Mississippi Fuego FC Gears Up for Knoxville Lady Force on Sunday

Posted: Updated:

The Mississippi Fuego FC looks to notch its first win of the season with determination.

"We're just going to play our hardest, we're going to come out strong and see what we can do," says Fuego center midfielder Bridget Dennis.

The team recorded a 3-3 tie in its first game of the season, but its current three-game losing skid leaves the Fuego winless four games into the season.

Despite the early season struggles, the Fuego are in position to move into a tie for third place in their division with a win this weekend, as well as an Alabama FC loss.

The Fuego host the Knoxville Lady Force for the first time this season on Sunday.

Fuego head coach Danny Owens talks about the team's mindset heading into the game.

"Just being ready to go from the start, and I think being able to use everybody. It's going to be hot, we're playing in the afternoon, so just getting everybody ready to go and giving us minutes when they're in."

The Fuego are in the midst of an offensive slump, only scoring one goal during their three-game losing streak.

The gameplan for Sunday is to put balls in the back of the net.

"We've had chances, we've hit the post, we've hit the keeper, so it's just a matter of hitting the net this time," says Owens.

"We're trying to get it to our outside players, so they can cross it in on the ground and it's easy for us to get it in the goal," says Dennis.

Dennis describes her role in the upcoming contest.

"As center mid you want to be first to the ball so that's what I'm going to try to do - win every ball in the air, on the ground, whatever."

The William Carey Senior also shares the key to victory for Sunday's matchup.

"Play our hearts out, and not to quit."
