trombly said after the district game.
Still, he said the Lady Mavericks kept fighting and have a good base to build on.
“They’ve improved a lot,” Trombly said.
Oak Ridge senior Katie Welsh, a captain, center back, and all-region player last year, said it’s shaping up to be a good season for the Lady Wildcats.
“The competition is always different,” she said, but Oak Ridge tries to play the same game.
Trombly thinks the team can make a run for state.
The Lady Wildcats will next play Halls at home at 7 p.m. Thursday.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
