The Watauga High men's soccer team picked up a road win by blanking South Caldwell 4-0 Wednesday night in Sawmills in a Northwestern 3A/4A Conference game. Alex Parsons, who has

a team-leading 19 goals on the year, opened the scoring for WHS (14-2-3 overall; 6-1-2 in the NW3A/4A) when he scored at the six-minute mark of the first half for a 1-0 lead. Logan Raichle picked up the assist on that goal.
Parsons had two goals on the night; Raichle had three assists. Trey Ollis and Justin Hall also scored for WHS; Tucker Chasteen picked up an assist.
"We didn't play well, especially in the second half." said WHS coach Woody McKay.  "If we had been playing a good team tonight, we would have lost."
WHS has earned a No.1 seed among the Class 4A schools in the league, and the Pioneers still have a shot a winning their first league title since 2007. But Hickory (20-1; 9-1) kept pace with the Pioneers with a 5-3 overtime win against Hibriten Wednesday night. WHS trails Hickory by one game for first place and needs a loss by Hickory next week to move into sole possession of first place in the conference.
The Pioneers have Hibriten at home Monday night (on Senior Night) and will close out the regular season at St. Stephens next Wednesday. The Red Tornadoes have St. Stephens and Fred T. Foard remaining on the schedule. The Indians defeated the Tigers 4-1 last night.
WHS won the JV game with a decisive 5-1 drubbing of the South Caldwell Wednesday evening.  The Pioneers improved their overall record to 12-3-4. Jakie Irwin had a goal and an assist for the Pioneers; Nick Kellner scored twice; Will Spinetto had a goal and an assist; and Chase Palm had a goal and two assists.
