BYE, BYE, BUCCANEERS!
#11 ranked Broughton's women's soccer team welcomed #7 ranked E. A. Laney High School from Wilmington for the second round of the NCHSAA 4-A play-offs Friday night. It was a beautiful night for the beautiful game, and the Buccaneers, in stereotypical "beach" style, arrived late for the kick-off. The extra warm-up did not affect the Caps one bit, as the ladies came out firing and when it was all said and done, walked off the pitch with a 5-1 result and a Tuesday night third round match-up against undefeated and #1 East seeded D. H. Conley High School in Greenville (although ranked #10 in the final Eurosport poll). Broughton got goals on the night from 5 different players:
12th minute - Daisy King;
32nd minute - Savannah Jones;
39th minute - Sarah Grace Lasso;
55th minute - Meredith Brown;
63rd minute - Emma Willard.
The Buccaneers managed to one goal past senior captain goal keeper Allie Cutler in the 69th minute. Please make the hour and a half drive to Conley Tuesday night to cheer on the Caps and keep the momentum going all the way to the State Championship! Game time is 6:00.
