One-point leads over Windsor Forest on Saturday (4-3 win) and against Jenkins on Tuesday (2-1 win) helped the Bradwell Institute Tiger soccer squad tie for first place in region 3-AAAAA.
They tied with Camden County, but Tiger coach Greg Cooke said, due to a goal differential between his squad and Camden, the Tigers would get the second seed in the playoffs.
Tiger David Miller scored the two goals against Jenkins, giving the boys squad a 12-2 season finish.
The boys finished the season on a nine-game winning streak. Their last loss was to Windsor Forest in their first match on March 3.
Tiger Chris Shuster led the squad this season, scoring 34 points. Marcel Barton and David Miller added 18 apiece.
The victory guarantees the boys will host a playoff game April 22.
The Lady Tigers missed the playoffs this season after losing 3-1 to Windsor Forest and 1-0 to Jenkins. Lady Tiger Suede Jones made the lone goal against Windsor Forest while Rebecca Smith made 16 saves against the Jenkins Lady Warriors on Tuesday.
They finish the season at 4-10.
Lady Tiger Danielle Durham put up 14 points, Allison Burrill added 12 and Kaylie Durham kicked 8 points.
