Hana Girls Soccer defeats J.L. Man and qualifies for the state final

Jonathan Duty

Unfortunately the line has expired.

For the first time since 2013, a team other than JL Mann will represent the Upper State’s top ranking in the girls’ soccer tournament.

Mann has played in eight consecutive state championships (in Class AAAA and then Class AAAAA); However, that streak ended Tuesday night as the Patriots fell to 1-AAAAA contender TL Hanna, 1-0, in the senior state championship.

“You know, we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished,” said Mann coach Steve Gorgopoulos. “What we’ve been lacking this year is a little bit of maturity as we’ve had a lot of young players in the squad; however, the lines are supposed to be broken, and unfortunately, it’s our turn tonight.”

Ironically, Hanna was the last to advance as a state senior champion when the Yellow Vests won the state championship over Wandu in 2012.
