The East Central Community College Lady Warriors' 2021 home opener April 6 ended in a 1-1 draw with the Pearl River Community College Lady Wildcats.
The tie moves the Lady Warriors to 1-0-1 on the young season.
Pearl River was on the board early as Briana Carr poured in an unassisted goal just 12 minutes into the match.
The Lady Warriors eventually hit back with just three minutes remaining in the first half as Seline Decoteau (Pascagoula) fielded a great pass from Brendaisha Garrett (Gautier). Decoteau found the back of the net knotting the game one-all.
The second half was a defensive showcase as the two squads both fought for position. Late in the second half, the Lady Warriors had a great look for a potential go-ahead goal, but the shot missed just wide right.
Nicole O'Neill (Dublin, Ireland) and Ameris Taylor (Ocean Springs) led the Lady Warriors in shots with two each, while five different Lady Warriors post shots on goal. Olivia Clark(Decatur) played all 90 minutes plus the extra time in goal and posted two saves.
