The Aynor Boys soccer team defeated Loris Wednesday night 2-1 to close out their regular season. Dylan West scored in the first half on a throw in from Kole Bryson. West also scored in the 11th minute of the second half on a corner kick from Bryson to make it 2-0. The bluejackets maintained this lead until late in the game when Mateo Salinas scored on a set kick in front of the 18 yard box. The bluejacket defense was led by senior Zach Gray who redirected balls up field all night with the assistance of TG Boling and Henry Sherrill. Keeper James Feaser recorded 10 saves with several of those coming in the closing minutes as Loris had numerous thrown ins and corner kick attempts to tie the game.
With the win, the bluejackets secured 3rd position in Region 6AAA and will be traveling to Region 5AAA second place for the opening round of the playoffs next Tuesday.
