PREVIEW: Marshall Plays Charlotte in District Final Rematch

8-22 soccer

Listen live Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. on the Slocum Sports Network to high school boys soccer with the Marshall Redhawks hosting the Charlotte Orioles.  Marshall ended Charlotte’s 2016 season with a 3-1 victory in their district final at Charlotte.  The Redhawks, who went 17-4-2 overall, were eliminated in the regional semifinal by eventual Division 2 champion Mattawan.   The Orioles finished 13-6.

Marshall graduated All-State Second Team midfielder Cody Clapper as well as honorable mention defender Jeremy Quick, but do return a honorable mention selection in junior forward Jeremy Luciani.  Charlotte didn’t have any All-State selections, but put together a strong season as an independent.

The Orioles had a brief two-season tenure (2014-15, 15-16) in the Interstate 8 Conference along with Marshall, but have returned to their original home in the Capital Area Activities Conference for 2017-18.    As conference foes, Marshall beat Charlotte in all four of their meetings, including a 4-2 win in the 2014 district tournament.

Listen to Tuesday’s game live on the Slocum Sports Network from Marshall High School.   Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
