MCC soccer closes on road

By Staff
From staff reports
October 7, 2004
Meridian Community College's men's and women's soccer teams will close the season with a tough row to hoe.
The Eagles and Lady Eagles play their final regular-season games on the road. Both teams will play Gulf Coast on Saturday, Jones County Junior College on Oct. 15 and Copiah-Lincoln on Oct. 20. The MCC men's squad takes on East Central Community College in Decatur on Oct. 12.
The Eagles and Lady Eagles lost their final regular-season home matches on Wednesday to Pearl River. MCC's men's team fell 3-0, and the women lost 2-0.
The Eagles hold a 6-6 overall mark and are 5-2 in the South Division. The Lady Eagles have a 7-6 overall record and are 3-2 in the South.

Tough challenge for Lions
As if East Mississippi Community College needed anything else to worry about.
Northwest Mississippi Community College, 5-0 and ranked No. 3 in the nation, will carry some extra incentive into tonight's game against the winless Lions.
Bobby Franklin, the Rangers' long-time head coach, will become just the fifth coach in NJCAA history to reach 200 wins if Northwest tops East Mississippi tonight.
The Rangers host the Lions in Senatobia. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Latest POWs
Pearl River had two players selected MACJC Players of the Week following last week's 37-30 South Division win at Hinds.
Defensive back LeVance Richmond had seven tackles and three interceptions to earn Defensive Player of the Week honors, while linebacker Glentrelle Ware blocked two field goals to earn special team honors.

Wounded Lady Eagles
In the last week, MCC's women's soccer team lost two players for the rest of the season and may be without its starting goal keeper.
Lady Eagles forward Candace Andrews and midfielder Bethany Spidle were lost for the season in Sept. 30's match against Gulf Coast. Andrews' right big toe was broken when a Gulf Coast player took her down with a slide tackle, and Spidle injured her MCL in the game.
MCC goal keeper Viveca Pavon was cut above her eye and had her nose broken in a collision with a player from Bossier Parish in the Lady Eagles' 2-1 win last Sunday. Pavon will see a specialist today to find out if she can play any more games this season.

McMillin tied for kick-scoring lead
East Central's Jay McMillin wasn't supposed to do the place-kicking for the Warriors this fall, but with Ryan Gale still nursing a groin injury, McMillin has had to fill in.
Through five games, the Winston Academy grad is 8-of-10 in extra points and 6-of-9 in field goals. McMillin is tied with Hinds' kicker for the kick-scoring lead with 26 points.
