PERKINSTON — An out-of-state team with one Top-25 scalp on their wall already visits the MGCCC Soccer Complex on Sunday to play the No. 20 Bulldogs.
Georgia Military (7-2) defeated No. 7 Daytona State 2-1 last week, meaning Gulf Coast will be facing a very good opponent when the game kicks off at 1 p.m.
"The coach (Dave Sexton) has run good programs before," Bulldogs coach Chris Handy said. "His teams have always been talented. They beat Daytona State, which was in the national tournament a year ago, so obviously they can play."
Gulf Coast has won seven straight after a season-opening loss to then-No. 1 Tyler, the two-time defending national champions. The Bulldogs' last two games, however, have gone to overtime.
They defeated Andrew College 4-3 in Perkinston two weekends ago and edged Hinds 2-1 on Tuesday.
Gulf Coast has rolled through the MACJC South Division, beating the four opponents by a combined 23-0 in the first half of the schedule. These out-of-state teams are important to Handy in developing his team.
"It's a good challenge," had said. "It's the games we look forward to. That's why we put them on the schedule."
