|EMCC Women breeze past EMCC in Soccer opener; Men battle to scoreless tie|
SCOOBA, Miss. – Freshman Nikeisha Noel tallied five goals to lead the East Mississippi Community College women’s soccer team to a season-opening 8-1 home triumph over East Central Community College Friday afternoon at the EMCC Soccer Field. The Lions and Warriors battled to a scoreless deadlock in the men’s nightcap.
A member of Trinidad & Tobago’s Under-20 National Team, Noel previously netted four goals for the Lady Lions in their 4-4 exhibition tie against Southwest Mississippi CC on Wednesday. Also scoring for the Lady Lions on Friday were sophomore Heather Boatner of New Albany along with freshman Raycine Clarke of Trinidad and fellow rookie Alex Shelton of West Point with one goal apiece.
In the men’s match, the two teams battled for an extra pair of 10-minute sessions before settling for the stalemate.
Playing eight of their first nine matches of the season at home, second-year head coach Junior Noel’s teams resume their homestand Tuesday (Aug. 26) by playing host to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. The women will play at 2 p.m. followed by men’s action at 4 p.m. on the Scooba campus.
