NJ soccer splits pair

The North Johnston girls soccer team defeated North Pitt, 2-1, before falling to Eastern Plains Conference leaders Nash Central, 6-0, last week.

In the victory, Johanna Pacheco put the Panthers (3-7-1, 2-1 EPC) ahead in the first half thanks to a nice cross from Barrett Davis. However, North Johnston needed a late goal after conceding the equalizer.

Bulldogs keeping pace

The Princeton girls soccer team took care of a pair of conference opponents last week, remaining just one game back from Neuse Charter in the Carolina Conference standings.

First the Bulldogs (8-2, 6-1) beat Rosewood 5-1. Holding just a one goal lead at halftime, Princeton scored four goals in the second half to get the victory.

Panthers tennis unbeaten in EPC

The North Johnston boys tennis team picked up four wins in the Eastern Plains Conference last week after sweeping two doubleheaders against Farmville Central and North Pitt.

Against the Jaguars, the Panthers claimed a 6-0 win before rounding out the day with an 8-1 victory.

Bulldogs looking strong

The Princeton softball team took down rival Rosewood, 5-2, and picked up a non-conference win against Smithfield-Selma.

Against the Eagles, Hailey Woodall singled home Megan Bryant to give the Bulldogs an early lead. A two-out RBI single from Emily Ricks in the bottom of the second, a sacrifice fly from Woodall in the fourth and finally a two-run base hit from Brianna Myers in the sixth were more than enough support for Casey Mitchell to record the win.

North Johnston track looking strong

The North Johnston girls track team took a first-place finish in a tri-meet at Farmville Central last week while the boys team settled for a runner-up showing.

The girls dominated the distance events, claiming 27 of the possible 32 points and went on to total 69 points overall to beat out SouthWest Edgecombe, who finished in second place with 34 points.
