The Lincolnton Wolves fell to the Mooresville Blue Devils 9-0 Monday in their season opener.
The Wolves did not even win a game in what head coach Chris Hoffman calls ‘the worst opening day ever.’
Hoffman believes his team has to put forth more effort.
“To become competitive, we’ve got to find some more players and get a better effort from the ones we have,” he said, referring to fact his team forfeited two singles and one doubles’ match due to being short-handed.
