MGCCC shuts out Northwest

MGCCC shuts out Northwest

Curissa Beatty's early long-range blast was all the offense Mississippi Gulf Coast needed in a 1-0 win at Northwest in Senatobia.


The Lady Bulldogs evened their record two games into the regular season with the shutout. It came a game after surrendering five goals.


"We played so much better," coach Jackie Rhodes said. "There was a lot of hard work all week, and that's what we wanted to see. You could see with the result they're starting to figure out what we want to see from the team."


The freshman from Biloxi pounced when Northwest tried to clear a corner. Her shot from 30 yards out in the fifth minute was the only goal.


It wasn't for lack of chances, though. Gulf Coast had 21 shots, 12 of them on goal.


"We were able to get around them," Rhodes said. "We had a lot of success putting the ball into the top of the box. Now we just need to work on finishing those opportunities."


The Lady Bulldogs return to action Saturday when they play Southwest Tennessee. Play in Memphis starts at 11 a.m.
