The Tucker Creek Middle School girls soccer team didn’t just play a perfect game. They played a perfect season.

The Mustangs defeated Grover C. Fields 5-0 last week to win the Coastal Middle School Conference championship. Beyond that, the win secured Tucker Creek’s 10-0 season, a season in which the Mustangs didn’t allow a single goal. In all, Tucker Creek outscored its opponents 65-0 on the season.

“It was a pretty easy year,” Tucker Creek coach Trina Pruitt said. “I’ve got a good group of girls.”

Pruitt said the Mustangs played well on defense.

“I had a really strong defense,” she said. “We really didn’t have a lot of shots taken on us. Our defense was just really strong.”

But, she said the offense had a lot to do with the season-long shutout as well.

“Our team possessed the ball a lot better than the other teams,” she said, saying opponets couldn’t score because they didn’t have the ball. “We controlled about 90 percent of every game. I think it’s one of the best passing teams I’ve ever had.”
