Fairlea, WV (WOAY) – For the second time in three years, Greenbrier East girls soccer is headed to the state tournament, with the team ready to compete for a state title this weekend.
The Lady Spartans say this season has featured many obstacles, but they believe their ability to overcome those challenges has made them stronger. They had a seven-game winning streak earlier in the season, and have won five straight since October 10.
Greenbrier East claimed a sectional title two weeks ago with wins against Woodrow Wilson (2-0) & Princeton (5-2). They won 1-0 against George Washington last week in Beckley, where they’ll be returning on Friday.
The Lady Spartans will play Cabell Midland in the second Girls AAA semifinal; that match will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of University-Hedgesville, which starts at 5 PM.
