Soccer: Season Ends With Loss at Pinecrest

Broughton's season came to an end Saturday night when the Caps lost to Pinecrest in the second round of the state playoffs.

Playing at times in a pouring rain, the Caps played aggressively throughout the game. But despite repeated shots, including a few that hit the cross bar, Broughton was unable to get on the scoreboard against the second-seeded Pinecrest team.

Pinecrest scored in the game's final three minutes, after Broughton had pulled a defender to strengthen its offensive attack, to make the final score 0-3.

We'd like to send a shout-out to the team's seniors, who helped lead the Caps back into the state playoffs, and to the many parents, siblings and friends who made the trip to Southern Pines to support the team. Great season, Caps!

Soccer: Caps Win in First Round of Playoffs

Broughton, led by two goals by Matt Brickhouse, scored a 3-1 road win at Greenville's J.H. Rose High School Wednesday night to advance to the second round of the state playoffs.

Matt Brickhouse
The Caps were the aggressors from the outset, missing on several shots and corner kicks as they kept the ball in the Rose half of the field for most of the first 15 minutes of the game. Then, nearly midway through the first half, Brickhouse nudged the ball into the goal after the Caps' Ike Drooz headed a cross from Wilbur Gazga to the edge of the goal.

Rose tied the game nine minutes later on a header off a free kick. The first half ended in a 1-1 tie.

Broughton was on the attack quickly as the second half began, with Doh Gay scoring less than three minutes into the half off a pass by Gazga to put the Caps up 2-1.

Doh Gay
The two teams battled back-and-forth throughout the second half, with Broughton keeper Frankie Stallings making a nice save with about 12 minutes left in the game. Broughton finally put the game out of reach with about seven minutes left when Brickhouse scored his second goal of the game off of an assist by Sheenaymu "C" Gay

The Caps will face Pinecrest High School in Southern Pines, the number two seed in the eastern half of the state playoff brackets, in the second round.

Soccer: Caps' Win Seals Third Place in Cap 8

Broughton defeated Millbrook 1-0 Thursday night in a game that broke the tie between the two schools for third place in the Cap 8 conference.
Ike Drooz

The extra game, held at Sanderson before the Cap 8 tournament championship game, was played to sort out where Broughton and Millbrook will be placed in the upcoming state playoffs. The outcome of the championship game between Sanderson and Leesville could also play a role in determining Broughton's playoff fate.

The Caps took control of the game from the beginning, scoring less than two minutes into the first half when Ike Drooz put away a cross from Wilbur Gazga. Broughton controlled possession throughout the first half, and nearly scored again when the Millbrook keeper was forced to make a save on a shot by the Caps' Ibrahim Mohamud.

Keeper Trey Morton made a scrambling save off a Millbrook corner kick with just 30 seconds to go in the first half to preserve Broughton's 1-0 lead.

Wilbur Gazga
Millbrook was more aggressive in the second half, just missing on one shot when it hit the cross bar and another when keeper Frankie Stallings punched the ball away. But Broughton managed to hold on for the win, their second in three games against Millbrook this season.

State playoff brackets are scheduled to be released on Monday.

Soccer: Caps Out Early in Cap 8 Tournament

Broughton suffered an early exit from the Cap 8 conference tournament Monday night, losing 0-1 to a Wakefield team that the Caps had beaten twice in the regular season.

The Caps had several scoring opportunities throughout the first-round game -- including a flurry of chances toward the end of the game -- but were unable to get on the scoreboard. Wakefield scored the game's only goal about midway through the first half.

Broughton, which finished in a tie for third during the regular season, will now have to wait to find out about its prospects for the state playoffs. Depending on the results in the Cap 8 tournament, Broughton may have to play Millbrook on Thursday to determine who gets the conference's third seed for the playoffs.

In any event, Coach Nick Wheeler says Broughton is likely to make the state playoffs. The brackets are expected to be announced on Monday, Oct. 28.

Broughton Varsity Volleyball Wins First Round of States!


The Lady Caps had a successful showing in the first round of the State Championships on Saturday when South Central HS from Greenville came to Holliday Gym to play.  The girls overcame some inconsistencies in the first set to win 25-20, however in the second, set some late hitting and defensive errors allowed South Central to capture the set 25-22.  The Lady Caps came back strong in the third and jumped out to a 6-0 lead and never looked back.  South Central managed to squeeze out 6 points at the end of the set, but the Lady Caps had a commanding lead and won 25-12.  The fourth set started with South Central taking an early 6-1 lead and maintaining that lead until at 9-19 the girls decided it was time to play and limit their errors.  They finished the match 16-3 and won by a final score of 25-22. 
 
Even though this wasn't their cleanest match, the girls amassed a whopping 52 kills, 15 aces, 42 digs and 5 blocks.  South Central was a scrappy team, and as a wild card in the tournament, came to play with nothing to lose.
 
Broughton Volleyball will now face Holly Springs HS on Tuesday night in Holliday Gym time TBD.
Please come out and support your Lady Caps in this second round match up.  You will see some terrific volleyball and the girls need to your support to help them move on in the State Championships!

Soccer: Broughton Suffers Last-Second Loss

The inability to convert scoring opportunities cost Broughton Wednesday night, as Heritage scored with five seconds to play to pull out a 1-2 win over the Caps in the final game of the Cap 8 regular season.

It was Senior Night for the Caps, with the team's nine seniors and their families recognized during a halftime ceremony. But the seniors looked to make their mark from the game's beginning, controlling possession and aggressively attacking the Heritage goal.

Senior Yusef Mohamud almost struck first, hitting the cross bar on a shot less than a minute into the game. Broughton was unable to convert a handful of corner kicks and barely missed on several shots, including one by senior Wilbur Gazga that nicked the post as it skipped wide left midway through the first half.

Ben Youngblood
Heritage came out more aggressively in the second half, and struck with the game's first goal about four minutes into the half. But the Caps fought back, with senior Ben Youngblood hitting an arcing shot from 40 yards out that dropped into the goal over the outstretched hands of the Heritage keeper to tie the score at 1-1.

But then, Heritage converted a corner kick with just five seconds remaining in the game to make the final score 1-2.

Earlier, the junior varsity team won 2-0 over Heritage. The Caps' Joe Ruslander scored off of an assist by Doug Scott, and Cameron Champion scored off of an assist by Bryant O'Neal. Benjamin McCord and Edgar Romero combined in goal for the shutout.

The Caps will return to action Monday night in the conference tournament. By finishing in the top half of the league standings, Broughton earned the right to play at home in the first round on Monday. Come out and support the Caps as they look to make a good run in the postseason.

But before we turn our attention to the postseason, we want to give another shout out to the team's seniors and their families: Doh Gay, Wilbur Gazga, Moe Matheka, Yusef Mohamud, Wyatt Moore, Brooks Nichols, Rosendo Sierra-Flores, Daniel Wiggins and Ben Youngblood. Go Caps!

Soccer: Caps Score Late in OT Win at Enloe

Thanks to two late goals by Rosendo Sierra-Flores, Broughton escaped Enloe with a 2-0 win in overtime on Monday night.

Rosendo Sierra-Flores
Broughton controlled possession of the ball throughout the game, but Enloe's defenders hung tough on senior night for the Eagles. The Caps had multiple scoring opportunities, but sailed balls just wide or high or directly at the Enloe keeper.

With no goals in regulation, Broughton faced its second consecutive overtime game. The Caps' Matt Brickhouse just missed on a shot in the first overtime period, while keeper Trey Morton kept the score tied at zero when he made a great save near the end of the first overtime period.

Doh Gay
Broughton continued to attack in the second overtime period, with Sierra-Flores finally sliding a pass from the Caps' Doh Gay past the Enloe keeper and just inside the far post. Sierra-Flores sealed the win with less than a minute remaining in the game when he scored off a corner kick. Ibrahim Mohamud assisted on the goal.

Earlier, the junior varsity team defeated Enloe 3-1. Sheenaymu "C" Gay scored twice for Broughton, both times off of assists by Bryant O'Neal. Cameron Champion scored the other goal for the Caps, with an assist by Jacob McCaslin.

Broughton finishes off the Cap 8 regular season with a home game Wednesday night against Heritage. Come out to cheer on the Caps as they head into post-season play and help us say thanks to the team's seniors on Senior Night. Go Caps!

Broughton Varsity Volleyball Captures Regular Season Conference Title!


The Lady Caps clinched the CAP 8 Conference Title Monday night after beating Sanderson 3-0 and Millbrook handing Wakefield their second loss of the season.  This locked up the top seed going into the CAP 8 Conference Tournament and the #1 seed out of the conference going into the State Tournament.
 
Tuesday night brought a packed house of family, friends and fans to honor our 3 Seniors: Logan Ayscue, Peyton Strickland and Cleesie Whittington, on Senior night and the last match of regular season play versus Wakefield.  Coming off a bitter loss the night before, Wakefield came ready to play and exact revenge from their earlier loss to Broughton this season.  Even though Broughton put up some impressive numbers, 32 kills, 8 aces and 31 digs, they were no match for the fire power Wakefield was able to display.  The Lady Caps lost in three tight sets: 24-26, 21-25 and 20-25. The girls finished the season 13-1 in Conference and 18-2-1 overall!
 
We appreciate all the support and enthusiasm our fans showed Tuesday night  and all season long.  Following the match the team enjoyed dinner with their family and friends to celebrate our seniors and all they have done for the program.

Soccer: Late Score Nets Win for Caps in OT

It took almost 100 minutes -- 80 minutes of regulation time, 10 minutes of one overtime period and six minutes of another overtime period -- but Broughton finally managed to get a ball in the net to earn a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Wakefield on a cold and wet Wednesday night.
Chris Vlahoplus

Both teams had scoring chances throughout regulation, with Broughton nearly scoring on a corner kick six minutes into the game at Wakefield. Playing in a steady rain, the Caps just missed on several scoring opportunities in the first half.

Wakefield also had its chances, forcing Broughton keeper Trey Morton to make a save with 16 minutes to go in the first half. Defender Ben Youngblood soared to get his head on a Wakefield corner kick with nine minutes left in the first half.

It was more of the same in the second half, with Caps' keeper Frankie Stallings making a save about 15 minutes into the half on a dangerous Wakefield free kick that skidded across the wet field. Broughton's Doh Gay nearly made a spectacular play a few minutes later, sending a leaping bicycle kick just wide of the Wakefield goal.

Trey Morton
Wakefield repeatedly tried to pass long balls over the Broughton defenders, but Hyu A, Brooks Nichols, Jack Krueger and Youngblood were able to hold them off each time. During one two-minute stretch, Nichols and then Youngblood made impressive stops on Wakefield breakaways.

With the score knotted at zero at the end of regulation, the teams squared off for two 10-minute overtime periods. Broughton was the aggressor early in the first overtime period, but was unable to score.

Wakefield came out strong in the second overtime, forcing Morton to make another save with six minutes to go in the game.

Jack Krueger
But then, two minutes later, Krueger lofted a long ball into the box and the Caps' Chris Vlahoplus was able to head it over the Wakefield keeper's reach and into the net to give Broughton a 1-0 lead.

Broughton then held off a frantic Wakefield attack over the next four minutes to secure the Cap 8 road win.

A big shout out to the Broughton parents and fans who made the long trip to Wakefield and then sat through the cold wind and rain to cheer on the Caps.

Soccer: Caps Frustrated in Loss to Sanderson

The Caps suffered a 0-3 home loss to Sanderson on Monday night despite controlling possession for much of the game.

Broughton had several scoring opportunities, but shots were either just wide or at the Sanderson keeper. Sanderson scored two of its goals on set pieces, one off of a free kick toward the end of the first half and another off a long throw-in midway through the second half.

The Caps will try to get back to their recent winning ways when they play at Wakefield on Wednesday.

Earlier, the junior varsity team settled for a 0-0 tie with Sanderson in a game in which both teams had multiple scoring opportunities.

Broughton Varsity Volleyball Extends Undefeated Record to 12-0 in Conference!

After an exciting week and two hard fought matches, the Lady Caps maintain their undefeated status (12-0) in the Cap 8 Conference by defeating Leesville and Millbrook. Travelling to Leesville last Tuesday, the Broughton Varsity Volleyball won in straight sets, 27-25, 28-26, and 25-12. As the scores indicate, the first two sets could have gone either way, but the girls found a way to hold off the scrappy Pride and pull out a victory.

Thursday's match brought Millbrook to Holliday Gym looking to avenge their loss to Broughton at home earlier this season. Unlike their first match up, the Lady Caps came out ready to play in the first set and found a battle on their hands. Broughton edged Millbrook in the first set 26-24, and then behind some terrific serving and defense, the won the second set easily 25-13. Millbrook wasn't ready to go home yet and in an exciting third set that saw the lead change hands several times, they won 26-24. The fourth set saw more of the same excitement and once again Millbrook came away with the win, 25-22 forcing a deciding fifth set. Coach Traci Smith reminded the returning players of what took place last year, where Millbrook won in 5 sets, and challenged the team to come together and not let that happen again, not in "their house!". The girls responded beautifully and captured the last set and the match 15-12. This grueling battle lasted over 2 1/2 hours and Broughton amassed a whopping 55 kills, 78 digs and 11 aces.

Thank you to all the fans that came out to support the Lady Caps and made their presence known in a loud and boisterous fashion. The team really appreciates all the support!

This week brings three critical matches for the Broughton Varsity Volleyball team. They will travel to Sanderson on Monday, 10/7 followed by what will be another tough match-up on Tuesday, 10/8 against Wakefield at home. This match up is important for several reasons.....it is their last conference match, it is Senior Night and both teams should be battling for first place in the final conference standings, depending on Monday's results. Thursday, 10/10 will be the first round of the Cap 8 Conference Championships, and it will be at Holliday Gym, since the Lady Caps will be the higher seed!

Please come out and support this fabulous group of girls, show our seniors how much we support them and thank them for their years of hard work and help cheer these Lady Caps on to a Conference Championship!!!!!

Soccer: Strong Start Seals Win Over Millbrook

An aggressive Broughton team overwhelmed Millbrook in the first half and then held on in the second half for a 3-0 road win Wednesday night that vaults the Caps into a tie for third in the Cap 8 conference race.
Matt Brickhouse

The Caps' Matt Brickhouse got the scoring started midway through the first half when he took a pass from Rosendo Sierra-Flores and slid the ball past the Millbrook keeper. Just two minutes later, Brickhouse scored again when he finished off a shot by Ike Drooz that the Millbrook keeper couldn't handle.

Broughton keeper Trey Morton kept Millbrook off the scoreboard when he made a save on a Millbrook shot from just inside the box with about nine minutes to go in the half.

The Caps' Daniel Wiggins helped put Broughton up 3-0 with just four minutes to go in the half when he stole the ball from a Millbrook defender and passed to Drooz, who put the ball in the back of the net.

Ike Drooz
Millbrook was the aggressor for much of the second half, forcing Broughton keeper Frankie Stallings to make several saves to preserve the shutout. Brickhouse just missed on a couple of chances to earn a hat trick, but Broughton held on for its sixth win in its last seven games.

Earlier, the junior varsity team lost 1-3. Sheenaymu "C" Gay scored for Broughton.

The Caps return home on Monday night for an important game against Sanderson. Come out and cheer the team on to a strong finish to the regular season. Go Caps!

Broughton continued to apply pressure, with defenders Ben Youngblood and Jack Krueger just missing wide on shots over the next two minutes.

Six minutes later, Krueger gave the Caps a 3-0 lead going into the half when he fired a pass from Matt Brickhouse into the back of the net for his first goal of the season.

Jack Krueger
Leesville came out aggressively to begin the second half, with Krueger stopping a potential Leesville goal off a corner kick less than three minutes into the half. Leesville finally got on the scoreboard when they converted a penalty kick awarded due to an inadvertent hand ball in the box by a Broughton defender.

But Broughton eventually regained control of the game, with the Caps' Chris Vlahoplus just missing on a shot 12 minutes into the half.

About midway through the half, Broughton took a 4-1 lead when Ibrahim Mohamud headed in a shot by the Caps' Yusef Mohamud that bounced off the center post.

Soccer: Caps Earn Shutout at Wake Forest

An aggressive Caps team scored a decisive 3-0 road win over Wake Forest Wednesday night to kick off the second half of the conference season.

Broughton's Matt Brickhouse got the scoring started 15 minutes into the game when he finished off a crossing pass from Ibrahim Mohamud. The Caps pressured Wake Forest throughout the first half, with Ike Drooz just missing on a shot off a corner kick with about eight minutes to go in the half.

Frankie Stallings
Keeper Trey Morton made a save on a Wake Forest shot in the final minute of the first half, which ended with the Caps up 1-0.

Broughton continued to play aggressively as the second half began, and took a 2-0 lead when Drooz slid the ball into the goal after the Wake Forest keeper failed to stop the breakaway. Brickhouse assisted on the goal.

Wake Forest picked up its intensity midway through the second half, but the Broughton defense rose to the challenge. Defenders Brooks Nichols, Ben Youngblood, Jack Krueger and Hyu A played tough, with Hyu making a nice save with about 13 minutes to go in the game.

Keeper Frankie Stallings made a diving save with about 11 minutes to go in the game - the first of several saves by Stallings as Wake Forest frantically tried to get on the scoreboard. A Wake Forest player was given a yellow card after running into Stallings as he grabbed a shot, and Stallings made another diving save with six minutes left in the game.

Hyu A
Broughton scored its third goal when a free kick by Chris Vlahoplus into a scrum in front of the goal bounced off the Caps' Rosendo Sierra-Flores and into the net with five minutes left in the game.

It was the second shutout of the night for Broughton, as the junior varsity team won 4-0.

Soccer: Broughton Loses Battle of PKs

Two quick goals by Heritage to start the game proved to be the edge in what turned out to be a tense back-and-forth road game that Broughton ultimately lost 2-4.

Ike Drooz
Broughton was in the hole almost from the beginning of the game, as Heritage scored twice in the first three minutes.

But the Caps regrouped, and got on the scoreboard when Ike Drooz converted a penalty kick after a Broughton player was fouled in the box. Keeper Frankie Stallings made a nice save as Heritage went on the attack following the penalty kick, and defender Jack Krueger made a save off of a Heritage corner kick.

Both teams had multiple scoring chances in the second half, with Broughton keeper Trey Morton making three saves during a four-minute stretch more than midway through the half.

Then, with just over eight minutes left in the game, Broughton's Chris Vlahoplus converted another penalty kick to tie the score at 2-2.

Chris Vlahoplus
But about four minutes later, the referee called a penalty on Broughton inside the box, and Heritage converted to take a 2-3 lead.

Broughton mounted a furious attempt to tie the game, with Wilbur Gazga and Rosendo Sierra-Flores just missing on shots. Morton made another good save with less than two minutes to go in the game. But then, with Broughton pushing up for one last chance, Heritage's forwards broke free in the last 30 seconds to score the game's final goal.

Earlier, the junior varsity defeated Heritage, 3-0. Keeper Edgar Romero made three saves to preserve the shutout.

Volleyball: Lady Caps Continue Their Winning Ways! Big Upset Over Wakefield and now ranked 5th in the state 4A standings!


The Broughton Varsity Volleyball team had an amazing week with victories over Wakefield and Enloe!
 
The earlier match of the week saw two 6-0 teams in conference battle it out for 1st place bragging rights as the end of the first half of the season came to a close. Broughton went into Wakefield as the underdogs in a highly anticipated match up that brought out the fans for both teams (although, I do believe Broughton's were louder)!  After dropping a nervous first set 17-25, Broughton found their groove and began playing the type of never quit volleyball they know how to play!  They captured the second set 25-23 and then dropped another closely contested set, 23-25, with some amazing kills, digs and aces by both teams.  Coach Traci Smith challenged the girls to never give up and keep fighting.  The girls did exactly that and won the last two sets, 25-21 and 15-11, finishing with an on court celebration that led to a mini pile up!  Broughton finished the match with a whopping 51 kills, 18 aces and 66 digs.  They showed a never die attitude and prevailed over an extremely talented Wakefield team.  (see Raleigh N&O write up and pics in links below).
 
 
 
 
The other match up of the week had Broughton start the second half of the seasontraveling to face Enloe HS.  They won that match 3-1.  The Lady Caps took the first set easily 25-10, but fell in the second 18-25 after Enloe picked up their game.  Broughton came right back and finished off the match 25-10 and 25-14. The Lady Caps had 50 kills, 12 aces and 45 digs in that match up.
 
The Broughton Varsity Volleyball team is 8-0 in conference and 12-1-1 overall. MaxPreps.com has Broughton Volleyball ranked 5th in the state in the 4A standings and 162nd in the National rankings, moving up 92 spots from last week!
 
Next week brings a flurry of home matches where the Lady Caps will play 3 consecutive matches at Holliday Gym Tuesday, September 24 - Thursday, September 26.  Please come out and support your talented Lady Caps and enjoy some pretty awesome volleyball as well!

Soccer: Caps Dominate in Win Over Enloe

The Caps overwhelmed the visiting Enloe Eagles Wednesday night, winning 4-0 for their second consecutive conference victory.

Matt Brickhouse
Broughton controlled the possession for much of the first half and put constant pressure on the Enloe defense, finally breaking through with a goal by Matt Brickhouse a little more than midway through the half. Chris Vlahoplus assisted.

About five minutes later, the Caps' Ike Drooz caught Enloe's keeper flat-footed with a shot from about 25 yards out. Broughton took a 2-0 lead into halftime.

Broughton continued to pressure Enloe in the second half, and the Caps' Yusef Mohamud fired a shot into the back of the net for the team's third goal. Ben Youngblood assisted.

Only then did Enloe manage to apply some pressure on Broughton, with keeper Trey Morton having to make a save about 11 minutes into the second half.

Brooks Nichols
But Broughton came roaring back, with Vlahoplus sending a pass ahead to Brickhouse, who followed up his own shot after it bounced off the Enloe keeper to score his second goal of the night and Broughton's fourth goal.

Following the lead of defender Brooks Nichols and Morton, Broughton held on for its first shutout of the season.

Earlier, the junior varsity team lost 0-3 to Enloe.

Soccer: Caps Roll Over Wakefield, 4-2

Wakefield struck first, scoring less than three minutes into the game Monday night, but Broughton roared back for a 4-2 conference win on its home field.

Daniel Wiggins
The Caps' Wilbur Gazga tied the score, 1-1, midway through the first half when he fired a shot past the Wakefield keeper. Chris Vlahoplus assisted on the goal. About seven minutes later, Broughton's Daniel Wiggins finished a 2-on-1 break for the Caps when he flicked a pass from Yusef Mohamud into the back of the net.

Broughton took a 3-1 lead into halftime after Ike Drooz placed a free kick into the upper corner of the goal with about 10 minutes left in the first half.

Both teams missed on scoring opportunities in the second half before Wakefield scored off a cross on a free kick from just outside the box, giving Broughton a slim 3-2 lead with about 17 minutes left to play.

Ike Drooz
But Vlahoplus quickly scored with a nice shot from outside the box, giving the Caps an insurmountable 4-2 lead for their second conference win. Keeper Frankie Stallings and defender Ben Youngblood made good saves late in the game to hold off Wakefield.
