Gulfport claims 6A soccer title
They say to be the best, you’ve gotta beat the best and that’s exactly what the Gulfport soccer team did on Saturday for the second time this season to claim its second ever state championship. The Admirals were going up against their former coach, Cecil Hinds, who led them to their last state title in 2010. This time, Henrik Madsen guided them to the crown. Gulfport also took down the Jaguars in the regular season, 2-0, leaving no doubt about its status as top dog over its class 6A foe that won it all as recently as 2016. Long Beach boys and girls are still in search of their first-ever respective titles with the Lady Bearcats falling in a golden goal overtime period. The St. Stanislaus Rock-A-Chaws bring home the hardware with a 1-0 victory.

MSHAA Soccer State Championship Preview: St. Stanislaus
St. Stanislaus is no stranger to the pinnacle of high school soccer, having won nine state championships dating back to 1996. Even recently, the Rock-A-Chaws have been a mainstay in the Metro despite a brief absence. Last year, SSC failed to win South State for the first time since 2013, ending a three year run of titles under former Coach Ryan Joiner. Danny Patton is now leading the charge for the Rock-A-Chaws who are perhaps more battle-tested than they were at this time last season. 4A Stanislaus is 5-2-1 against 6A competition in 2018, having won 12 games in a row, dating back to December. That being said, the Rocks have some unfinished business to attend to when they take on Amory on Saturday. "They work hard and they hate to lose. I mean they're a very skilled team, and they'll match it with effort. And that's why we've beat the 6A schools that we haven't been successful playing over the past few years, and this year it's been different. We've pretty much taken over, and we work hard,” said Coach Patton. St. Stanislaus Center Midfielder Beau Rimmer said, “To win State it sort of becomes something that maybe you don't think too much about, just like naturally. We're playing, we're going to win State. And then last year when it didn't happen I was devastated, and I know my teammates were also. And we came out this year and really held that as a priority for us." Stanislaus and Amory kick things off from Brandon at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
 
MHSAA Soccer State Championships Preview: Gulfport Admirals
The last time the Gulfport Boys Soccer team won a state championship this year was 2010 and the coach was Cecil Hinds. Fast-forward to 2018 and he’s now the head coach at Madison Central which just so happens to be Gulfport’s opponent on Saturday. This time around, the Admirals are led by Henrik Madsen who brought Gulfport its first South State championship since the final year of the Hinds era in 2011. The two schools are also familiar with one another because of a regular season match-up in January which kicked off Gulfport’s current ten game winning streak with a 2-0 victory over the Jaguars. The Admirals are also in the midst of pitching seven consecutive shutouts which is serving as a huge confidence booster leading up to the rematch of all rematches on Saturday. "There's a belief I think from them that they're finally good enough to do it and they're doing it together, which is the big thing. I mean we've always, it's Gulfport, there's always been a lot of talent, but this year they're really bought in to the whole team concept of working hard and working for each other,” said Coach Madsen. Eli Cupp said, "In the previous years we've had elements we needed, but not everything. I think this year between the leadership, everyone is stepping up and just the talent we have, I think everything is falling into place. We just have everything we need for a championship.") Christopher Bruni said, "It would just be the perfect way to end it. I've been dreaming about this ever since I started high school, so it's just great to see it come into play." Gulfport and Madison Central will get things going from Ridgeland at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

MHSAA Soccer State Championships Preview: Long Beach Bearcat
The Long Beach boys team elected not to go on camera, leading up to their state championship bid on Saturday. That doesn’t make the Bearcats any less of a threat to win it all. They’ll be taking on Saltillo in their first ever trip to the title game which kicks off at 6 p.m. in Brandon. The Bearcats have won back-to-back district crowns and have 31 wins over the past three years after logging just nine of those the previous five years combined.

MHSAA Soccer State Championships: Long Beach Lady Bearcats
Of the eight boys and girls soccer teams representing the South in Saturday’s state championship games, half of them, hail from the Gulf Coast. In class 5A both Long Beach teams are vying for a title. Ever since their three year run at the crown from 2005 to 2007, the Long Beach girls team has been left out of the state championship picture, but this year the Lady Bearcats are framing their own destiny with the chance to capture the first title in school history. It’s something they’ve been preparing for all season long, entering Saturday’s game versus Germantown with an undefeated record of 20-0-1. Head Coach Neil Scott says their time is now. "Yeah, we knew from the end of last season that we were having a strong team this coming year. We had high expectations, we've literally got a goals checklist in our locker room. State Championship is obviously a goal, we don't think that's too high of an expectation. It's not always an expectation, sometimes it's wishful thinking. But with this team it's something that we think we're capable of." Long Beach right back Lauren Bennett said, “"Winning it for Long Beach, like Long Beach girls soccer has never won a state championship. So like winning that for Long Beach is going to be like a big, good feeling for us and like a good push for the next years." Long Beach and Germantown square off from Brandon at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
