The women's soccer era began this past weekend for both the Motlow State Lady Bucks and the Southwest Tennessee Lady Saluquis.  The Lady Bucks played two games on their first day; tying Meridian in a 1-1 deadlock, and then losing to East Central out of Mississippi 1-0.  The Lady Saluquis face Mississippi Gulf Coast and came out on the short end of a 4-0 setback.

Shelby Grow of Motlow would go in the record books as the first Lady Buck to score a goal in their contest against Meridian.  It cam in the 88th minute of the match.  Meridian would tie it a minute later.  They would play two extra 10 minute overtime periods without either team able to take advantage for the win.  Against East Central later that afternoon, Motlow gave up and early goal and was never able to dent the scoreboard.

Southwest Tennessee saw their opponents take charge int eh first period as they scored all four goals in the first period.

The two teams will meet this Saturday in a match to be held at Smyrna High School in Smyrna, Tennessee.
