The varsity boys soccer team finished the season 11-4-1, the most wins since 2013. In arguably the toughest area in single A, the Cavaliers finished 4th and qualified for the state playoffs for the third consecutive year. The team’s three losses in the area were separated by one goal against their respective opponents. “I feel we were the best 4th seed in the state as we could have easily finished higher if we had a little luck on our side. It certainly says a lot about our area and the quality of soccer we have,” stated head coach Iain Jones. The season came to an end after losing to Savannah Country Day 3-2 in the first round of the playoffs. The Cavaliers have 23 players returning next year as they hope to continue their success.
The varsity girls team finished 9-4-3. The team finished 4th in the area. The girls lost in the first round of the playoffs versus Calvary Day 1-0. The Calvary coach said, “MDS is not your typical 4th seed.” The MDS team fielded seven seniors, three of them who have played since 8th grade. According to head coach Kenny Epss, “These seniors have been the driving force behind this program over the last five years. Although it hurts us to see them leave, we appreciate the legacy they have left, and we will cherish the memories we had with them. Although the loss of seven seniors will provide for a difficult transition, I have confidence that the great young talent in the program will continue to develop in the off-season and couple their skill with the lessons passed on by our seniors to provide for continued success for the program.”
