BHS boys get shootout win over Franklin County

Here is a look at area high school soccer action from earlier in the week.

Brookhaven High

Tuesday night on a chilly King Field the Brookhaven High Panthers (2-2) handed Franklin County (6-1-1) their first loss of the season via a penalty shoot-out.

The Panthers and Bulldogs were tied at 2-2 after regulation. In the shootout BHS held a 3-2 advantage with the final FC player up to kick.

Freshman goalkeeper Bryce Smith got two hands on the ball to bat it into the bottom of the crossbar. The ball deflected down, did not cross the goal line and was collected by Smith to preserve the win for BHS.

Ashton Ogletree and Jack Bower scored the regulation goals for BHS. In the girls’ game Franklin County (7-1) took a 7-0 win over BHS (0-3-1).

Brookhaven High is scheduled to host Wesson Monday on King Field.

West Lincoln

West Lincoln stepped into division play Tuesday night as they took on Wesson for a pair of Region 7-Class I matches.

In the girls’ contest the Lady Bears (4-1-1) got their first ever win over Wesson (1-4) in the short history of their program by a 2-1 margin.

Camryn Summerall scored a pair of goals off assists from Cara Jarancik for coach Dane Hodges.

In the boys’ match West Lincoln (5-2) posted their third straight shutout with a 3-0 victory over the Cobras (1-2).

Coach Jeremy Johnson saw Briar Hamilton, Chase Spring and Noah Addison score a goal apiece to pace the Bear offense.

West Lincoln will travel to McComb Monday for a pair of matches.

Loyd Star

Coach Jordan Lea and his Hornets had little trouble with McComb Tuesday as they whipped the Tigers 7-0 in the opening girls’ match and 4-0 in boys’ play.

It was a big night of goal scoring for people with the last name McCurley as Mary Claire McCurley scored five goals for her team and then saw her brother Hayden get two goals and an assist in the finale.

Macey East and Alli Ferguson chipped in a goal each as the Loyd Star girls moved to 6-2 on the season.

“We’ve still got room for improvement, but we’re getting there,” said Lea.

Luis Benavidez and Cooper Creel each had a goal and keeper Nathan Nusbaum kept a clean sheet in net for the Hornets (3-3-1) in their win.

“We looked like a much different team in the second half,” said Lea. “The defense played well for the duration of the game and shut their attack down consistently.”

Loyd Star and Bogue Chitto are set to meet up for the first time this season Monday at BC.

Bogue Chitto

It was a goal bonanza for coach Shane Nippe and his Bogue Chitto teams Tuesday as they blasted Hazlehurst with identical 8-1 final scores.

For the girls’ team (2-2) Abby Elliot and Tiffanie Thames scored multiple goals with Makaila Coleman and Mollie Grace Bonds adding scores as well.

The Bobcat boys’ team (3-1) got two goals each from Yosvin Hernandez, Andrew Merrell and J.T. McNeese. Carson Price and Yojan Hernandez also added one goal apiece.

Brookhaven Academy

Soccer season has begun for the Brookhaven Academy boys’ team and this week they jumped out to a 2-0 record with a pair of wins over Parklane Academy.

Tuesday in a 4-0 victory Corey Case scored a pair of goals to lead the team coached by Randy Spring and Clint Rounsville.

Rob Johnson and Logan Alexander also added goals Tuesday for the Cougars.

In a return game Thursday John Rivers Brown got a pair of goals and Case added another in a 3-1 victory.

The Cougars travel to face Porters Chapel Tuesday in Vicksburg.
