On Friday night the Picayune Maroon Tide (5-8) soccer team lost to the Long Beach (9-2-1) Bearcats in a 1-0 match.
“The boys played a better game had chances but couldn’t find the back of the net,” said Head Coach Brandon Butler.
The Bearcats scored late in the second half. Maroon Tide freshmen Jake Naquin and Payton Harper had the best score opportunity but couldn’t capitalize.
The Maroon Tide will host the Pearl River Central Blue Devils this Friday at 7:15.
The Blue Devils is a physical team, but Butler is confident his players can pull out a win and keep the Maroon Tide in the playoff run.
