WHITEVILLE – Whiteville Central outlasted Elizabethtown 3-2 on Thursday in Waccamaw Middle School Conference boys soccer action.
Elizabethtown battled back from deficits of 1-0 and 2-1, before Central pulled out the victory. Alex Hidalgo and Marco Ventura fired in goals for the Cougars, and teammates Chace Butler and Jamie Delgado contributed one assist each.
The Cougars played shorthanded due to injuries to goalkeeper Fernando Rebollar, Aiden Williams and Tevin McClean. “Big injury to Tevin in the first half changed the game,” said Elizabethtown Coach Jay Raynor. “The boys fought hard but didn’t get the result. They showed a lot of fight.”
Elizabethtown, now 1-1, will play West Columbus at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Bladen County Park.Share:
