The Morgan County High School girls soccer team had a busy week as the Lady Dogs started to close out their season and the postponements from the first half of the season were made up. A pair of region matches and a non-region affair to close the week saw the Lady Dogs improve their overall record as well as their region standings.
Last Monday, the Lady Musketeers of the Academy of Richmond County invaded Bill Corry stadium for a region contest. Neither team could get traction in the match and a corner kick placed on the back post by freshman Camp Stamps was the deciding factor in the match. The Lady Dogs took the match 1-0.
Last Tuesday night, the Lady Dogs clad in neon kits for Jacob Martin Night put on a clinic against Hephzibah and closed the night with their region record unblemished after a 10-0 win.
MCHS could not capitalize on a ton of shots early in the match, but Rylee Bernard opened the scoring in the first half with a blast from outside the box. There were seven different goal scorers on the night with Bernard and Anna Jenkins each putting in a pair. Avery Mize scored on a PK and was joined by Sidda Outlaw, Drew Williams, Kaily Mitchell, and Loft Cathey on the scorecard for the night. The win moved the Lady Dogs to 6-0 in region play which they have dominated outsourcing region foes by a margin of 30-0.
The Lady Dogs celebrated a trio of seniors as a part of the senior night festivities on Thursday. Anna Jenkins, Amethyst Nigh, and McKenzie Larate were honored during a ceremony after the match against Putnam County that the Lady Dogs won 8-1.
Larate decided to start her own party, scoring the first two goals of the match in quick fashion, scoring in the third and 17th minute of the match. Larate was joined on the scoreboard by Lofton Cathey who scored a pair of goals and by Avery Mize, Kaily Mitchell, and Sidda Outlaw who scored a goal a piece on their way to the 8-1 win over the Lady War Eagles.
The Lady Dogs are back in action on Wednesday, April 14 at the Academy of Richmond County for a game that was postponed due to rain earlier this season.
