The Langston Chargers soccer team provided a thrilling match with Spartanburg Day last Friday, needing overtime and a penalty kick shoot out to advance to the 2nd Round of the CMSC Soccer Tournament. The game was a battle of ups and downs and came down to who had possession last to try and seal the victory. It was not to be, however, and the dreaded penalty kicks were needed to decide the outcome. Langston was able to capitalize on a couple of missed chances by Spartanburg Day and come out of the match with a victory, sending them to the semi-finals of the CMSC tournament as a fourth seed, facing nemesis Hampton Park. Thanks to the students who were able to come to the game and show your support.
In the semi-finals of the CMSC tournament, Langston went head to head with longtime and #1 seeded rival Hampton Park. Your Chargers controlled the entire match with stifling play from the eighth grade leadership of Jacob Deas, Joey Starr, Matthew Langley, Micah Shearer, Matthew Harper, Rylan Marler and Jackson Odom. Grayson Martin did a tremendous job tending the goal and provided security for the field players to take care of business on the pitch. The Chargers fell behind but were able to come back and tie the score 1-1 and looked to be heading to the championship as they were clearly dominant and showed great heart and perseverance. However, the game went into and out of overtime and into another penalty kick shootout. Unfortunately, the Chargers were unable to advance in this one.
The team will play today at 5:00pm to determine 3rd and 4th place spots in the conference at Spartanburg Day. All-Conference selection will be announced and representing Langston Charter Middle School will be Micah Shearer as voted by his teammates. Congrats Micah!
