Lady Eagles Soccer Team Notches First Win of Young Season

Posted: Updated:

The Southern Miss women's soccer team notched it's first win of the season on Sunday.

The 6-0 shutout win over Mississippi Valley State marks the team's first victory since Oct. 5, ending the team's seven game winless streak dating back to last season.

"Every time you win it's huge in terms of your confidence, in terms of comradery, in terms of the psyche of the players," says first-year Southern Miss head women's soccer coach Mohammed El-Zare.

But the Lady Eagles spend little time celebrating their undefeated start.

Instead, they focus on the process leading up to the team's home opener.

"There's a long road to the end of the season, to the conference play, so we're taking every game at a time," says El-Zare. "Right now our focus is on Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Friday, so we're training today and we're going to go over some of the things we need to get better at."

The game kicks off at 5 p.m. on Friday at the Southern Miss soccer fields.
