Lady Pats knock off Bayou
By BARRY BURLESON
Coach Catherine Mirante liked the fight in her Marshall Academy soccer team September 9.
The result was a 2-1 conference win over Bayou Academy. The Lady Patriots improved to 3-2 on the season.
“This was a great performance against a very physical team,” Mirante said. “Our girls played aggressively and fought non-stop for 80 minutes to come out with the win.”
Bayou’s only goal came in the last two minutes of the game.
“We could not have done it without fantastic play by our goalkeeper, Kristin Mynatt,” Mirante said. “We worked her extremely hard in practice leading up to the game, and it paid off. She made numerous outstanding saves.”
Scoring goals for Marshall in the home victory were Emma Burleson and Amanda Rhea.
Mirante said the rivalry with the Lady Colts is huge and tension levels were high.
“In situations like that it’s easy for an immature team to lose their head and make foolish mistakes,” she said, “but I’m proud to say we did just the opposite.
The Lady Patriots are in the midst of a busy week. They visited Magnolia Heights Tuesday. They host Heritage Academy Thursday at 4 p.m., and they travel to Starkville Academy Saturday for a 2 p.m. contest.
Next Tuesday, Sept. 23, MA hosts Lee (Clarksdale) at 4:30 p.m.
