HICKORY -- A final four team last season, Hickory punched in two second-half goals in the final 20 minutes and turned back Wayne Country Day, 2-1, on Friday afternoon.

Ramel Carpenter put the Chargers in front 1-0 on an assist from Noah Adkins in the first half.

Hickory pressured the WCDS defense and notched the game-tying goal midway through the final half. The Chargers surrendered the game-winning goal with about five minutes left in regulation.
