Published 10:32 am Wednesday, December 7, 2022
After a rough first month of the season, Warren Central’s girls’ soccer team got a win it needed in more ways than one.
Gloria Hall racked up three goals, Adi Love Leist scored two, and Warren Central routed Terry 8-1 in its MHSAA Region 5-6A opener on Tuesday.
Melissa Herrle, Jordan Polk and Laney Schrader also scored one goal apiece.
It was just the second win in nine games for Warren Central (4-6, 1-0 Region 5-6A). The lopsided region win will also help down the road as it chases a playoff berth. The Lady Vikes play again Thursday at 5:30 p.m., at home against Pearl.
In the boys’ game Tuesday, Terry defeated Warren Central 5-0.
Vicksburg 7, Forest Hill 0
Aisha Murrell, Kennedy Mullins and Amari Johnson scored two goals apiece, and Vicksburg High easily defeated Forest Hill in its MHSAA Region 3-5A opener.
Trinity McGloster had four assists and Mullins had two for the Missy Gators (4-2-2, 1-0 Region 3-5A), who led 5-0 at halftime. Keeper Ava Pritchard recorded the shutout.
Forest Hill defeated Vicksburg 2-0 in the boys’ game.
Vicksburg will play again Thursday at 5:30 p.m, at home vs. Greenville.
