Danville won back-to-back girls soccer games 3-2, and seemed poised to grab a third consecutive win on Monday.

Lucy Pickle scored to give the Ironmen a first-half lead over Milton at home in Heartland Athletic Conference-Division II action, but then the game was suspended due to a thunderstorm.

When the game resumed Tuesday, the unbeaten Black Panthers rallied behind a pair of goals from Janae Bergey for a 3-1 win.

The Ironmen (2-2) got eight saves from Colleen Fish.

That came after Danville defeated Midd-West on Thursday and Central Mountain on Saturday in HAC crossover contests.

Kara Thompson scored early in the second half to erase Midd-West's halftime lead and then scored the eventual game-winner to lead the Ironmen.

Becca Yount's goal put the host Mustangs in front. Thompson pulled the Ironmen into a tie, and Pickle gave Danville its first lead. Thompson then gave the Ironmen an insurance goal that proved critical when Emma Martin scored late for Midd-West.

Against the Wildcats, Pickle scored with a Lauren Law assist to lift Danville.

Chloe Hoffman and Law each scored in the first half to give the Ironmen (2-1) a 2-0 lead, before the Wildcats scored twice in the second half to tie it.
