MADISON – The Madison Central Jaguars Boys Soccer team is a win away from the program’s first ever State Championship. The Jags take on Ocean Springs in the 6A Final at 6:00pm Friday in Clinton.
MC is back in the State title game for the second time in the last three years and believes this time around will be their turn to bring home the big hardware. Friday’s match-up is a rematch from two seasons ago when Ocean Springs captured the crown.
The Jags are 18-3-1 under second-year head coach Cecil Hinds and are ranked number-two in the State.
