Thursday, January 17,  both the MSMS Blue Waves and Lady Waves teams lost on the road at Choctaw Central High School. The Lady Waves lost 6-0 and the boys lost 8-0.

“It was not our night,” said Coach Chuck Yarborough.  “We’ve been playing together well since the break, possessing the ball and communicating, but we just couldn’t put those into action on the field Thursday.”

The Lady Waves fell to 5-2-1 overall and 3-2 in Region play. Though the Lady Waves lost Thursday night, their hard work and victories in the previous games of the season have earned the Lady Waves a trip to the MHSAA playoffs after being classified as runner-up in 1A-2A-3A Region 4.

“Thursday’s game against Choctaw was a game I felt the team could’ve won,” senior Kiera Monroe said. “There were some things that as a team we could have done better, but overall I think our doubts had set in.”

The team couldn’t be happier. This could be history and more recognition for the state and school.”

The despair in Monroe’s voice was quickly replaced with hope and faith in her team once she began to speak about them entering the playoffs second in the district.

“The team couldn’t be happier. This could be history and more recognition for the state and school. I wouldn’t want to play for any other team,” Monroe said.

Yarborough also keeps his head held high despite the Lady Wave’s loss and stays hopeful for a potential win in the playoffs.

“We will keep working together to improve in our final two regular season matches next week.  And, now that we know who we’ll face in the playoffs, we’ll work toward a successful first round match on the road at Strayhorn,” Yarborough said.

 The boys team, though, fell to 2-6 overall and 1-4 in region play.

“We put together some attacks, but we just couldn’t finish,” said Coach Morri Mims.

Both soccer teams keep their hopes up to end the season strong. Their next games will be at New Hope on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
