Former Watauga High soccer coach Doug Kidd, who spent 16 years with the men’s and women’s programs, finally won his first state champions on Saturday in Raleigh.

His new school, Swansboro High defeated Forbush 2-1 in triple overtime. Lindsey Redfearn scored the game-winning goal with 27.4 seconds left in the third sudden-death overtime period. It was Swansboro second state title in four years.

The Pirates finish the season at 23-1-3. Kidd, who led the Swansboro men to a 21-5 record and the state semi-finals last fall, is the all-time leader in career wins at WHS in soccer. He now has 490 wins his career (261 with the men; 229 with the women).  He won 446 of those game (240 with the men, and 206 with the women) at WHS. Our congratulations to one of our own, Doug Kidd.
