MILLEDGEVILLE — Originally slated to play last Friday before the weather decided otherwise, Georgia Military Prep School and Baldwin High took to the soccer field Tuesday night, March 11 in their make-up contests at BHS.
In the girls’ game, the Lady Bulldogs were able to capitalize on multiple scoring opportunities to come away with a 2-0 win over BHS.
“I’m certainly happy with the win, of course,” GMC Prep girls’ head coach Linda Brown said. “The first half they dominated—they were down in Baldwin’s half of the field the majority of the game, but I was a little frustrated. I could tell they were frustrated as well because they weren’t making any shots, and we had plenty of shots. In the second half it finally started coming together for them a little bit.”
Molly Jones and Sarah Margaret Mason both snagged goals for GMC Prep in Tuesday’s win, with teammates Lila Mitchell and Melanie Beadles adding assists.
To the Bravettes’ credit, the Lady Bulldogs found the back of the net only twice out of 22 shots on goal.
“My keeper, Amber Jones did well, especially in the first half,” BHS girls’ head coach Marya Ray said. “She held them to nothing, and this is her first year playing soccer.”
Ray admits BHS attempted a new scheme against GMC Prep, and continued to improve.
“We tried a different formation tonight at the suggestion of the captains, and I think we’ve learned some things,” Ray said. “We keep learning things every game. I’m proud of the way they’re performing and they’re working together.”
GMC Prep also worked on some new things on Tuesday night, and look to continue their momentum from the shut out against the Bravettes.
“Overall, it was a beautiful day—they enjoyed playing in the warmer weather,” Brownd said. “They’re slowly improving in terms of their passing and some of the things we’ve been working on as a team to help end up with a better second half of the season than what we started with, and this one brings us to 3-3.”
