Lincolnton beat Bunker Hill 9-0 Monday (Sept. 11th) to improve to 3-2-3 on the season and more important to win the Wolves' first Catawba Valley Conference game of the year. LHS established a 5-0 lead in the first half and added four more goals in the second. We'd love to tell you more, but no details were provided.
Maybe the lightning lit up the Trojans
West Lincoln held the Trojans to one goal before their game at Bandys was halted by a thunderstorm Monday afternoon. When play resumed, Bandys struck with three more goals before halftime. West managed a single goal late in the contest, but Bandys scored four more in the second half for an 8-1 win. The win gives the Trojans a 5-2-1 overall record and 1-0 in the CVAC. West is 0-3-1. Freshman Edwin Ramirez scored the Rebels solo goal Monday.
