I IIII IIIIII i I 0 By Will Davis The Mary Persons boys soccer team dropped to 3-9 (1-6 in region) last week after losses to Spalding and West Laurens. A 1-0 home loss to the Raiders last Tuesday was particularly tough because it virtually eliminates the Bulldogs from the playoffs for the first time in many years, as MP drops to fifth place in the very strong Region 2-AAAA. West Laurens scored a goal less than a minute into the contest on an attack from the left side that went unguarded, and MP never could score an equalizer despite controlling possession for long stretches. MP played most of the game without five starters. Keeper Aubrey Peterman was still recovering from a concussion suffered two weeks ago. Austin Starr collided with a Raider player early in the game and wound up spend- ing three nights in the hospital with a lacer- ated spleen. Starr is likely done for the season. Tanner Lee and Devin Avant were serving suspensions for red cards. And striker Julian Rivera has been battling an ankle injury. That's the kind of season its been for the MP boys, who haven't scored a goal since a March i win at Howard and have now lost four straight, and nine of their last 10 games after opening the year with two victories. On Frida) the short-handed Bulldogs were mercy-ruled by Spalding 10-0 in Griffin. It was the second time in a week the Bull- dogs were mercy-ruled. On Friday, March 8 in Thomaston, the Bulldogs suffered a 10-0 loss to the No. I ranked Upson-Lee Knights in a game ended 10 minutes early due to the mercy rule. The Bulldogs had lost to Upson- Lee just 3-0 in Forsyth on Feb. 26. On March 5 the Dogs lost to Perry 9-0 at Lancaster Field. The Bulldogs were slated to play at non-re- gion Locust Grove on Tuesday and then host Howard at 7:30 p.m. on Thursda)n MP won the first game against the winless Huskies 5-1. After Thursday's game, the Bulldogs will have a badly needed two weeks off for spring break, perhaps returning to full strength for the final stretch of the season.
