ACCS girls soccer loses to Hartfield

NATCHEZ — Even though nearly two inches of rain fell on Friday and even more rain came down on Saturday, Adams County Christian School’s varsity girls’ soccer team still played host to the ACCS Girls’ Soccer Shootout.

“It was a rainy day, but a great day for soccer was had by all,” ACCS head coach Jimmy Allgood said.

In the first game of the day’s action at Bobby Marks Stadium, the Hartfield Academy Lady Hawks shut out the ACCS Lady Rebels 3-0. That was the main game of the day, but it was not part of the tournament. That loss put ACCS at 0-2 overall.

As far as games played during the ACCS Girls’ Soccer Shootout, the Lady Rebels took a pair of games from the Brookhaven Academy Lady Cougars, winning by scores of 3-2 in Game 1 and 2-1 in Game 2. However, those games do not count toward their overall record.

“Overall, I was very impressed after that first match,” Allgood said. “Our girls seemed to wake up and play very aggressive soccer. It showed because they won their other matches today.”

In the first game, Jordan Parker scored two goals and Karigan Eidt added a goal. In the second game, Parker and Kaci Guedon each had a goal.

Then the Lady Rebels’ junior varsity team took to the field and defeated Concordia Science & Math 2-0. Once again, both Parker and Guedon put the ball in the back of the net.

“Anna Kate Scott had a fantastic day at keeper,” Allgood said. “The rest of the gang, we suffered a few injuries, but hopefully we’ll be ready to go Wednesday.”

ACCS’s varsity soccer team travels to Pearl for a 3 p.m. game that day against Park Place Christian Academy.
