Marshall goes to 2-2
A long road trip Wednesday, Aug. 27, took its toll on the Marshall Academy soccer team.
The Lady Patriots lost 4-1 to Manchester Academy, located in Yazoo City. Their season record went to 2-2.
“It was definitely a tough loss to a team that we should have played much closer,” coach Catherine Mirante said. “I think the long ride (about three hours) got the best of us though. We just didn’t have any legs. At half-time I explained the fact that we were late to every ball and the girls responded in frustration that they knew it and could feel it but just couldn’t seem to get things going.
“I’ve coached many games where I felt like my team wasn’t ready mentally and didn’t give the effort that they could have, but this was not one of them. This time they gave what they had. The problem was simply that they didn’t have much to give on this particular day.”
Amanda Rhea scored Marshall’s only goal, that coming in the second half and trimming the deficit to 2-1. But the Lady Mavericks answered with two late goals to secure the victory.
The Lady Patriots were slated to visit Indianola on Tuesday of this week. They will host Bayou Academy next Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 4:30 p.m.
