East, Carrboro advance in field hockey
For the second time in barely two weeks, East Chapel Hill and Chapel Hill fought to a sudden-death second overtime in field hockey. Amanda Demasi lifted East to 2-1 victory at home off an assist from Sydney Holman to send the Wildcats (17-0-1) into this Friday's state semifinals in Winston-Salem.
Holman scored East's first goal on a breakaway run down the field for an early 1-0 lead. CHHS tied the game in the second half to send it into overtime.
East will be seeking its fifth straight state championship in the upcoming final four at Forsyth Country Day High School. Chapel Hill ended its year at 6-6, with three of the losses coming against East.
Also last week, Katie Minogue scored early in the second half to spark No. 7 seed Carrboro to a 1-0 upset win over No. 2 Charlotte Catholic. Carrboro will advance for the first time in school history into the state semifinals, where the Jaguars will meet Winston-Salem Reynolds.Jaguars done
Danielle Sawyer and Abby Rader won their singles matches in straight sets but that wasn't enough to let Carrboro dodge elimination in the NCHSAA dual-team tennis semifinals Wednesday. Green Central (20-8) won the doubles match they needed to clinch a 5-2 victory. The other two doubles were halted after the team score was decided. Carrboro finished its year at 16-4. W.E. Warnock
