Poor weather hinders Kosciusko soccer teams

By ELTON HAYES,

Kosciusko’s soccer programs have been plagued with poor field conditions that haven’t allowed them to play their full schedule of games since returning to the pitch from the holiday break.

The squads, however, were able to get in one game apiece last week.

The Kosciusko (5-8, 1-0 Region 3-4A) boys lost a 2-1 home contest to Mooreville on Friday.

Dan Lindsay scored the Whippets’ lone goal on an assist from Alexis Hernandez.

The Lady Whippets fell 7-0 to the Mooreville Lady Troopers. Kosciusko (7-7, 1-0 Region 3-4A) had a couple penalties in the box that led to Lady Trooper goals.

Kosciusko coach Greg Cooper attributed some of the miscues to having a lull in his team’s schedule.

“It’s been really, really, wet, in January, so we’ve only played one game,” Cooper said of recent field conditions. “Both of (the teams) are looking really good moving forward. We have been able to solidify and be district champs, so moving forward, hopefully we can get our two games in this week. Coming back from Christmas and you only get one game and then you have another almost a week and a half off, it’s just hard to keep that mentality of playing.”

Both teams have home games this week against West Point (Tuesday) and Meridian (Friday).
