Zach Zimmerman scored the only goal Monday for Fremont Ross in an 8-1 non-conference setback to Port Clinton to start the season.
“We played well to start,” Little Giants coach Tom Ackerman said. “The first 10 minutes we played well and had it in their end.
“We can’t hang our heads. They had some fast guys.”
Ackerman, who came over from Old Fort, was anxious to get the campaign under way.
“We were pretty much ready to go,” Ackerman said. “I’m learning as the new coach and getting a feel for where everybody plays.”
Ross was missing a few players because of injuries Monday.
“We shuffled the lineup,” Ackerman said.
“It’s a fairly young team with six freshman and sophomore starters.”
Denmark exchange student Simon Shulz scored five goals for the Redskins.
“He adds to our attack,” Port Clinton coach Paco Romero said.
“He adds a different look. We have attackers who can beat you in many ways. We have speed and skill.”
The Ross girls also fell to the Redskins 6-1.
