HIGH SCHOOL PLAYOFF SOCCER

Peach Valley—The Coal Ridge Lady Titans’ amazing season came to a disappointing end yesterday on their home field in a 2-0 loss to the Kent Denver Sun Devils.  Coal Ridge was frustrated all game long by Kent Denver’s tough defense and opportunistic offense led by Senior Midfielder Havana McElvaine.  McElvaine scored both goals for Kent Denver to advance to this Saturday’s final four match with Peak to Peak.  The loss was only the second one this season for the Lady Titans who finish the year with a stellar record of 17 and 2.
