Leesville Road scrapes by Apex; Fuquay falls
May 15, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
RALEIGH - Leesville Road’s girls soccer team took another step toward defending their state title on Friday night with a comeback 2-1 win over Apex in the second round of the NCHSAA 4A playoffs.
The Pride (24-1-1), champions of the Cap-8 Conference, claimed their second win of the season over the Cougars (13-7-1) after previously defeating the third-seeded Tri-Nine squad 2-0 in the regular season.
But Leesville coach Paul Dinkenor said this match was much tougher for his team.
“Apex was seriously ready to play,” Dinkenor said. “I don’t think it was one of our prettiest wins, but defensively we gutted it out.”
“It was a highly competitive game from start to finish,” said Apex coach Kevin Todd. “The emotion on both sides showed that this was a game that was going to be settled in the last few minutes.”
