  • Lady Knights' offense stalls

    The Marion County High School girls' soccer team continues to struggle to score, despite numerous close calls at the net.

    With sophomore Makayla Epps out for at least a week, it may not improve immediately.

    Epps went down with a knee injury Thursday against Taylor County and will remain out for a week, according to Lady Knights Head Coach Hart Hagan.

    The Lady Knights offense has picked up production though it hasn't resulted in goals. They have routinely out shot opponents by three or four shots to one.
