Boys Soccer History at MHS  

Minford was the first school in Scioto County to have a soccer team.  The Falcons began playing in the *fall of 1983."  New Boston started their soccer team the same year.  Minford went 5 - 5 that year and won a playoff game. 

Below is a photo of the first soccer team.

Season notes:
Jason Slone scored six golas in the White Oak tournament game.  That total was an SOC record that was not broken until 2000.  Ron Goodson scored his first and only goal as a freshman, but would goon to score 116 more for the SOC and Minford career scoring record.  It placed him 3rd in the state of Ohio.  The game vs. White Oak remained the highest scoring game until 1999.
