After all six MISD soccer programs made the postseason in 2012, only two teams remain. The hopes for a state champion in the world of soccer resides in the boys and girls from McKinney Boyd, who both advanced to the 5A Area Round after shutting out their opponents on Wednesday night.
The Lady Broncos defeated Lake Highlands 3-0 at Wildcat-Ram Stadium in Richardson. Anne Davies, Chloe Fifer, and Elizabeth Murphy all scored a goal for Boyd. The Lady Broncos will play Longview in the Area Round. Longview defeated Copperas Cove 2-0 in its Bi-District round match on Wednesday. Game time and location will be announced soon.
The boys had a bit of a tougher match at Plano’s Clark Field, but came away with a 1-0 victory over W.T. White in the Bi-District round. No stats were recorded for the match. The Broncos face North Mesquite, who defeated Bryan 3-2 on Wednesday, in the Area Round. Game time and location will be announced soon.
