On Saturday, Nov. 5, both the girls and boys soccer teams for the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science kicked a ball around for a while. What makes this different from the practices they have four days a week? Instead of practicing for a game, they played two of them.
Saturday was a day filled with excitement for the Blue Waves girls and guys. The girls played Columbus High School and Neshoba Central High School while the guys played Neshoba and Amory.
The girls were defeated by Columbus 4-0 and tied with Neshoba 1-1. The guys were defeated by both Neshoba and Amory with final scores of 3-0 and 1-0 respectively.
Although they did not achieve the best outcome, junior Yousef Abu-Salah said, “I believe that the preseason is to take out all the kinks that our team faces, but these kinks will be resolved by the season because we have resilience as a team and as a family.”
The girls team seems to agree with him. Senior Lyndsey Risinger said,“We lost, which sucked, [but] we learned a lot about what to improve on.”
Senior and co-captain of the team, Darby Meadows, also stated, “Though we didn’t get a win, those games showed that MSMS is gonna have a great year!”
Both teams return to action Friday against cross-county rival New Hope.
