The new Decatur Lady Bulldog varsity girls' soccer team faced a tough opponent March 1 as they squared off against the Locust Grove Lady Pirates for a scrimmage match at Bulldog Stadium in Decatur. Both teams were in the first year of competition and this match would lay the foundation for the season to come. The first 20 minutes of the match belonged to the Lady Pirates as they managed to get five shots past Decatur's goalkeeper, Deily Godoy. However, Godoy made over 10 saves throughout the first half, preventing the Lady Pirates from achieving a blowout over the Lady Bulldogs.
