ATHLETICS


Boys Soccer

The boys soccer teams' tremendous playoff run ended with a state semifinal loss to Wilson Tuesday evening. Unionville dominated the first half but were unable to score and the half ended 0-0. The second half started back and forth and Wilson put one in about halfway through the period. Then the flood gates opened and Wilson went on to a 4-0 win. Fantastic season boys. Great run.
