History was made on the Brighton Soccer Field tonight.
For the first time in school history, the Brighton Cardinals will play in the Sectional round after beating the Cordova Wolves 2-0 in the Region 7-3A Soccer Semifinals.
The Wolves entered the game as the second-place team from District 14-3A. The Cardinals earned the home game as the champions of District 13-3A.
Brighton jumped ahead 1-0 courtesy of a Nolan Combs goal, assisted by Welton DeGraffreed. The Cardinals got some insurance in the second half when senior Austin Chapman tallied a goal.
Brighton will face the Arlington/Dyer County winner for the Regional championship before heading to the Sectional round.
