Polk County Middle's Isaac Edwards begins to attack from midfield during Monday's win.

On a day when Polk County Middle School had no classes, its boys soccer team still passed its last test before a big end-of-season exam.

The Wolverines tuned up for Wednesday’s showdown with undefeated Flat Rock with a 4-1 thumping of Hendersonville Middle on Monday afternoon in a Blue Ridge Middle School Conference match at Polk Middle. Poor field conditions at Hendersonville forced the match to be moved to Polk.

The Wolverines scored four times in the first 15 minutes to improve their record to 9-2. With second place in the Blue Ridge’s East Division basically clinched, Polk Middle head coach Travis Aldred sees Wednesday’s game as a good indicator of where the Wolverines are entering the postseason.

“This one was a must-win for us to keep our place in the standings,” Aldred said. “Wednesday is the big game.

“We play Flat Rock. They’re undefeated and we lost to them the first time we played, 3-1. We didn’t play well in the first half, I felt like we won the second half. This will pretty much show where we’re at, facing the only undefeated team on both sides (of the conference).”

Wednesday’s game, the regular-season finale for the Wolverines, is slated to begin at 4:30 p.m. at Polk Middle.
