The Riverview Middle School Lady Eagle soccer team avenged an earlier defeat to rival Dawson County Middle with a 4-2 win March 21.

Earlier this season, the Lady Tigers defeated Riverview by a 3-1 score.

With the win, the Lady Eagles will enter the Mountain League tournament as the No. 2 seed.

The Lady Tigers will be No. 1 seed.

Both teams started the tournament with games on Monday. Results were not available as of press time. The championship game will be played tomorrow.

"It was a very good game. Riverview gave us a run for our money. There are a few things that we need to work on before our next game. The girls played hard and I am very proud of them," said Dawson Middle Head Coach Jessi Crane.

It was a cold, blustery, windy day. The conditions were brutal for both teams. The game was played in a clean, exciting fashion despite the weather.

Riverview got on the scoreboard first. A handball penalty was called against the Lady Tigers that gave Riverview a penalty kick that was converted with 16:50 left in the first half.

Dawson answered at the 11:47 mark in the half with a goal of its own by Brooke Cagle.

Head Coach John Lundy's team put one more score on the board before halftime to take a 2-1 lead at intermission.

Riverview extended its lead to 3-1 with less than seven minutes gone in the second half.

The Lady Tigers answered at the 15:39 mark to trim the score to 3-2. But with just 37 seconds remaining, the Lady Eagles sealed the game on a goal.

Four different Riverview players scored goals: Bailey Cotter, Kathryn Ryerse, Mackenzie Callas and Ava Walker.

"I was excited to see the girls play an entire game and have fun doing it," Lundy said. "Bre Moody came back from being sick and played an incredible game, keeping it close after the first half. Kathryn Ryerse, Bailey Cotter and Zoe Grindstaff helped keep the ball moving down field and helped give us the goals we needed to win.

"Dawson is a great team and we know that if we play them again in the championship game, being that we are fortunate enough to get there, we will have our work cut out for us."

Both teams picked up wins on Friday.

Riverview defeated Jasper Middle, 6-0, and Dawson trampled Clear Creek, 9-0.
