The Polar Bears scored two goals in the second half to break a 1-1 draw and got their first-ever win against Perkins on Monday at Perkins High School.
Brittany Yost and Ashley Wiedenheft netted goals after halftime in the 3-1 win for Margaretta, which lost 3-0 in the first meeting between the teams in mid-September at Castalia.
The Polar Bears were on the board first midway through the first half when Brenna Hultgren's goal gave them a 1-0 lead.
Shelby Kaser scored the tying goal for Perkins (3-7-3, 3-3-2) with 11:16 left before halftime. Kaser scored the game-winner in a 2-1 win Oct. 4 against Clyde.
After halftime, Yost scored the go-ahead goal just 1:45 after halftime.
Wiedenheft added a penalty kick goal with 14:36 left in the game for good measure.
Sadie Ahlers made 13 save in goal for Perkins, which was celebrating senior night, while Margaretta goalkeeper Sierra Protzman made nine of her own.
Margaretta had a substantial 8-1 advantage in corner kicks.
Clyde 1, Edison 1
At Milan, both goals came in the final 10 minutes of action as the Fliers and Chargers tied in a Sandusky Bay Conference game.
Olivia Schmitke scored for Edison with eight minutes when her shot from the right
corner inside the penalty box found the net.
Kourtney Burdette knotted the game with a minute on the clock after a scramble inside the box.
Rachel Kiley made 14 saves for Edison (2-8-5) and Victoria Rohrbach made 12 for the Fliers.
"Although our girls fought hard tonight, they seemed a bit tired throughout the game which clearly impacted our ability to strike the ball when opportunities presented," Edison coach Randy Schmitke said.
"We have been in a number of very close games, which is a positive in the development of the program and I am very proud of them for their effort on the field. I know our girls will keep working hard to get to the next level," Schmitke said. "I give the Clyde girls a lot of credit for pressing through the last minute of the game -- it earned them a tie tonight."
Norwalk 3 Upper Sandusky 0
At Norwalk, Caroline Blackwood scored three goals and Amy Beier made five saves for her sixth shutout of the year as Norwalk topped Upper Sandusky.
Sophomores Carley Wright and Morgan Hoover each had an assist in the game.
"Caroline really stepped up and took it to Upper. Her second goal was great," Norwalk coach James Igneczi said. "She took it from midfield and went all the way through the defense before finishing it off. She wasn't going to be stopped.
"Defensively we were able to stay connected and force them to the outsides and prevent any real scoring opportunities."
