Friday night brought intensity and hype as the JV and Varsity boys soccer teams played against the Campbell Spartans. Despite JV falling 0-2, and Varsity drawing 2-2, the Warriors fought hard.

JV coach Buckles explained “I think we played well, that team is two games in and this was our first game, I didn’t really have any expectations, in a positive way though. I felt like we made good adjustments and played well.”

The Varsity game proved interesting game, full of screaming and yellow cards. The game, ending in a tie, fiercely and evenly matched. Although a referee stormed out of a game 29 minutes early and players suffered injuries, NC pushed through. Goalie and senior Devon Delameter says “I  think we played pretty well, it was a great team effort and everyone worked hard to grind out the tie.”

Although not the best way to start off the season for JV, sophomore Rigo Duron says “I feel like we are going to play very well, but we do need to clean up some stuff in the midfield and the attack, I think our backline was solid, but that’s really the only thing I have to critique.”
