See how North Henderson’s athletic teams performed this past week in a weekly roundup.

Soccer

Monday: East Henderson 3, North Henderson 0

North Henderson hosted East on Monday night for a county-rival matchup.

On a cold and crisp night, East Henderson found success early by scoring two goals in the first half, which gave the visiting team a 2-0 lead going into halftime.

North couldn’t keep with a fast Eagle team throughout the second half and the Knights dropped the conference match, 3-0.

Wednesday: North Henderson 1, Tuscola 3

North traveled to Tuscola on Wednesday for their second conference game of the week.

After North gave up two goals in the first ten minutes, the Knights held their own and displayed impressive play throughout the game.

Although, North would only score one goal, which was not enough for the win and the Mountaineers won, 3-1.

In their last home game of the year, the Lady Knights picked up a conference win against Pisgah (25-15, 25-14, 25-17). North’s three seniors Teegan Bullock, Caroline Marsh and Camryn Nicholson all had big nights to end their luxurious careers. For a full story on the game, click here
