PERKINSTON — No. 20 Mississippi Gulf Coast saw its seven-game win streak end Sunday when Georgia Military beat the Bulldogs 3-1 at the MGCCC Soccer Complex.
"They're a good team. That's the bottom line," Gulf Coast coach Chris Handy said." It's very good for us. We needed that game. We've won a bunch in a row, and you can get complacent. After that game, there's no way we can be."
Gulf Coast (7-2) fell behind in the 23rd minute but drew back even when Max Johnson (Fr, Rugby, England/Harris Church of England Academy) converted a penalty. His pass on a free kick to Brayan Resendiz (Fr, Horn Lake/Horn Lake) forced the foul in the GMC box.
The Bulldogs had several good chances, but the GMC keeper was not easily beaten. Georgia Military scored twice in the final 15 minutes to put the game away.
"We needed that game," Handy said. "I hate that we lost, but against it's a good team. We can't complain too much about the loss."
The Bulldogs return to MACJC South play Tuesday when Jones County visits Perkinston. The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
