STANHOPE — The greatest girls soccer season in Southern Nash High history hit another milestone Thursday as the Ladybirds collected their 20th win with a 3-0 shutout of West Johnston in the second round of the NCHSAA 3-A playoffs. Amber Patterson scored all three goals for the host Ladybirds, seeded No. 3 in the 3-A East, as they upped their record to 20-1-1.
Southern Nash, the top seed from the 2-A/3-A Big East Conference, advances to Monday’s third-round matchup, also at home, against No. 6 Croatan, which downed No. 11 Fike 3-1 on Thursday. West Johnston, the No. 3 team from the 3-A Quad County Conference, ended its season 13-8.
Emory Gibson and Charlotte Benson each provided an assist for Patterson on her hat trick. Ladybirds head coach Robbie Kennedy credited his defense for limiting West Johnston “to only a few shots,” while praising his back line of Maura Kennedy, McKenzie Kennedy, Valerie Velez, Leslie Alonso and Blair Batchelor, as well as midfielders Layla Austin and Jermia Walker.
Goalkeeper Dahlia Romero recorded the team’s 14th shutout victory.
