6A Girls Soccer South State Championship Game: Gulfport vs. Oak Grove
The Gulfport Lady Admirals are the defending 6A state champions for a reason, having lost just one game over the last two years and that game was on the road.
But when it comes to home games, winning seems to be the only thing they know how to do.
Gulfport hosting Oak Grove for the right to go to state.
Gulfport defeats Oak Grove 2-1. The Lady Admirals are now going for their third state championship. Head Coach Chris Pryor said, “It only gets harder as you move through the playoffs. I think our battles with George County and Biloxi got us prepared for this, a mental game. I don’t think it was a physical match. I don’t think it was anything else but who wanted it more, who’s going to make the most mistakes and I think that some of the rivalries that we’ve had moving through, kind of prepared us for it. We’ve got some players, yeah, that have played in a state championship last year, but this is a new team, new expectations. The pressure was on. But now, I feel like it’s anybody’s game. It’s a one-game season now.”
Gulfport gets Madison Central in Saturday’s title game set to kick off at 4 p.m. from Brandon High School.
