PERKINS TWP.

The seniors at Perkins had one final game Monday on the field they've known for four years, and they didn't disappoint.

Shanna Colvin and Heidi Ebert each scored a goal, and the Lady Pirates held on for a 2-1 win against Edison.

Colvin scored in the second minute off Rebecca Genarri's assist, and Ebert scored the second goal when she dribbled down the left side of the field before getting a shot on goal for a 2-0 lead.

Colvin and Ebert have been four-year starters for the program, as has Kayla Robbins, who anchored the defense.

"Kayla Robbins just commanded everything back there. She didn't let anything falter and kept the defenders in line all night," head coach Les Wilson said.

While his seniors were doing the scoring, freshman Rachael Fowler made one save for Perkins.

The goals snapped a two-game scoreless drought for Perkins (6-7-1, 5-2-1 Sandusky Bay Conference) after a pair of 5-0 losses to Ashland Crestview and Oak Harbor.

Edison brought the game to 2-1 when freshman Michelle Johnston put a loose ball into the net 12 minutes before halftime.

"The referee ruled Lindsey Carroll was inside the goal when she cleared it," said Wilson, who disagreed with the ruling.

After missing the previous two games, Ebert returned to the lineup along with junior Kaylie Weinhardt. Ebert is nursing a sore knee, and Wilson suspects the senior captain has a partial tear of knee ligaments.

"She's been playing in pain all year but she's trying to grind it out," Wilson said.

The Lady Pirates couldn't finish off their chances to widen the lead late in the game, and instead had to hold of the Lady Chargers.

"Edison always hangs tough. They countered on us and I though they we're going to tie it up," Wilson said. The first meeting between the teams was a 1-0 win for Perkins. "We didn't win big like we hoped to but we did manage to get the win."

Margaretta 7, Clyde 0

At Castalia, the Lady Polar Bears scored early and often in a 7-0 victory over Clyde to improve to 4-3-1 in the SBC and 4-6-2 overall.

Sarah Weaver registered a hat trick for Margaretta, scoring off assists from Danielle Kaden, Halle Rice and Sabrina Crawford-Gerber.

Also scoring for Margaretta included Rice, Crawford-Gerber and Arielle Bowers while Nicole Weyer and Erica Dickman also added assists.

Crawford-Gerber played the first half at goalkeeper and had three saves while Sierra Protzman played the second half and made one save.

Huron 1, Brookside 1

At Sheffield, the Lady Tigers (2-5-3) scored a goal 53 seconds into the match but with 30 minutes left Brookside forged a tie in non-conference action.

Lexi Majoy scored Huron's goal in the first minute off an assist from Cahni Hresko, but it was one of just three shots on goal for Huron. Brookside's goal came from Danielle Hunt, and the Lady Cardinals had 15 shots on goal.

At goalkeeper, Ashley Stacey played the first half and registered five saves while Lauren Shackleford played the second half and had nine saves.
