The Watauga High girl's soccer team will play A.C. Reynolds in the second
round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Class 4A State Playoffs Saturday night at Jack Groce Stadium at 6 p.m.
The Rockets (19-2-3), the No.2 seed from the Mountain Athletic 3A/4A Conference, advanced to the second round by blasting East Gaston 7-1 Wednesday night in Asheville.
Nina Stapleton led the Rockets with two goals; Karissa Grooms had three assists, Makalya Ballinger had a goal and an assist in Wednesday night's win.
It's also the second meeting between the schools. The Rockets defeated WHS 7-1 way back on February 27. The Pioneers (9-8-3) advanced to the second round by knocking off Mooresville 1-0 in the opening round Tuesday night. That win snapped a four-game losing streak.
