Midway blanks Spring Creek

The Midway Raiders girls’ soccer and softball teams were in action out on the field Monday night. With beautiful weather setting the stage, Midway welcomed in Spring Creek to continue their East Central Conference push. Both teams suffered slow starts against the Lady Gators, but for the softball team, they eventually pulled away for the 7-0 victory. Over on the soccer field, however, the Lady Raiders comeback effort fell short, falling 3-2.


Midway’s Thornton Baggett jukes to the left around the defender and scurries down field for his 82-yard touchdown. Baggett had two receiving touchdowns on Friday.

Midway bounces back

The Midway Raiders secured their spot in the East Central Conference Football Tournament on Friday night with a win against James Kenan. Celebrating Homecoming in quite possibly their final home game of the season, the Raiders took down the visiting Tigers by the final score of 40-20.
