RALEIGH 

Celebrating with his players, Guy Coleman held up a trophy nobody expected his team would even have a chance to play for.

Just minutes earlier, the Middle Creek coach watched the No. 26 seed Mustangs secure their first-ever spot in the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4A girls’ soccer championship game by beating No. 24 seed Athens Drive, a fellow SWAC team and playoff underdog, 4-1 in overtime in the East Regional final on Tuesday.
