Four Pearl River women’s soccer standouts honored by MACJC

POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Four players who led the Pearl River women's soccer team to a MACJC South Division title have been honored by the league.

Landing on the All-MACJC squad were Alexa and Maddie Beets (Long Beach), Bailey Riddley (Clinton) and Jade Shaw (Carriere; Pearl River Central). 


Alexa Beets crashed onto the scene as a freshmen helping lead a Wildcat defense that only allowed 0.91 goals per match. Not only did she play a lock-down game, but Beets was also a natural at passing through the lines to get PRCC in on the attack. 

Not to be outdone by her younger sister, Maddie Beets turned in a dominant offensive season. 

Beets scored eight goals on the year while also assisting on six to help lead a Wildcat offense that averaged 2.93 goals per game.

Beets also earned a spot on the South team in the MACJC All-Star game this year. 

Shaw had a sensational debut season for Pearl River, becoming one of the league's most dynamic offensive weapons in a short time. 

The freshmen winger scored five goals and also had an assist. 

Riddley teamed up with Alexa Beets to form one of the state's top centerback tandems. 

The freshman was often active along the back line, deterring attackers before they could get into a rhythm. Like Beets, Riddley was also adept at passing.
