In 2015 East shut out Myers Park 4-0 to wrap up their 8th consecutive NCFHA Championship. The past two years have seen Myers Park return and win the championship while East was knocked out in the semi final round both years. This year we finally got to see a rematch of the 2015 finals.
Although the championship went to Myers Park again this year, 1-0, the Wildcats weren’t crestfallen. They rightfully felt theirs was a strong and valiant effort especially compared to the past two championships when MP beat Chapel Hill 5-0 (2016) and Cardinal Gibbons 4-0 (2017) as well as the complete domination of Chapel Hill in the semi finals this year, 6-0. The Wildcats are already eager for the 2019 season to get underway.
The Mustangs are now the only other team, besides East Chapel Hill, to achieve a 3-peat while the Wildcats suffered only their second ever loss in the finals (the first in 2006 vs RJ Reynolds).
