The Wilmington Lady Hurricane soccer team visited Miami Trace High School for what was likely the final time Thursday evening.
The league is disbanding after this school year and Wilmington, along with Clinton-Massie and East Clinton, will be joining the Southern Buckeye Conference.
Miami Trace, along with Washington, Hillsboro, McClain and Chillicothe will form a new league with Jackson starting in August of 2017.
Thursday, Wilmington won the match, 4-1.
Wilmington scored in the first half with 34:30 and 1:55 to play, respectively.

Wilmington held a 2-1 halftime lead.
Wilmington scored at the 27:39 and 11:30 marks of the second half.
Taylor Barrett had 12 saves for Miami Trace.
The Lady Panthers had 13 shots.
“In the first half, our girls played well,” Miami Trace head coach Caitlin Francis said. “In the second half, we left some marks on defense and they snuck some goals in.
“In the final 10 minutes, we stepped up our play, we just didn’t get the shots to fall,” Francis said.
Miami Trace (now 2-9 overall, 2-6 in the SCOL) will host McClain Tuesday at 5 p.m.
