Following their state semifinal victory against Lincoln-Sudbury last night the boys soccer team prepares for the ultimate game, the D1 State Finals Saturday against Ludlow. The game time has been announced as 11 am Saturday and will take place at Worcester State. The weekly schedule has been updated. Tomorrow I will be posting a brief preview of Saturday’s tilt.
It was a bone-chilling night for any outdoor event, let alone soccer but that’s where we found ourselves as boys soccer looked to earn a spot in the state finals. To do so however they would have to get past the north champion Lincoln-Sudbury Warriors at a packed house at Manning Field in Lynn. Could the Raiders punch their ticket to the ultimate game, lets find out!
Result for 11-14-18
