West Lincoln in golf; East Lincoln in softball. The regular seasons for these girls sports came to an end this week. We already reported on the West girls taking the golf title again. East Lincoln finished both the soccer and softball seasons with wins: the soccer team beat Newton-Conover on Wednesday 8-0 to finish with an 11-3 record, good enough for second place in the South Fork Conference behind unbeaten (14-0) Lake Norman Charter. Maiden finished third with a record of 8-5-1.
The East Lincoln softball team didn't have a perfect season. They lost one game--at West Lincoln last Tuesday 4-2. They won Thursday's game 15-0 over Lake Norman Charter to finish 13-1. Bandys finished second with a 10-4 record; North Lincoln was third at 9-5. In other games Thursday, the Trojans beat Maiden 5-1; North downed West 6-5.
In other soccer games, North downed Bandys on Wednesday 2-0 to improved to 6-6-1. They still had a match scheduled for Thursday against Newton-Conover, but we didn't get a report on the score. Maiden beat Lincolnton 4-3 Wednesday; West lost to Lake Norman Charter 9-0.
Both the East Lincoln softball and girls soccer teams will be in the NCHSAA playoffs starting next week. Lake Norman Charter will also be in the soccer playoffs and Bandys in the softball playoffs.
The Lincoln Charter girls soccer team lost to Southern Piedmont 1A champ Christ the King on Wednesday 4-2 to finish the season with a 7-3 record and third place in the league. We didn't get a report on the Eagles softball team's game Thursday at Piedmont Community Charter, but they had already wrapped up the league title with a 6-0 conference mark before that game. They'll be in the state playoffs. The Cherryville softball team still had a chance at a wild card bid to the NCHSAA 1A softball playoffs.
