This past Thursday, both soccer teams representing MSMS had the opportunity to compete against the Winona High School Tigers in 1A/2A/3A Region 4 play. The Lady Waves won 5-0, while the Blue Waves lost to the Tigers 2-4.

In the girls’ win, senior Erin Williams scored 3 goals with 1 assist to lead scorers. Juniors Tierah Macon and Samantha Holland each added a goal, and Senior Mia Ridley had an assist.

Tonight was truly a coming-of-age match for our team.”

— Yarborough

 

 

Several newcomers excelled and improved during this game, including Junior Clara Grady who preserved the shutout with 4 saves. Head Coach Chuck Yarborough had some very positive comments to say about his team.

“Tonight was truly a coming-of-age match for our team,” Yarborough said. “We asked players to step up tonight to fill in for missing teammates, and we saw the kind of effort and togetherness on the field that leads to success.”

The MSMS Lady Waves improved to 3-0-1 overall, and 2-0 in district play after this game, putting them much closer to the top of the district.

The MSMS Blue Waves dropped their match 4-2. They lost by two goals, with both Waves’ goals being scored by a junior, Boatner Calhoun.

“We know what we need to work on,” said Coach Morri Mims in reaction to this loss. “We’ll get back at in our next practice, and we’ll be ready for Choctaw.”

The Blue Waves fell 2-2, 1-1 in district.

Both MSMS Soccer teams return to action Tuesday, December 11, hosting district rival Choctaw Central at the Columbus Riverwalk Soccer Complex.
