The Lady Lions Soccer team had to move their match up with Hickory Christian and over Mazeppa Park due to standing water on the soccer field at home.  The resilient Lions did not let that get in their way as they blanked the Knights 1-0 giving the Lions the second leg of the trifecta over Hickory Christian.

Emma Schopps gave the Lions all they needed with a goal off of a Kylie Haarmann assist with 10 minutes to go in the first half.

Mallory Sherrill had two saves on breakaways, one in each half to preserve the shut out.

The Ladies move to 8-2 on the season and will play at Christ the King on Monday to try an avenge one of their two losses.


The Hickory Christian Knights and the Statesville Christian Lions baseball teams played a game that mirrored a game of “King of the Hill”  for supremacy in the SPAA conference.

When the dust settled it was SCS that remained the last man standing with a 5-4 victory to complete the clean sweep.

The Lions appeared to be cruising as they jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning plating BJ Lomax and Charlie Jacobs on a Casey Zarbynicky fence knocker.

Then the offense, while staying aggressive and hitting the ball around the diamond, remained silent over the next 4 inning.. Unfortunately, the Knights scored 2 unearned runs off Ben Oliver (1-0) in the 3rd. The two runs were the only runs off Oliver, who has not allowed a earned run this season in three games. Oliver also struck out five.

With the scored knotted at 2 in the sixth the Lions took the lead as Zarbynicky (3-3) strode to the plate with 2 outs and roped a single to right center. Then a dropped third strike call on DaDa Sheperd advanced Zarbynicky (3-3) into scoring position where Josh Frye provided a timely single to give the Lions a 3-2 lead heading into the top half of the seventh. Then things got interesting.

Lomax (3-0) came out to the mound to start the seventh and was wounded by friendly fire as the Lions defense allowed two unearned runs and the Knights celebrated their first lead of the night 4-3 and set the stage for Statesville Christian to make one last comeback at their longtime conference foe.

The Lions fate rested on Senior Anthony Ferguson’s shoulders and Ferguson delivered with a two strike single to right.  BJ Lomax tied the game with double, his third hit of the evening.  That was followed by a walk to Jacobs and a two out walk to Zarbynicky loaded the bases in high dramatic fashion.

DaDa Sheperd brought his .381 average to the plate but never had an opportunity to show it off as Knight pitcher Andy Cook, who pitched a fantastic game, threw a wild pitch that brought Lomax home with the deciding run in a 5-4 Lions victory.

Statesville will put their 9-1 record (6-0 in conference) on the line against Davidson Day on Monday at 4:00 at home.
