The Midway High School girls soccer team traveled to top-seeded Carrboro on Wednesday evening, with a chance to advance to round 4 of the NCHSAA State Playoffs, and for a rematch against county and conference foe, Clinton.
However, the home team was too much for Midway, and their stellar season came to an end. When it was all said and done, Carrboro had closed out the Lady Raiders by a score of 5-0.
Midway head coach Trey Apperson was obviously looking for the win, but is still proud of his team and the season that they had. He has throughout the season praise the young players and the leadership of this team.
“This team has a lot of good qualities,” said Apperson. “They have younger players who are very talented and eager to get better, and then the leadership from the upper-classmen is absolutely wonderful. This team has a lot to be proud of and I am incredibly proud of them and all that they have accomplished this year. Making it to the third round of the state playoffs and falling to the top ranked team is nothing to hold your head down about. This team has worked hard and it has paid dividends. Losing a hard-fought game against the defending state champs is not too bad. We were there and played hard and I’m extremely proud of the girls.”
The Carrboro win means that they will host Clinton on Saturday night at 7 p.m.
Nine Midway seniors played their last game last night, and that group advanced to the third round three of their four years at MHS.
Midway finishes the season at 16-6 overall.
