Wheatmore’s lone conference defeat came by 5-4 at Southwestern Randolph. The Warriors avenged that loss a few weeks later with a 6-3 victory.

Boys’ soccer

Wheatmore remained undefeated through last week, but nothing much has been solved between the Warriors and rival Trinity.

Those teams tied for the second time this year. Last week’s 2-2 outcome left the teams atop the PAC standings. With two weeks left in the regular season, Wheatmore held a 5-0-2 league mark and Trinity was next at 4-0-2.

Trinity scored two first-half goals before Wheatmore responded with goals from Hayden Hemming and Anakin Leister.

Overall, Wheatmore held an 11-0-2 mark, while Trinity was at 9-3-2.

In the Mid-Piedmont Conference, Asheboro topped Ledford 4-0 in the first meeting of the season between teams as Cristian Cruz scored two goals and Cristian Ortiz and Calvin Smith had the other goals.

The Blue Comets moved to 14-1 overall and the lone remaining team with an unbeaten mark in Mid-Piedmont Conference play.
