An early barrage of goals was too much for the DeSoto County girls’ junior varsity soccer team to overcome in the Nov. 7 game against Lemon Bay. After trailing 6-0 at halftime, the Bulldogs held Lemon Bay scoreless in the second half, but could not make up the deficit and lost by the same 6-0 score.

The Mantas’ Caitlin Montgomery scored less than 30 seconds after the opening whistle as six different Mantas found the back of the net. Last year Montgomery scored six goals on her own in the first matchup of the season. In the rematch at Lemon Bay near the end of the season, the Bulldogs had improved so much they only lost 2-1. The Bulldogs will travel to Englewood Jan. 10 for this season’s rematch.
