ROSE HILL -- The Thomas More Prep-Marian boys' soccer team fell to Rose Hill in regional play for the fourth time in four seasons.
The Monarchs lost in the first round of regional play 2-1 on Tuesday at Rose Hill (13-4).
TMP (4-12) was down 2-0 early, as Rose Hill scored both of its goals off corner kicks.
"They had two goals that no one was marked up on the person who scored," TMP coach Shawn Lawson said.
However, the Monarchs managed to narrow the lead to just 2-1 in the 50th minute on a goal by senior midfielder Rodney Gracas de Deus.
Deus broke past several Rose Hill defenders and shot from 18 yards out.
However, the Monarchs weren't able to complete their rally and tie it up.
"We are closing the gap (on the better teams in Class 4-3-2-1A), but it's just not there yet," Lawson said.
