Boys soccer season comes to an end on the road
A nice win on Monday meant a long trip on Wednesday.
Unfortunately for The Woodstock Academy boys soccer team, the trip was not a fruitful one.
The 13th-seeded Centaurs made the nearly two-hour journey to Monroe where they met No. 4 Masuk and saw their season come to a close after a 5-1 loss in a Class L state tournament second-round match.
“It was a disappointing end to the season, but I thought the boys played well,” Woodstock Academy coach Paul Rearden said.

“In my four years here, I’ve never got past the first round, so this was really important and it feels awesome,” Woodstock senior Ethan Holcombe said.
The Centaurs advance to meet No. 4 Masuk, a 3-0 winner over No. 36 Bunnell, on Wednesday in Monroe.
