Maya Nelson

Watauga sophomore midfielder Maya Nelson redirects the flow of the ball in the first half of the Pioneers’ 4-0 loss to Hickory on March 22 at Jack Groce Stadium.

BOONE — With a strong defensive effort that matched Watauga’s frontline speed and proved disruptive to the Pioneers’ offensive possessions, visiting Hickory pulled away to a decisive, 4-0 girls soccer win on March 22 at Jack Groce Stadium.

Although the Pioneers mounted several attacks, none were productive. The Red Tornadoes’ backline matched the Watauga attackers stride for stride, often either blocking pass attempts or forcing squandered opportunities.

Now 2-1 on the young season, the Pioneers look to rebound on March 24 against Freedom, also at Jack Groce Stadium at 5 p.m.
