Playing host to their first ever second round state playoff match University Christian squared off against the Lions from Trinity School of Durham and Chapel Hill. After a scoreless first half Eli Goebelbecker and Adam Gerrard scored on penalty kicks giving UCHS a 2-0 lead with twelve minutes remaining in the contest. TSDCH midfielder Connor Dunn scored from long range with eight minutes remaining to cut the margin to one goal at 2-1. Playing to force a tie Trinity’s net minder strayed too far out and Goebelbecker converted a steal into an empty net goal for the final 3-1 score.
The win moves Cody Miller’s Barracuda squad to 12-5 on the season and earns them a trip to top seeded Westchester Country Day on Saturday, October 19 at 6PM.
