Lady CapsLax Rally Not Enough to Hold Off Wakefield

The Varsity Women's Lacrosse team got off to a quick start with a goal scored by Kelsey Dupere in the first minute of play. Wakefield came back with numerous answers, outscoring Broughton 11-6 in the first half. Despite the frigid, damp and slick conditions, the Lady Caps, fought back with passion in the second half and held the Wolverines to 7 goals.  The most bizarre event of the evening came with 19 minutes left on the game clock. The Wakefield goalie was charged with a penaty for wrapping up Madeline Crone in her stick, eliminating the goalie from further play for the evening.  The penalty shot was then taken and scored by Crone on an empty net.  There was a barrage of yellow cards on both sides in the second half. Broughton kept bringing their game, even scoring a last second shot to end the evening:  Wakefield 18--Broughton 15.  Other stats:  Kelsey Dupere-6 goals/ 1 assist; Madeline Crone-5 goals/ 1 shot off frame; Sydney Frye-3 goals; Sara Joyner-1 goal; Olivia Joyner (G)-4 saves.

Soccer: JV Women Defeat Pride

Broughton JV women's soccer defeated Leesville 1-0 yesterday in chilly, windy conditions with a goal by S. Barnes on a C. Black corner kick (one of about 10 expertly made).   The two keepers and defensive players warded off pressure by a determined Leesvile squad, and the never-give-up offense kept up their press even in the face of a seemingly inpenetrable goalie.   Today's game against Holly Springs has been rescheduled for April.  

The JV Caps head to Enloe Monday with a 3-1-1 record.

The season's stats thus far:

W  Wakefield  3 - 1   M. Colgan, J. Stevens (M. Zinner assist), A. Holloman (J. Stevens assist)

Women's Soccer-Caps Lose Hard Fought Match to Leesville

The Caps women's soccer team hosted the # 6 ranked Leesville Road Pride at 6:30 on Wednesday, March 13th.  The Pride controlled most of the first 40 minutes and scored early with a beautiful strike by Mary Kate Bowers from just beyond the right side of the 18 yard box into the far post net.  Leesville Road went up 2-0 before the half ended on a goal by Bailey Riggsbee.  After the halftime break, the Caps came out strong and pressured the Pride to start the second half.  Leesville Road was whistled for a handball in the box on a strike by Lily Schneider.  Senior captain Caroline Brown, who is headed to Villanova University next year, converted the penalty kick drawing the Caps closer at 2-1.  The Caps continued to press late into the game, but were unable to find the tying goal.    Broughton drops to 2-4 (1-3).  The Caps will be in action Monday at Enloe at 6:30.

“Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.” Arnold Palmer

Men's Golf Split Non-Con Openers

The Caps opened their season in tough conditions - spring has not sprung - so the windy and cold weather reigned in back-to-back non-conference matches.
Fielding their top six - the Caps brought home a win on Thursday in a challenge match against a seasoned Durham Riverside team at Croasdaile Country Club.
On Friday - the Caps traveled to the Keith Hills High School Kickoff in Buies Creek, NC. The tournament is played on both the Orange and Black courses - featuring some of the top men's golf teams from last year's state high school championships. Nevertheless - the Caps just couldn't come away with the win - in the end holding on for a third place finish.
The first few weeks of this Men's Golf season are packed with conference and non-conference matches - tomorrow they travel down the road for their first Cap8 Conference match of the season at the always rigorous North Ridge golf course.
Shake the winter chill off your clubs Caps and go show the Conference why you are the defending State Champions!

Never let up. The more you can win by, the more doubts you put in the other players' minds the next time out.
- Sam Snead
