N&O's Thursday Soccer Coverage

The News & Observer previews the College Cup and few other soccer stories this morning. Staff writer J.P. Giglio devotes a dozen column inches to the ACC flavor of the College Cup while the Briefs section covers Freddy Adu's reconciliation with DC United, Jeff Agoos' retirement, and Manchester United's dark night at the Stadium of Light. In a story that didn't make the N&O, AP writer Jacob Jordan writes about Clemson coach Trevor Adair losing his father during the playoff run as the overachieving Tigers, who finished 7th in the ACC during regular season, have made a special run to the final four.
