The soccer postseason is well underway in Virginia, and some of the area’s best teams earned district titles over the past few days.
T.C. Williams had a dramatic 3-2 win over West Potomac to win the Gunston District championship. The Titans were down 1-0 and 2-1 but tied the game late and sealed the victory in overtime. This is their second district title in the last three years.
W.T. Woodson and Robinson also played a tense final, with the Cavaliers edging their rival, 2-1, for the Patriot District crown. The Cavaliers were down 1-0 early but scored a late winner. They enter the region playoffs having won six of their last seven matches.
