Soccer 'Dogs go for another region title


Both Thomasville soccer squads have a chance to lock up 1-AA titles with victories over Berrien on Thursday.

The Lady ‘Dogs, who remain undefeated in the region, are going for their second championship in a row and 11th in the past twelve years. 

Thomasville encountered a near identical scenario heading into this game a year ago, needing a road win over the Lady Rebels to secure the title. 

The Lady ‘Dogs narrowly notched a 3-2, come-from-behind victory, then turned to the 1-AA rule book to break a tie, going all the way to the sixth procedure, which determines the champs by goal differential among area teams.

“We don’t want to make it any question this year,” girls coach Martha Murray said. “We want to win it, move on and start concentrating on state.”

Because Thomasville baet Berrien 3-0 at home earlier this year, the Lady Rebels would have to down the Lady ‘Dogs by at least that margin to evoke any tiebreaking synopsis.

The March 18 contest at Veterans Memorial Stadium remains the lone loss Berrien has sustained this year.

“You never know what to expect when you go on the road,” Murray said. “At Berrien, anything goes. We’re going in prepared to give everything we’ve got.”
