MERIDIAN —    Freshman MeMe Huff entered the weekend needing five goals to break the single season goals record at Meridian Community College and most would think that reaching the record in one game would be nearly impossible, but the possible occurred at C.D. Smith Field Saturday afternoon. Huff scored five goals to secure the record and lead MCC to an 8-1 victory over Southwest Mississippi Community College.

    Huff scored the record breaking goal in the 79th minute of the match to break the school record which was set by Holly Head in 2007. Huff scored two goals in the first half and scored the remainder of her goals in the second half, to go along with one assist in the match.

    Taylor Hanes, Merrick Watkins, and Haley Hegwood each had one goal apiece in the victory for the Lady Eagles. Freshman Kayla Phillips also added an assist for MCC.

    MCC (11-2, 5-2) will return to action Wednesday evening for another key MACJC match with Mississippi Gulf Coast on the road beginning at 5:30 p.m. MCC will then travel to Jones next Saturday to battle the 10th ranked Lady Bobcats at 2 p.m. MCC will look avenge a 1-0 loss earlier this season at the hands of JCJC.

    The MCC men will hit the road as well Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. against Mississippi Gulf Coast and then travel to Ellisville next Saturday to tangle with Jones at 4:30 p.m.
