May 15, 2014 

Here’s an overview of the 2014 state girls soccer playoffs through the second round of play:

Class 4A

First round results: J.L. Mann 11, Northwestern 0; Wade Hampton 7, Clover 0; Irmo 3, Greenwood 0; Lancaster 1, Riverside 0; Fort Mill 3, Mauldin 1; Blythewood 5, Hillcrest 0; Dorman 7, Nation Ford 0; T.L. Hanna 3, Boiling Springs 0; Dutch Fork 4, Lugoff-Elgin 0; West Ashley 1, Beaufort 0; White Knoll 6, Carolina Forest 1; Sp[ring Valley 1, Fort Dorchester 0; Wando 10, Bluffton 0; South Aiken 6, West Florence 0; Ashley Ridge 9, Stratford 2; Lexington 7, Sumter 0.

Second round matches: J.L. Mann 4, Wade Hampton 2; Irmo 5, Lancaster 0; Fort Mill 1, Blythewood 0; Dorman 3, T.L. Hanna 0; Dutch Fork 5, West Ashley 0; Spring Valley 3, White Knoll 1; Wando 5, South Aiken 0; Lexington 3, Ashley Ridge 0.

Third round matches: Irmo at J.L. Mann; Spring Valley at Dutch Fork; Lexington at Wando.

4A notes: Irmo goes to Greenville with the chance to make it to the fourth round for the first time since 2007 … Spring Valley’s win over White Knoll sets up another all-Midlands match in the Lower State. The Vikings have advanced to the third for the first time since 2003. DF had made it to the third round for the fourth time in the last five seasons. Lexington hopes to end the Wando curse. It all began when the Warriors denied the Wildcats in the 2007 championship match. Since then, Wando has eliminated Lexington in the Lower State bracket in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013. The Cats have never beaten the Warriors in postseason play.

Class 3A

First round results: Eastside 6, Belton-Honea Path 0; A.C. Flora 5, Chapman 0; Wren 2, Pickens 1; River Bluff 6, Broome 1; Chapin 16, Chester 0; Greenville 8, Walhalla 1; Woodruff 4, Dreher 3; Seneca 1, Blue Ridge 0; Myrtle Beach 4, Berkeley 0; Airport 12, Lakewood 0, Hilton Head 6, Socastee 0; Brookland-Cayce 11, Crestwood 0; Hartsville 3, Gilbert 2; St. James 7, Hanahan 0; Swansea 2, Darlington 0; James Island 2, North Myrtle Beach 0.

Second round matches: Eastside 6, A.C. Flora 2; River Bluff 3, Wren 0; Chapin 3, Greenville 2 (OT); Woodruff 2, Seneca 0; Myrtle Beach 3, Airport 0, Hilton Head 5, Brookland-Cayce 1; Swansea 3, James Island 2; St. James 6, Hartsville 0.

Third round matches: River Bluff at Eastside; Woodruff at Chapin; Hilton Head at Myrtle Beach; St. James at Swansea.

3A notes: River Bluff matched the accomplishment of the boys team by becoming the first first-year varsity program to advance as far as the third round of the playoffs in its inaugural campaign. St. Joseph’s pulled it off (boys and girls) but the Knights were a SCISA team with established programs in place when it joined the High School League in 2011 ... Chapin is back in the third round for the first time since 2009 … Swansea has made it to the third round for the fifth year in a row – the last two at the 3A level.

Class 2A

Midlands first round results: Christ Church 12, Fairfield Central 0; Batesburg-Leesville 4, Southside Christian 0; Indian Land 12, Columbia 0; Pelion 8, Barnwell 0.

Midlands second round results: Indian Land 11, Batesburg-Leesville 1; Wade Hampton H 2, Pelion 0.
