PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast will have two things on its mind Tuesday when the Bulldogs play their final men’s soccer regular-season game.


They’ll be trying to wrap up a home playoff game while also paying tribute to a class that brought Gulf Coast its first MACCC/Region 23 title in a decade at Sophomore Night. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m., and the game will be streamed at https://mgcccbulldogs.com/watch.
