Soccer -- The Mount Airy under-14 boys soccer team competed in the third annual Mason-Dixon Cup last weekend in Hagerstown, finishing the two-day tournament with a 1-2 mark.

Mount Airy got off to a flying start with a 4-1 win Saturday morning against Upshur Genetics -- a West Virginia-based team.

Upshur scored the game's opening goal only to see Mount Airy answer with the next two to take a 2-1 halftime lead.

Aaron Dorsey opened the scoring for Mount Airy followed by a goal from James Smyrnioudis off a penalty kick.

Jacob Abrams added an insurance goal, and Dorsey followed that up with his second goal to give Mount Airy the win.

Mount Airy then dropped a 2-0 decision Saturday to the Reading-Burkes Rebels -- a team from Reading, Pa.

Sunday, Mount Airy suffered a 6-3 decision to the Hagerstown Scramblers.

Mount Airy fell behind 2-0 early on before rallying to tie the score at 2-2 by halftime.

Hagerstown put the game out of reach with three unanswered goals midway through the second half.

Smyrnioudis and Abrams both scored their second goals of the tournament, and Nathan Hendrickson also tallied in Sunday's loss.

Seventy-six teams competed in the tournament with seven age groups represented on the boys side, three in the girls.
