KINSTON -- Rosewood's Erin Thibodeau and Stephanie Behrend scored three goals each to guide the Eagles to season-opening, 6-0 win at Kinston on Monday.

Rachel McCormick dished out three assists, while Clare Narron added one assist.

Rosewood's defense limited the Vikings (0-1) to zero shots on goal for the game.

"The midfield did a good job of controlling the ball and setting up the forwards," Rosewood assistant coach Brian Brewer said. "They looked really good. It was a just a good first game."

Rosewood (1-0) travels to county rival Charles B. Aycock on Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Rose blanks Golden Falcons

GREENVILLE -- Charles B. Aycock never found the net as Greenville Rose claimed a 4-0 win over the Golden Falcons on Monday.

"It wasn't a real good showing after we had Thursday and Friday off of school," Aycock coach John Fiddler said. "Rose played a solid game. I think we had two shots on net."

Aycock (0-1) will try and bounce back at home on Wednesday against Rosewood.
