PROCTORVILLE — After a slow start this season, the South Point Pointers finished their season strong.

The Pointers slipped past the Fairland Dragons 3-2 on Thursday to end the soccer regular season with an 8-6-2 record after an 0-1-1 start.

Drew Smith got the only goal of the first half with an assist from Jake Helton as the Pointers took a 1-0 lead at the 24:00 mark.

Fairland tied the game at the 45:00-minute mark of the second half on an unassisted goal by Tyler Webb.

South Point then took the lead for good with 59:00 on the clock as Jordan Overstreet scored on a free kick.

Helton followed that at the 74:00-mark with a corner kick and it was 3-1.

Fairland got its final goal two minutes later, but the Pointers were able to hang on for the win.
