A 44th-minute free kick by Isabella Corder led to a Hannah Hendrix goal for J.H. Rose in its 3-A girls’ soccer third-round playoff clash with host Clayton on Wednesday, but the Rampants could not find any further offense to overcome a 2-0 halftime deficit in a 5-1 loss.

“We didn't play like we did at Southern Alamance on Saturday,” Head coach Tim Dameron said, referring to his team’s victory in the second round.

The Rampants (14-7-2) return much of their offensive firepower for next season, including April Zeng, who led the Eastern Carolina 3A/4A Conference in points (48), and McKinsey Walter, who finished tied for second in goals  with 19.

“We're bringing back 70 of our 90 goals next season, so I'm excited for next year,” Dameron said.

Asheville Christian 2, Parrott Academy 1

Asheville Christian Academy scored two early goals in the first half and made them hold up the rest of the way as the Lions defeated Parrott Academy in the NCISAA 2A state semifinals, 2-1 on Tuesday night.

It is the second consecutive year Asheville Christian has ended the Patriots’ season in the semifinal round.

It was 2-0 until the 77th minute, when Scarlet Combs tallied a goal for Parrott (15-5) in a massive scramble to make it 2-1. Asheville Christian outshot Parrott 25-13, with goalie Alli Grant Avery collecting 13 saves.

Patriots finish fourth

The Parrott Academy golf team finished in fourth place in the NCISAA 2A state championship at the Country Club of Whispering Pines. The Patriots shot a final team score of 661, led by Jackson Crocker, who shot 82 in day two for a total score of 160.

Behind Crocker for Parrott were Griffin Steelman (81-85-166), Colby Tant (83-84-167), Holden Killinger (87-82-169), Matthew Richardson (88-84-172) and Hayes Mahoney (95-85-180).

O'Neal School (587) took first place ahead of St. David's School (603) and Harrells Christian Academy (659).
