Chargers defeated

Wayne Country Day just couldn't make the net wiggle.

The Chargers just missed converting an early goal and Faith Christian-Rocky Mount claimed a 6-0 victory on the Coastal Plains Independent 1-A Conference scene Friday afternoon.

"We had a game plan that depended on an early goal," said WCDS head coach Baron Heinemann. "If our shot in the first minute hadn't gone just wide of the far post, but had actually gone in, this might have been a drastically different game."

The short-handed Chargers, who competed with no subs, battled against a more-experienced Patriots squad. Clayton Kelly posted a hat trick (three goals) for state-ranked Faith Christian. Seth Muller notched two goals, while Louis Griffin added one goal.

"I am so very proud of my guys tonight," said Heinemann. "A lesser group of players would've rolled over and let this extremely talented team 'kill' them. (The guys) played with heart and intensity the entire game.

"I continue to be amazed at the heart these boys show from game to game, and I can't stress how pleased I am with the future of the WCDS soccer program."

Faith Christian owned a 17-12 edge in shots.

Wayne Country Day (4-8-0 overall, 0-2-0 CPIC) entertains Ahoskie Ridgecroft on Tuesday.
