Playoff Bound for the 24th consecutive year….

Friday March 20, 2015:

Marcus FC is headed to the playoffs for the 24th consecutive year.  Marcus defeated Plano in a convincing 3-0 win.  Goals from Senior Striker Shayne West (assist from Sophomore Midfielder Adam Baldwin) and an unassisted goal from Junior Midfielder Jackson Bradford to close out the 1st half of play 2-0.  Midway through the second half, Junior Midfielder Ethan Woods found the final goal.  With the win, Marcus will be playing in the playoffs for the 24th year in a row.

Marcus will be waiting for the outcome of the Flower Mound vs Plano West game to determine where they will finish the regular season.  With a Flower Mound win or tie, Flower Mound will take 3rd in District 6-6A .  With a Flower Mound loss, Marcus will take the 3rd place position.
