By Stan Caldwell, Pearl River Community College Sports Information

Kobe Lie’s work in goal during last week’s Mississippi Association of Community and Junior College/Region 23’s men’s soccer championships not only earned the Pearl River Community College redshirt freshman state-wide recognition, but also national honors.

Tuesday, Lie was named MACJC “Goalkeeper of the Week” for the third time this season. Wednesday, Lie was selected National Junior College Athletic Association “Goalkeeper of the Week” for the second time this season.

Lie, a product of North Forrest High School, was the backend foundation in the Wildcats’ run to their sixth state soccer championship, making 26 saves in three games.

He came up with 10 saves in the first round against Hinds Community College in a 1-0 overtime victory in Poplarville and followed with five saves against East Central Community College in a 3-0 semifinal win.

Lie capped his performance by stonewalling Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in the final, finishing with 11 saves in a game that ended in a 0-0 tie after regulation and overtime.

Lie then stopped the first two shots he saw in the shootout as the Wildcats took the crown 4-1.

PRCC (10-6-1) will play Laredo (Texas) Community College (12-5-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday in a semifinal of the NJCAA South Region Tournament in Tyler, Texas.

Mississippi Gulf Coast (13-3-1) also advanced to the South Region, and will take on host Tyler (Texas) Community College (17-2) in the other semifinal.

The semifinals winners will play at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, with the winner advancing to the NJCAA Division I National Tournament, scheduled Nov. 13-18 at Prescott, Ariz.
