WHS SOCCER FALLS SHORT

 

The Watauga High men's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision at No.6 Hickory Wednesday night.
The game's only goal came at the 35-minute mark of the first half. Ironically, it was a controversial goal as the Red Tornadoes were originally flagged for being off sides, but the call was reversed and they scored on the play.
"It was one of those judgement calls," said WHS coach Woody McKay. "Not much you can do about it. But our guys fought hard, and I really thought we controlled the pitch in the second half. We had our chances, but we couldn't buy a goal.
"It was a good effort, though. Consider we were missing some of our key players (because of injury). I think, we have a chance against these guys when they come to Boone. I really think we have a chance to win the (Northwestern 3A/4A) conference this season."
The loss also snapped WHS's six-game winning streak. The Pioneers (8-2 overall, 1-1 NW3A/4A) will have another huge test on MOnday when they travel to Clemmons to play West Forsyth, which is ranked ninth in the state in Class 4A.
"West Forsyth has a great soccer reputation," McKay said. "They're always ranked, and this game will give us an idea of just where we stand at the (Class) 4A level when the state playoffs begin (in November)."
The JV team (5-1-2; 0-1-1 NW3A/4A) suffered its first loss of the season Wednesday night. Justin Hall scored an unassisted goal two minutes into the second half. But Hickory chipped away and eventually won the game on a penalty kick with a minute to go.

 

WHS XC DOMINATES AGAIN

 

The Watauga High cross country teams gave their best runners the day off, but it had no effect on their performance.
The WHS men rested their top five runners, but the Pioneers still had 13 runners among the top 15 finishers. Robert Seagle paced WHS by finishing second in 18:49. Luke Johnson finished third in 19:04.
On the women's side, WHS rested its top eight runners, but the Pioneers still had seven finishers among the top ten finishsers. Cynthia Jackson finished second in 23:12; Anna Schulz-Coulon finished third in 23:39.

WOLVERINES UPENDED BY EAST ALEXANDER

 

The Watauga Middle School football team suffered its first loss of the year Wednesday night in Taylorsville.
East Alexander built a 32-0 lead by the third quarter, and hung on to beat the Wolverines, 32-24. Quarterback Andrewe Dobbins paced Watauga (2-1) with a pair of touchdown passes. He also scored a touchdown and ran for a two-point conversion. Nick Sherman and Hamilton Castle each caught a touchdown pass; Castle also scored a pair of two-point conversions.
Tanner Byrd and Dakota Finger each had a fumble recovery; Case Taylor caused a fumble, and middle linebacker Jake Campbell led the team in tackles.
The Wolverines return home to play Hudson Wednesday, September 21. That will also be the fund-raising game, "Wolverines Running For Community."  Donors can contribute $1 for every yard the Wolverines have in total offensive yardage for the game with a maximum of $100 per donor.  An examples: if the Wolverines pick up 100 yards of total offense, donor will give $100. But if the Wolverines only have $50 yards total offense, the donor will contribute $50. And if the Wolverines pick up 200 yards, the donor will contribute $100, which is the maximum donation for this event.
Also the Wolverines will accept any donation, if a donor would rather contribute a specific amount of money if they don't want to participate in the yardage program. And the Wolverine players will present the family or families in need with the proceeds at their football banquet in October.
For more information, please call the following phone numbers: 828-773-7729 or 828-265-3087.
