Bulldogs split against Monticello

MILLEDGEVILLE — In less than ideal conditions that included cold temperatures and a light rain, the Georgia Military Prep School soccer teams took on Monticello last night at the Baldwin County Recreation Department’s soccer complex.

Both teams put up strong performances with the girls winning 10-1 and the boys falling by a slim margin of 4-2.

After leading 3-1 at the half, the Lady Bulldogs hit their stride and scored an astonishing seven points in the second half of play against the Lady Hurricanes.

“I hate to run the score up like that, as a matter of fact we were trying not to,” head coach Linda Brown said. “We led at the half, but at that point in time things just started clicking for the girls. We held them shotless in the second half.”

Starting goalie Becky Vaughn defended well for the squad, finishing with 8 saves on the night.

Offensively, Molly Jones and Sarah Margaret Mason led the charge with each scoring a hat trick in addition to an assist apiece.

Lila Mitchell, Melanie Beadles and Kendall Calhoun also contributed with a goal and assist each.

Lady Bulldog Kailey Calhoun notched 3 assists in the contest, while Sinclair Harding came away with one as well.

“We’ve played Monticello fro a few years now, and it’s always fairly close,” Brown said. “I think it was good for the girls after their 8-0 loss at Brookstone in Columbus last Friday. It was good for confidence.”

Similar to the girls, the GMC Prep boys also led at the half on Tuesday night, only to relinquish their lead late in the game to a persistent Hurricane squad.

“It was very evenly matched,” Brown said. “At the half, the guys were up 2-1. As far as the second half, it was still very close. I’m not sure what happened—maybe it was the combination of the cold and rain, and not being used to playing in those conditions.”
