Paul's out of louisian- and the defending 6-a champs, - ocean springs.- although the admirals' season - saw interruptions - due to covid, causing several - schedule adjustments... - boys head coach patrick - wadsworth says his team is read- for the post season.- - "i think all coaches want to se- their - players and their teams firing- on all cylinders, playing their- best soccer right - before they go into playoffs.
