Ocean Springs Lady Greyhounds are ranked #1 in soccer - WLOX.com - The News for South Mississippi

Nationally ranked Ocean Springs Lady Greyhounds win another soccer game

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

 

Ocean Springs head coach Patrick Hayes had guided his Lady Greyhounds to a 15-0-2 record before a road game at St. Martin Tuesday.

The Lady Greyhounds quickly established why MaxPreps.com has Ocean Springs ranked number one in the state and ninth in the nation.

Savanah Carter gave the Lady Greyhounds an early lead with a solid kick into the Lady Yellow Jackets net.  A few minutes later Carter bagged another goal giving the junior 21 goals on the season.  Freshman Camille Blankenship got the assist on Carter's second goal.

Delaney Gustafson displayed excellent ball skills as she made a couple of moves with the ball and delivered a goal with a left foot into the right corner of the goal.  The senior scored her 11th goal on the season.

Katelyn Williams has a strong leg and she delivered a rocket-shot high up into the net where the St. Martin keeper had no chance at knocking the ball away.

Zakiya Levy made a nice move and kicked the ball high into the net, the keeper made an initial stop, but Rhyan Tompson of Ocean Springs was there with a header that gave the Lady Greyhounds a commanding lead.

Patrick Hayes began pulling some of his starters late in the first half as Ocean Springs grabbed a 6-0 advantage.

The second-half began with a few starters sprinkled in among underclassmen and the lead was expanded with two more goals.

The 8-0 victory was the 16th on the season.  Coach Patrick Hayes says the Lady Greyhounds have the talent to win back-to-back 6A State titles.

"We've been hungry to repeat as state champs." Hayes added,"We knew it's not going to be easy with a bulls eye on our back.  There are many talented teams in Mississippi who can take our reign."

Senior Katelyn Williams said,"We're really working hard to repeat and this team has gone undefeated so far and we're trying to go undefeated this season.  That's never been done before at Ocean Springs."

Khalyn Harmon added,"The key to this year is making sure we do everything from last year plus more."

So far so good for the Lady Greyhounds.  The seniors have supplied leadership and talent and a number of underclassmen have filled the gaps giving Ocean Springs another good shot at a repeat in the 6A State soccer ranks.
