#11 6:14 – GOAL AVERY!!!!! Emily Banner leads Chesnut with a beautiful pass leaving a one-on-one with the Keeper giving Avery the 3-0 advantage and a great contest!!!   Short time remaining!

#10 21:01 – Avery Ladies still clinging to a 2-0 margin behind some great play and spectacular defense.  Lake Norman seems to have woken up a little, but still have 20 minutes to play with Lady Vikes still holding most of the control in the contest.

#9 30:32 – Free Kick attempt for the Lady Knights just outside of the box, headed out by the Lake Norman ladies.   Great defense, and some great offensive pushes by the Lady Vikes to hold to a 2-0 lead.

#8 39:01 2nd Half – GOAL AVERY!!!!!!!! Cassie Bumgarner finds Elyse Perry in the box for Avery’s second goal of the contest giving Avery the 2-0 lead.  Lake Norman seems to be on their heels a little here to start the second half.

#7 Halftime – Lady Vikings with a 1-0 lead at the half with a great first half of action and an amazing goal off the foot of Mary Chesnut Smith on a great maneuver into the box and nets a goal from 30 yards out over the keeper’s head.   Great first half for the Lady Vikings!  40 minutes to go here in Newland.  The winner of today’s contest moves on to the NCHSAA 1A State Championship contest against SW Onslow who defeated Raleigh Charter yesterday evening.

#6 4:58 – GOAL AVERY!!!!!!!!  Chesnut scores the first goal of the post season on the Lady Knights with a beautiful play and placing one just out of the Keeper’s reach.  Avery takes the 1-0 lead.

#5 9:45 – Lady Vikings battling, and from all appearances, LNCS seems to be head hunting Avery’s best players.  Large amount of contact with a number of no calls, but Lady Vikes still battling tough and two teams pushing each other to the limits.  Contests has been everything it was billed as thus far.

#4 20:44 – Smith reenters and a foul gives Avery a free kick from 25 yards out, missed just high by Smith.  Very well played contest thus far.  Still time to come out to the Stadium if you are in town!

Update #3 23:44 – Still scoreless in Newland as the crowd is silent.  Viking leader Mary Chesnut Smith injured on a play and on the field.  coming off the field, but a big blow to the Lady Vikings at this time. Unsure of the situation at this time.

Update #2:  30:00 –  Lady Vikings with a couple of good chances at the goal, and Lake Norman matching their efforts.  Quality gameplay to this point in the contest.

Update #1:  39:00 1st half – Avery controls the ball first, but a great defensive stop and some good movement of the ball from both teams.  Great start to the action.

Avery reached the NCHSAA 1A semifinal with a huge 3-0 victory over North Moore in the state quarterfinal; while Lake Norman enters the contest off a 1-0 victory at Bishop McGuinness.

Neither team has allowed a goal in the post-season this year, and it shapes up to be a great contest between the two schools.
