MURFREESBORO — Webb School's impressive soccer season came to an end with a 1-0 loss to Boyd Buchanan in the semifinals of the TSSAA Division II Class A State Soccer Tournament on Wednesday afternoon.
The Feet (13-1-2) entered the game undefeated with a pair of ties.
"This was the biggest game in our programs' history and our boys really played hard. It's been amazing to see the growth of our program over the past five years or so and I thought we had our chances in this game for sure and I know our boys are disappointed ," Webb School coach Kevin Moore said.
"To be in the situation to be here, we told ourselves at the beginning of the week to just enjoy it and that's what we tried to do."
Webb had a number of good shots on goal in the first half and missed a great opportunity to take the lead early in the second half on a penalty kick inside the box by Chris Douglas but the shot bounced off goalie Matthew Thomas leaving the game scoreless.
Boyd Buchanan scored the game-winning goal at the 61:43 mark off a shot by Andrew Pollard.
The winners managed 17 shots with The Feet taking 13.
"This senior class not only leaves a great legacy to this program but made a huge influence on this community and they are a great example for our younger boys to look at.
Boyd Buchanan 0 1 — 1
