MGCCC women pound SW Tennessee

The Mississippi Gulf Coast women's soccer team cruised to its second road win in as many days Saturday, blasting Southwest Tennessee 4-0 in Memphis.


Erin Longsden (So., Droylsden Academy/Manchester, England) had a pair of first-half goals to propel the Lady Bulldogs (2-1). She tied for the team lead in goals last season, but had been struggling had seen a slew of shots bang off the posts early this year.


"Today was really big, giving her confidence," Gulf Coast coach Jackie Rhodes said. "She scored a PK and then two minutes later she scored another goal."


L.T. Massey (So., Oak Grove/Hattiesburg) pushed Gulf Coast's lead to 3-0 in the second half before Curissa Beatty (Fr., Biloxi/Biloxi) got her second in as many days to close out the scoring.


"We played really well," Rhodes said. "We were able to move around a lot of players to get some chances on goal. We were able to capitalize."


Chascidi Martin (Fr., Terry/Byram) registered her second shutout in as many days.


"These two games this weekend were huge for us going forward," Rhodes said. "We've got some confidence going in to a big game against Jones on Friday."


Gulf Coast opens MACJC South Division play Friday when the Lady Bulldogs travel to Jones County. The division home opener is Sept. 5 when Pearl River visits the MGCCC Soccer Complex.
