Prep Soccer: West loses first-round playoff game

Staff report
West Rowan ended its season with a 4-1 loss at Marvin Ridge on Wednesday in the first round of the 3A playoffs.
The Falcons entered halftime with a 1-1 tie and trailed 2-1 going into the final five minutes against an undefeated Marvin Ridge team.
The Mavericks, 18-0-1 and ranked fifth in the 3A coaches poll, scored in the first five minutes. West countered at the 20-minute mark when Nicole Lucente assisted Katie Russell on a game-tying goal, and that score held up into the second half.
Marvin Ridge scored 10 minutes into the second half and added a pair of goals in the final five minutes.
West Rowan played in one of the toughest 3A conferences in the state in the NPC, and coach Nick Brown said Marvin Ridge was on par with teams like Mooresville.
“They were a very good team,” Brown said. “Solid, really aggressive, won lots of balls in the air. They got some outside mids that are just phenomenal.”
In his first season as head coach, Brown led West to an 11-9 record and a playoff appearance. He’ll try to improve on those achievements without six seniors who played their final games last night ó Russell, Lacy Heglar, Allie Hester, Taylor James, Christina Wood and Katie Cox.
“I had a great time this year; it was a great season,” Brown said. “I thought the girls worked really hard. From the first game against North Iredell to now, we improved tremendously as a team. I’m so proud of what these girls accomplished this year.”
