The Greenwood High School soccer girls and boys soccer teams continue to make strides while competing in perhaps the toughest conference in the state, the 7A/6A Central. The Bulldogs are 5-4 overall and fourth in the league standings, while the Lady ‘Dogs are 1-5 in conference play. The GHS girls have battled injuries all season and according to head coach Andrew Post, “Are much better than their record indicates.”

On April 8th both teams took on Russellville at Greenwood’s Smith-Robinson Stadium. The Lady Bulldogs won 2-1 and the GHS boys earned a 1-0 victory over the Cyclones. On April 11th they traveled to Conway, where the Greenwood girls lost 2-0 and the boys fell 3-2.

Last Tuesday, April 15th, the GHS boys traveled to Little Rock Parkview and won in a rout, 6-0. Then last Thursday both teams hosted Fort Smith Southside, with the Lady Bulldogs dropping a 2-0 contest while the GHS boys won 2-1.

Regarding his boys’ squad, Coach Post said, “They are playing very well lately and look to increase their wins in conference against Little Rock Hall this Friday.”

Both teams traveled to Van Buren this past Monday for a non-conference match up. Results were not available at press time.
