The Bulldogs improved to 9-2-1 (4-2 in Region 2-AAAA) after Dawson Daniel scored in the first overtime period. The win kept alive MP's long-shot hopes of repeating as region champs, but much work remains to be done. Spalding and MP battled ferociously for 80 minutes but neither team could pierce the goal line on a cloudy night in Griffin. The Bulldogs were playing their first game without senior utility player Jacob Anthony, who was wearing a leg brace. Braydon Martin is already out for the season with a torn ACL, but An- thony is expected to return. Despite being short- handed, the Bulldogs batted hard against the lags, and outshot them 22-20. None of those shots found the back of the net, though, until the first 5-minute overtime period when back-up striker Gabe Medlin fielded a ball in Spalding territory. Two defenders closed in on him in the middle of the field so Medlin immediately fed a perfect roller to the left cor- ner where an unguarded Dawson Daniel was sprint- ing toward the goal, Daniel blasted it into the net and the Bulldogs erupted in celebration. MP held for the final seven minutes of overtime to claim a 1-0 road win, their second shutout in a row. The Jaguars dropped to 2-5-1, and now have one-goal losses to each of MP senior soccer standout Dawson Daniel scored the game-winning goal in the Bulldogs' much-needed 1-0 overtime road win at Spalding on Friday. The Bulldogs will return home on Tuesday, March 27 against Upson-Lee. (Photo/Will Davis) the three region leaders, Upson-Lee, Perry and ME Keeper Brock Hulsey had 12 saves for the Bulldogs and Medlin had the assist on Dawson's goal.

It wasn't the beatdown that MP gave the Raiders last time (5-1) but sophomore Julian Rivera connected on two goals as the Bulldogs got the region win.
