…on to Radford for the State Semi’s!!!

Published by at 7:25 pm under girls soccer,State Championships

Madison’s varsity girl’s soccer team made a LONG trip to the eastern shore today to play Northampton in the State, Group A, Semifinal.  Madison defeated Northampton 4-1 to advance to the State Semifinals on Friday in Radford.  They will play the winner of the Radford and John Battle game. UPDATE:  It looks like Radford won 5-0, so it should be Radford vs Madison on Friday. But don’t take my word for it, we’ll wait to hear the official stuff.

(I wasn’t there, but was getting text updates.  I was at MCHS this morning for the team’s sendoff.)

Freshman Lydia Jacobs started off the scoring for Madison,  with an assist from sophomore Lindsey Wheeler, to give Madison a 1-0 lead going into the half.  Madison had 9 shots on goal in the first half vs none for Northampton.  Senior Ashley Sealander scored 4 minutes into the second half and Lindsey Wheeler added another goal 2 minutes later to make it 3-0, but Courtney Evans of Northampton scored in 49 th minute to take the score to 3-1.  Senior Rachel Strahan would score later in the half to make the final 4-1.

Here are the brackets for the State Semi’s and Finals. Looks like it’s noon for Madison on Friday.










The quote on the back of their shirts, from Mia Hamm:  “Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become, the hours of practice, the coaches who pushed you, the teammates who believe in you, and the fans who cheer for you is the little girl who took that first perfect shot. The little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back, PLAY FOR HER.”
