This is the first time West Point has ever made it to a final in a soccer tournament and Head Coach Jacob Brown was proud of the way his team performed against some good competition.

“Really proud of the boys. If there’s one thing this team will do, it’s leave it all out in the field and they definitely did that.” Brown said. “No one will ever outwork us on the field. It was a great game to prepare for our harder section matches coming up.”

The Warriors will travel to Danville Thursday.
