Sisters take down priests 6-4 in charity soccer game

Nuns vs. priests in soccer?

Sisters rule.

Nuns in South Mississippi took on priests in a charity soccer game on Tuesday afternoon to benefit St. Vincent de Paul School, a parochial elementary school on Espy Avenue in Long Beach.

Of course, there were some ringers on the sisters' squad -- three parishoners and a student disguised in habits -- as well as a few female students.

The priests, gathered from around the diocese, had to fend for themselves.

Wearing habits and T-shirts, the sisters defeated the priests 6-4 in the match.
