The Watuaga High boys soccer team picked up its first post-season win since 2008 on Wednesday night.
The Pioneers (16-5-1 overall), the No1 seed from the Northwestern 3A/4A Conference, knocked off Mooresville 2-1 in double overtime at Jack Groce Stadium in the opening round of the Class 4A state playoffs. The win moves WHS into a second-round game

Saturday at home against Mallard Creek. The Mavericks (14-7-3), the No.3 seed from the I-Meck Conference, defeated A.C. Reynolds 4-1 in their first-round game.
Zach Helms, who was the leading scorer in the NW3A/4A with 13 goals, scored the game winner at the six-minute mark of the second overtime period. Matt Enterline set things up with a long throw in.
"It was a great goal by Zach," said WHS coach Woody McKay, who picked up his first post-season win with the Pioneers. "Matt placed it beautifully right in front of the goal, and Zach tapped it in. It's a great win for these guys, a great experience. It's a big reward for the regular season they had."
Alex Parsons scored WHS's first goal on a penalty kick at the 25 minute mark of the first half. But the Blue Devils (8-10-2) tied it up at the 60-minute mark of the second half.
"It was a great goal," McKay said. "They made a beautiful cross and we couldn't defend it. But we won the game, and that's all that matters. We passed our first test, and we'll get ready for Saturday second-round game."
