Thanks to the generosity of a local business, Polk County fans can once again enjoy playoff soccer at no charge.

Green River Adventures/The Gorge Zipline will be paying for tickets for any Polk County fan attending Thursday’s 1A state playoff encounter matching the Wolverines against Uwharrie Charter. The fourth-round match is set to begin at 5 p.m.

As was the case with Monday’s match against Thomas Jefferson, for which Ashworth Financial Group provided tickets, the offer is only for Polk County fans. Those supporting the Wolverines are asked to again wear blue or other school-related gear to show support for the team.
