Weather and spring breaks for districts around the state played havoc with many of the spring sports schedules last week. Here’s a look at how local teams did in the games that they managed to get in.


North Moore played the road end of a scheduled home-and-home series with Bartlett-Yancey, dropping an 8-4 decision in their only game of the week. The Mustangs are now 8-2 on the year, 5-2 in the Mid-Carolina Conference. They’re back at it this week with games against Lee County, Dunkirk and Seaforth, all at home.

Pinecrest was able to complete a busy schedule of four games, going 3-1. The Patriots swept a home-and-home with Lee County, 3-2 and 22-4. They dropped a 3-1 game against Gray’s Creek, then beat Wayne Country Day, 9-4.

Pinecrest is now 10-3, 5-1 in the Sandhills Conference. Pinecrest has another tournament game to start the week, then travels to Heritage and Scotland.

Union Pines dropped an 8-1 game against Richmond in their only action of the week. The Vikings are now 4-7, 1-4 in conference with a home-and-home this week against Trinity.


Union Pines split a pair of games this week, beating Greenbrier East, 11-6, then falling to James Madison, 8-7. The Vikings are now 8-3, 5-1 in the Sandhills.

North Moore had the week off for softball action this week to start a 19-day break in the schedule. They’ll be back at it with a trip to Jordan-Matthews on April 9. The Mustangs are 6-3 and in third place in the Mid-Carolina Conference at 6-1.

Pinecrest softball also didn’t play last week, as part of a two-week break in the schedule. The Patriots are 0-9 on the year, 0-6 in the Sandhills Conference. They’ll try to get their first win with a game against Green Hope this week.

Pinecrest won its fourth game in a row and moved above .500 on the year for the first time this season. The Patriots blew out Scotland, 9-0 at home. Jadyn Lamielle scored two goals and had two assists in the win, while seven other Pinecrest players added goals. Pinecrest tries to keep the hot streak rolling with a game at Lee County this week.

Union Pines is riding a two-match winning streak, but the Vikings will need to hope that their momentum continues after a break in the schedule. Union Pines last played on March 20 and sits at 4-2-1 on the year, 1-1 in the Sandhills. They’ll hit the field again this week with home games against Athens Drive and Southern Lee.

North Moore is in the midst of a three-week break in the soccer schedule. The Mustangs haven’t played since March 20. They are still looking for a win on the season, sitting at 0-4-2 overall and 0-2-1 in the Mid-Carolina Conference. North Moore will have to wait at least another week, as they aren’t scheduled to retake the pitch until April 10, at home against Northwood.


The last thing a hot team wants to do is take a break, but that’s what happened to both Pinecrest’s boys’ and girls’ lacrosse. The boys have won five straight to reach 7-2, 3-0 in conference, while the girls are on a seven-game hot streak and sit at 7-1, 3-0. Neither team has played since March 21, however. Both teams will play a home-and-home against Union Pines this week, as well as a home game against Hoggard.

The Union Pines boys played the only lacrosse game in the county this week, losing to Carrboro, 10-1. The Vikings are now 4-3, 3-0 in conference. The girls haven’t played since March 11 and will put their unbeaten 4-0, 2-0 record back on the line this week. Both teams will play a home-and-home with Pinecrest, The boys will also travel to Willow Spring.
