MMS soccer squad
wins in sudden OT
Martin Middle School’s victory over Trenton was anything but “sudden” as the overtime period it won in might suggest.
The Panthers played through two 10-minute overtime periods and two more five-minute extra cantos before winning 6-5 in “sudden death” penalty kick overtime fashion on Thursday.
Marcus Householder booted what turned out to be the winning kick for the Panthers.
Gian Garma, Barrett Belot and Harrison Capps each also had booted goal for the victorious Panthers.
MMS also played a “B” game against Trenton. The Panthers prevailed 6-0 in that contest.
The Martin Middle School soccer team returned to action on Monday at University School of Jackson.

Adam Reinhard booted a goal for W’view (4-3 on the season).
Charger goalie Scout Edwards made four saves.
“We had trouble put passes together,” W’view boys’ soccer skipper Dan Scates said.
Westview hosts Dyersburg tonight.

The UT Martin women’s tennis team ended its regular-season run on Saturday with a 4-3 loss to Jacksonville State at Skyhawk Varsity Courts.

On Saturday, Johanie Van Zyl and Greenfield product Katie McCall finished the season undefeated (7-0) in OVC doubles play, winning 8-5 at No. 3, but Jacksonville State won the doubles point.
In singles action, Van Zyl also wrapped up a 7-0 slate in OVC singles play with a 6-2, 6-4 win at No. 5 over Juliana Renesto. At No. 6, Anna Marie Herbold defeated Rafaela Wenzel 6-3, 6-1.
