For the second time in as many weeks, No. 6 Pearl River’s shot-stopper Maddux Francis (Poplarville) has been selected as the Mississippi Association of Community Colleges Conference Goalkeeper of the Week.

Francis earned the award after another great week in goal for the Wildcats (2-0-1 overall; 1-0 MACCC South)

The William Carey transfer earned two wins in goal on the week after making one save against East Central in an 8-0 victory and four saves against then No. 4 Jones College in a thrilling 1-0 win.

Francis claimed the award one week earlier after making seven saves in a matchup with NJCAA Division I foe LSU Eunice.

The winner of the MACCC’s award is entered into consideration for the NJCAA Goalkeeper of the Week award.

The Wildcats hit the road to take on Southwest on Tuesday at 4 p.m. before returning to the PRCC Soccer Complex to host Meridian at 7 p.m.
The contest against Meridian will be dedicated to the life of Cayce Seal. The Wildcats will hold a ceremony to retire Seal’s number and all proceeds from the game will go to the scholarship fund that was set up in his memory.

Single match tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time to avoid lines.
