If nothing else, the Southold/Greenport high school girls soccer team can say that it is undefeated against the Bishop McGann-Mercy Monarchs this season.

The Clippers defeated McGann-Mercy, the only team they have beaten this season, for the second time on Tuesday. Both teams entered the Suffolk County League VIII game with only one win each. Justina Babcock notched a goal and an assist and Megan Knapp assisted twice in a 3-0 result at Southold High School that snapped a five-game losing streak by the Clippers.

In a season in which they have seen their share of difficulties, it was a good day for the Clippers (2-9-1, 2-7-1), who were 2-0 winners over McGann-Mercy (1-11, 1-8) on Sept. 29.

“There were a lot of positives from the game today,” Southold/Greenport Coach Kevin McGoey said. “We moved the ball around well. We were able to move it to the outside and get some crosses in to score a couple of goals.”
