Natchez High-Warren Central

NATCHEZ &045; Even though Vicksburg’s girls soccer team is ranked No. 2 in the state, Natchez High head coach Dennis Hogue believes that Warren Central will be the best team the Lady Bulldogs play this season.

And even though this was a non-division game, the Lady Vikings proved just how good they are in defeating the Lady Bulldogs 11-0 Monday night.

&uot;Their team is very disciplined,&uot; Hogue said. &uot;We anticipated the results. They moved the ball up the field. All their goals were earned. We let everyone get in off the bench and play. Our girls learned by watching and playing.&uot;

In the boys game, the Bulldogs also fell to 0-3 after getting shut out by the Vikings 8-0.

The Bulldogs’ Robin Blake had an opportunity to score on a penalty kick, but his shot hit the bar.
