Gulfport Admirals soccer team turning up the heat offensively

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Coach Henrick Madsen had his 13-5 and 3 Admirals going through a light workout, getting ready for undefeated Terry in the second-round of the 6A State playoffs Saturday afternoon at one.


Tuesday night Gulfport kicked its way past Brandon 3-2, on goals by Jacob Gaddy, Connor Arnoult and Alexander Hopkins.

Coach Henrick his Admirals can celebrate for too long because they'll face another stiff challenge on Saturday hosting Terry, a team that bagged two late goals to upend Biloxi 2-1.

"From what we understand they probably have one of the best players in the state on their team so we've going to deal with him for a whole game, "stated Henrick.

Defense is something the Admirals have relied on all-season long.  It's now time for the Gulfport offense to pick up the pace and they did Tuesday night in the win over Brandon.

Connor Arnoult said, "We've been working on our defense and I feel like our defense is pretty sound and now we're starting to work on our offense because our offensive side is not that good but I think we'll be able to handle them."

Jacob Gaddy added, 'We can't under estimate any team that we play and we have to play our hardest.  We have to be the team that wants it more and we have to come out fighting from the jump."

The Admirals jump back into the fray 1:00 p.m. Saturday facing undefeated Terry in Gulfport.
