Barracudas News · Barracudas Kick Their Way Into Quarterfinals of NCISAA 2A Soccer Playoffs

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.
