Lady Cats Soccer
After the shorthanded Lady Cats’ soccer team lost a home match to Mount Pleasant, 2-0 Friday night, Lady Cats Coach Joel Bailey said hats off to Mount Pleasant adding they seemed to have the Lady Cats’ number all night. He said the Lady Cats threw all they had at the Lady Tigers but he said having injuries and being without key players caught up to the Lady Cats Friday. Coach Bailey said it was better to lose an early district game than a playoff game that ends your season. After Mount Pleasant scored two first half goals with the wind advantage, Coach Bailey said the Lady Cats looked better in the second half, couldn’t score but did shut the Lady Tigers out. He doesn’t want to lose twice to any team in the district. Coach Bailey said his team needs to pick up a win at Mount Pleasant when the two teams have a rematch next month. He said there is still a lot of soccer to play. The Lady Cats travel to Greenville Monday night at 7 p.m. Coach Bailey called Greenville scrappy. He said they were down near the bottom of the district standings but he added you can’t overlook them.
