BRANDON — Brandon coach Randy West went with a formation he normally use and, well, it paid off.

Behind the play of the forwards and the goal-keeping of Cole Turner, the Bulldogs shut out Biloxi 3-0 in the first round of the MHSAA Boys Class 6A Soccer Playoffs at Bulldog Stadium on Tuesday night.

Brandon (11-2-2) will travel to Gulfport in the second round of the Class 6A playoffs on Saturday.

“We were anxious at the beginning of the game because we’ve been playing so well since Christmas,” said coach West. “We played really well tonight. We were quick to the ball and Biloxi is a good team. They changed formations at halftime and we adjusted to it well.”

Brandon jumped out to quick 1-0 lead in the first 10 minutes of the game on a breakaway goal by Jalen Ballard.

Biloxi had a couple of scoring chances in the first half to tie the game, but Turner came up with the saves on both shots.
