    The Rockwood Tigers soccer team racked up another impressive notch under their belt with a dominating 4-1 win over the Carter Hornets on Friday evening.

    Loudon’s only threat came in the top half of the first inning as they coupled base hits to leave runners on first and second.
    The Lady Waves kicked it off in the bottom of the first inning with senior leader Alex Richardson doing what she has done so many times during her Midway career, hitting a two-run blast to put the Lady Waves up 2-0.
