Boys: Picayune 4 Gulfport 3 (contributed by Bill Hillery)
The Picayune Maroon Tide closed out the season with a win over the 8th ranked Gulfport Admirals.
Joe Burrage started the scoring early in the game when he re-directed a Britton Fortenberry corner kick into the back of the Admiral's net. Gulfport answered right back and after 40 minutes they went to the half tied, 1-1. Senior Lorenzo Woods got the second half started, when he took a long pass from Britton Fortenberry and beat the Admiral keeper one on one. Mitchell Jacobs scored the next goal when he one timed a Chad Detillier cross. Gulfport scored next trying to stay in the game making the score 3-2, but Juan Barajas scored with his head on a cross from Lorenzo Woods. Gulfport got a late goal but couldn't get the equalizer as time ran out.
Coach Steve Jacobs is very proud of the way his team performed this year, "While our record is 7-6-2,
I purposely chose a difficult schedule this year and I think the team performed very well."
With only 3 seniors on the team this team looks to be even better next year.
Girls: Gulfport 3 Picayune 0
The Lady Tide finished their season with a 3-0 loss to the Lady Admirals. The Ladies have no seniors and with several Junior High players seeing action, this young team will be around for several more years.
