Page 6B By Will Davis pubhsher@rnyrncr.nef The Mary Persons girls soccer team has clinched a home playoffgame, second place in Region 2-AAAA and has a chance to finish on Thursday with the second-best regular season record in program history.

If Mary Persons gets likely wins over Tatmall Square Academy (1-4-1) on Tues- day and Perry (4-11-1) on Thursday, the girls will finish the regular season 14-3, a record second in program history only to the 16-2 regular season record of 2015.

Later freshman Abby Williamson showed offher cannon leg by drilling a long shot iREporter into the upper 90, making it 2-0. After that, the Lady Cavs tightened the defense and MP couldn't pad its lead despite con- trolling possession much of the game. Then MP was whistled for a foul in the box and Mr. de Sales nailed the penalty kick. Suddenly the Lady Dogs led just 2-1 with 10 minutes to go. Moments later, Davis was pushed outside the box giving NIP a direct kick. Senior Annie Giles lofted a high, arching shot that sailed into the net to give the Bulldogs their final margin of victory, 3-1. Coach Dallas Hall said he was happy with the win but disappointed in the performance. "It wasn't very good," said Hall, adding they may be rusty after taking three weeks off for spring break. The Lady Dogs played better last Friday in a 3-0 home loss to region champion Spalding, the same score of their earlier match in Griffm Hall said it's probably the best they've played against Spalding, currently ranked No. 9 in the state, in his three years at MP, but said the team missed senior defender Sidney Briner, who was out for a chorus concert.
