Asheboro boys keep

rolling in soccer

ASHEBORO – The Asheboro boys’ soccer team has picked up state rankings on the way to a perfect record through 10 games of the season.

The Blue Comets have made some schedule adjustments, but those didn’t slow down the team.

Asheboro added a home game against Langtree Charter Academy, winning 1-0 on Thursday night for the 10th win of the season. Cristian Ortiz scored the second-half goal on an assist from Ozmar Martinez.

This week, a road game against Southwestern Randolph has been wiped off the schedule. In its place, the Blue Comets instead will visit Wesleyan Christian Academy on Tuesday night.

Asheboro opens Mid-Piedmont Conference play next Monday night against Oak Grove.
