Chris Agorsor scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season and added an assist as top-ranked McDonogh boys soccer shut out host Gilman, 3-0, yesterday.
The Eagles (18-3) clinched the regular-season MIAA A Conference title and the No. 1 seed in the playoffs with the win.
A McDonogh loss to the Greyhounds (9-8-1) coupled with a 3-1 Archbishop Curley loss to Mount St. Joseph on Tuesday could have resulted in a two-way tie for first.
McDonogh coach Steve Nichols called the field conditions "sloppy," but was thankful to have Agorsor back after a hip flexor injury.
"He missed 3 1/2 games, but he's scored 21 goals in 10 games," Nichols said.
McDonogh goalie Tommy Caso had his 18th shutout of the season, a school record.
