North Johnston rallies past Rosewood
KENLY -- Rosewood led third-ranked North Johnston for 81 minutes before the Panthers posted two late goals to claim a 2-1 win at home on Wednesday in a Class 1-A Carolina/Super Six Conference clash.
The Eagles (5-6-1, 2-1 Carolina/SS) went up 1-0 in the 27th minute of the first half when Kyle Bunn knocked in a corner kick from Matt Howell. The 1-0 lead stood until halftime.
