Local roundup: Hobbton girls soccer edges Rosewood

Triton softball, girls soccer get wins at Western


GOLDSBORO — Behind Olivia Williams' pair of first-half goals, the Hobbton girls soccer team inched past Rosewood 3-2 on the road Tuesday. 

The victory marked a second this week for the Lady Wildcats who also shut out Carolina 1A Conference opponent Lakewood on Monday. 

A late red card put an end to any hopes of a Rosewood equalizer in the second half. 

On the diamond, the Lady Wildcats fell to Rosewood 13-3.

Hobbton is scheduled to resume league play Wednesday, April 14 in a home match against Neuse Charter.

Triton gets softball, girls soccer wins at Western

During Tuesday's in-county pairing at Western Harnett, both the Triton softball and girls soccer teams notched road victories.

In the softball matchup, the Lady Hawks secured a third straight shutout, topping Western 10-0 in its Tri-County 3A Conference opener. 

Lady Hawks (3-2, 1-0 TCC) pitcher Gracyn Slaughter got the win, allowing zero runs and striking out four over five innings. 

A six-run sixth inning ended the contest early due to the run rule. Takya McLean, Kimah Warren, Kaila Cooney, Reagan Bradham and Aubree Bass each finished with two hits to lead the Lady Hawks, and they all had RBIs in the deciding frame. 

Katie Neel took the loss for Western (1-4, 0-2 TCC) after pitching a complete game and allowing 12 hits. 

Ava Basolt, Olivia Jackson, Alyssa Lauber and Maddie Burns each finished with a hit for the Lady Eagles. 

Triton looks to extend its three-game win streak at league-leading Union Pines on Wednesday, while Western travels to Lee County.

In the girls soccer contest, Billie Kate Pope's hattrick was the difference in Triton's 7-4 win at Western Harnett Tuesday. 

The clubs were knotted at 2 heading into intermission and the Lady Hawks outpaced the Lady Eagles by one goal in the second half to secure a third straight victory. 

Pope also finished with a pair of assists, helping Triton (4-1, 2-1 TCC) teammates Abby Hood and Sheila Hernandez find the net. 

Sofia Clinton, Silvia Nunez and Sarahit Martinez scored for Western (3-2, 2-1 TCC), who suffered its first loss in conference play. 

South softball blows past Smithfield-Selma 

The South Johnston softball team jumped on Greater Neuse River Conference foe Smithfield-Selma early and closed out a 23-0 win in four innings at home Tuesday. 

Kennedy Byrd and Tori James each had three hits to lead South (4-3, 2-1 GNRC), finishing with a season-high 18 total hits. 

The Lady Trojans duo also combined to pitch a no-hitter, while also notching nine strikeouts. 

Allie Stewart, Hannah Beasley, Hollyn Champagne and Caroline Tucker all finished with multiple hits. 

South is set to close the week at East Wake on Wednesday. 

Central girls soccer shut out at Lee County

Falling behind early, the Harnett Central girls soccer team couldn't figure out a tough Lee County defense, falling 3-0 on the road Tuesday. 

Gillian Garrison, Layton Griffin and Jazive Maldonado accounted for the Lady Jackets' (3-0, 2-0 TCC) goals. 

Central (4-3, 0-3 TCC) hosts Southern Lee Wednesday.
