HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A strong second-half lifted the Lady Mustangs past Hattiesburg on Wednesday night and into the second round of the playoffs.
West Jones defeated the Lady Tigers 4-1 in Hattiesburg. Three different Lady Mustangs scored goals, led by junior Natalie Allgood’s two scores.
Big saying is it's amazing what we can accomplish when no one cares who gets the credit,” said West Jones head coach Craig Winship. “And that’s how this team has been playing lately. It doesn’t matter who scores the goals, as long as we do. The celebration is just as hard."
"This game, we all knew it was going to be really, really hard,” said West Jones senior centre-back Alyssa Ezell. “We knew we were going to have to man-mark [Hattiesburg’s Kendyl Terrell] because she’s a great player. But we all worked really hard and we just came together as a team."
West Jones visits West Harrison on Saturday at 1 p.m.
