They found the net once again from deep, lob- bing the shot over Jade Butler. The final 10 min- utes of play didn't bode well for the Patriots, as they would fail to score. "There were some ques- tionable calls, but Hedg- esville was the better team tonight," Head Coach Tim Michael said. "They're one of the best teams in the state, so I'm just hap- py with the way we came out pushing hard."

"Most of the seniors have been with me for three to four years, and I'll be the first to tell you I'm not the easiest person to get along with but they did everything I asked of them and complained very little. I'm sad to see them go they were a very dedicated, happy-go-lucky and fun group." The Lady Eagles, like their counterparts, will be facing Hurricane in the Class AAA Semifinals. The Redskins are ranked 15th in AAA, just shy of Hedgesville who sits in the 14th spot.

The Cougars like alternating be- tween deep routes and utilizing Corbin Pierson's running skills. The Patriots will need to defend both down low and keep wideouts Antoine Lewis and Trent Shelton in check if they want to contain the constantly changing offense.
