The Richmond Hill boys and girls soccer again dominated the field on Tuesday, this time against Wayne County. The RHHS teams are on bold winning streaks which hopefully will carry over into the upcoming regional tournament.

The boys won 4-2 with goals scored by Mitch Doud (2), Brian Wood and Corey Butler.

"We played slow to begin with, but our composure and experience prevailed," said head boys coach Wade Wright. "I thought we played a little sloppy defensively for the first half but made a few adjustments and we shut down their speed and ability to attack. I am really pleased at the new found ability to create offense. It has been a point of emphasis in our training the pas couple of weeks."

"This makes six in a row going into the region playoffs," Wright continued. "It appears we will play Thomson High School at RHHS at 6 pm. Wednesday. They are athletic and speedy, just like the team we just played. I hope we are up to the challange and we are going to just working hard and improving."

The girls won 7-2 with goals scored by Laura Nunnery (3), Tyler Carlson, Lori Barnes, Allison Snider and Lauren Hall. The girls now boast an impressive 13-1 overall and 5-1 region record.

With regular season play now over, the region tournament begins April 10.
