Cardinals tie Bishop
PILOT MOUNTAIN — East Surry soccer coach Bill Hart said that in order for his squad to become an elite team, it needs to be able to compete with Elkin, Bishop McGuinness and Surry Central. The Cardinals can scratch the first two off that list.
A night after toppling Elkin, the Cardinals (8-6-1, 5-4-1 Northwest 1A/2A) clawed their way to a 0-0 tie with Bishop McGuinness Tuesday.
While two halves and two 10-minute overtimes could not produce a scorer, both goal tenders had great games. The Cardinals’ Dallas Hartley stopped all 15 shots she faced and registered his third shutout of the year.
“This is Dallas’ first year playing,” Hart said. “He’s stepped up into a role he was unfamiliar with and gave us an unbelievable season so far, more than we could have ever expected.”
Hart also pointed out the stellar play of his defensemen Jesse Smith, Trevor Simmons, J.P. Sigmon and Chase Nichols.
Bears top North Stokes, 2-1
Mount Airy fell behind early but came back to beat North Stokes, 2-1, Tuesday.
Chase Pilcher found the net for the first time in four games to even the score, and freshman Alex Torres provided the go-ahead goal to lift Mount Airy to 6-8 overall and 4-5 in Northwest 1A/2A conference play.
