With their 1-0 win over Lake Cormorant on Jan. 25, the Center Hill High School boys soccer team is now division champs.

“It was a good all-around game and when we won I felt really good,” goalkeeper Dustin Brown said.

The Mustangs will play Olive Branch on Feb. 1, he said.

“I feel like we could beat Olive Branch if we keep focus and try our best,” said Brown, a junior who had 11 saves against Lake Cormorant. “Diego Valenzuela scored the game winning goal with an assist by Erick Mendoza.”

The team’s record is now 16-2.

“We remain undefeated in division with five wins and zero losses,” boys head coach Andrew Yeoman said. “The division playoff would happen on Feb. 6 if we defeat Olive Branch.”

UPDATE: Since defeating Lake Cormorant Jan. 25, the Mustangs lost to DeSoto Central 0-1 on Jan. 30 and beat Olive Branch 2-1 on Jan. 31. They will host Germantown High School of Madison, Mississippi, at 5 p.m. on Feb. 6. The team record is 17-3.
