Soccer ‘Dogs down Rockets, 1-0


The Roxboro Community School soccer team got a late first half goal and made it stand up in its 1-0 victory at Person High School Tuesday. It was the Bulldogs’ first win of the season and followed that with a 2-1 victory against Oxford Prep.

Person and RCS each had their chances in the first half, but the Bulldogs finally broke through when Luke Allen got the ball past the Rockets’ keeper with a little under seven minutes to play.

Both teams threatened in the second half, but were never able to break through.

The Rockets finished up the week with a 5-0 loss to Bartlett Yancey Wednesday.

Person will be back in action Wednesday when it travels to Bartlett Yancey, while RCS will challenge East Wake Academy Monday. The Bulldogs faced Falls Lake Academy Friday, but the results were unavailable at press time.
