Lady Mustangs down Starkville in The Show
December 17, 2012West Jones Jr Sr High School
The Lady Mustangs opened the Mississippi Showcase of Soccer with their first match of the year against a 5A opponent in the Starkville Lady Jackets. Junior forward Payton Roney opened the scoring in the fifth minute of play when fellow junior forward Beth Coleman played a spot on through ball behind the Starkville backline. Roney hammered the shot into the upper left corner. Just 35 seconds later, Coleman would steal the trailed kickoff and slot the ball to an on-running Roney. Halfway through the second half, a Lady Jacket forward would get a breakaway on the Mustang defense and convert the shot cutting the lead to 2-1. West would put the game away late with another goal from Roney off a long pass from 8th grade fullback Maddie McLeod. Sophomore keeper Abby Baravik would make nine saves for the win.
