Lady Bulldogs maul Meridian

Kaitlyn Harwell scored her first three goals of the season, and Mississippi Gulf Coast shut out Meridian 5-0 on the road Wednesday.


Erin Longsden (So., Droylsden Academy/Manchester, England) put the Lady Bulldogs out in front with a ninth-minute penalty kick. Harwell added her first before halftime, and Jess Shepherd scored with 30 minutes left for a 3-0 advantage.


Harwell (Fr., Stone/Wiggins) closed out her hat trick before the final whistle.


The Lady Bulldogs' game scheduled for Sunday against Navarro has been canceled. They will return to action Tuesday at Mississippi College.


Their next home game will be Sept. 22 when Northwest visits for a non-division game.
