East Wake (12-8) scored 15 minutes into the contest and then added another goal with five minutes left in the first half to take a 2-0 halftime lead.

Southside (17-5) controlled the midfield more and had more scoring chances in the second half.

Jonathan Perez pulled Southside within one with 29:12 left before East Wake scored on a rebound off the left post with seven minutes left in the third round.

“We knew they were going to be a lot faster than our opponent in the first round, and we still had a hard time adjusting,” coach Jay Petty said. “It was difficult to play our style in the first half because of their speed, but we did a lot better in the second half. We played 80 great minutes but the ball didn’t bounce back to us for the remaining 10. I thought we had a great second half of the season after a slow start. Towards the end things got better and we understood some things. I’m proud of our efforts and will miss our seniors.”
