Local roundup: Central starts girls tennis season with win

Posted

ANGIER — Harnett Central began its fall girls tennis season with a 6-3 victory over Rosewood at home Wednesday.

No. 2 seed Sophie McLean, third-seeded Lauren Faulkner, No. 5 Kylie Guerrero and No. 6 Lauren Godfrey each grabbed wins for Central in singles action.

In doubles play, the freshman duo of Faulkner and Godfrey secured a win at No. 2, while Guerrero and Jeffries also claimed a victory in the No. 3 seed matchup.

Up next, the Lady Trojans (1-0) are matched with Southern Wake on Monday.

Midway soccer remains unbeaten

Abraham Florido and Felipe Penick-Aguilar powered Midway to its fourth-straight win to open the boys soccer season, topping Lakewood 2-1 on the road Monday.

The two clubs were tied 1-1 at the half and the Raiders’ sole second-half goal was enough to get them through the finish line.

Ruben Morales and Junior Acosta each registered an assist, while Jake Hammond collected five saves to keep the Raiders undefeated through its non-league slate.

Midway’s contest against Triton Wednesday was rescheduled to Thursday, Sept. 23 because of an irrigation pipe leak. The Raiders are set to return home Tuesday against North Duplin.

In other local soccer action, Western Harnett was shut out 3-0 at Union Pines during its season opener Wednesday. Hobbton was also held scoreless Wednesday, losing 3-0 at home to North Johnston.
