WC soccer ties with Germantown

Published 9:17 am Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Max Wamsley scored the tying goal in the 70th minute, and Warren Central’s boys’ soccer team opened its season with a 1-1 tie against Germantown on Tuesday night.

Wamsley’s goal, off an assist from Theo Stang, salvaged a somewhat frustrating night for the Vikings. They had six shots on goal, but coach Greg Head said his team struggled to adjust to the speedier artificial turf surface of Germantown’s field.

“It was a good first game. We worked the ball well. We just couldn’t connect on passes on that turf. We’ve been practicing on grass, and it’s a whole different game. We’d better get used to it, though, because we have a lot of games on it,” Head said.

Missy Gators open with a loss

Vicksburg High’s girls soccer team started a new era on the wrong foot, losing 5-0 to Pearl on Tuesday in its season opener.

Vicksburg has won the last two Division 4-5A championships, but has three brand new starters and a new coach, former assistant Haley Everett who stepped into the new role over the summer.

“We’re a relatively new team, so we are still getting used to working together. But I am super proud of their effort,” Everett said.
