The curtain closed on the Liberty County soccer teams as the season ended with a tribute to the departing seniors.
April 5 was the boys and girls’ last regular season game at home as the Panthers faced the South Effingham Mustangs.
The Lady Panthers were able to hold the Mustangs to only two goals in the first half, but were not able to put up the defense in the second, allowing the Mustangs to score six goals and win 8-0.
The Lady Panthers have a relatively young team this season and they will lose four senior players.
Lady Panthers head coach Daryl McCulley measures the factors that face his team next season.
“We have such a high turnover in players that it is like having a new team ever year. However, I think there is a good group of freshman and sophomores that will be returning for next season,” he said
The Panther boys’ coach Bryant Durham will lose three senior players this season and although they finished fourth in the region he feels very optimistic about next season.
“It’s hard to replace seniors but we are looking forward to others on the team to step up,” he said. “I’m very happy with the season. We made vast improvements from last year and we have more improvements to make but overall I’m very happy.”
