The high school soccer season is only four games old in league play, but the Watauga High boys are

currently involved in a heated race for first place in the Northwestern 3A/4A Conference.
The Pioneers (11-0; 4-0 NW3A/4A Conference) held on to their share of the lead by knocking off South Caldwell 3-0 Wednesday night in a NW3A/4A Conference game in Sawmills, N.C.
Fred T. Foard (4-0 league play) kept pace as the Tigers knocked off St. Stephens 5-2 Wednesday night in Hickory. The Pioneers will play Fred T. Foard at home next Wednesday, September 25.
Justin Hall got WHS on the board as he scored a goal at the 38-minute mark of the first half. Hunter Martin picked up an assist on that play. Cam Linnville gave WHS a two-goal advantage less than a minute into the second half, thanks to a header ball by Logan Raichle. Tucker Chasteen closed things out as he tallied on a feed from Raichle at the 68-minute mark.
The Pioneers travel to St. Stephens on Monday. The junior varsity team won its match, 1-0. Powell Glidewell scored the game's only goal on a penalty kick.
