Wilson Christian rebounded from its only varsity girls soccer loss this spring with a 3-0 shutout of visiting Raleigh New Life Storm homeschool team Monday.

Senior Anna Grace Abrams had a goal and an assist for the Lady Chargers, who improved to 8-1. Wilson Christian, the North Carolina Christian School Association 2-A defending champion, lost to DASH Homeschool on Friday.

After taking a pass from Skylar Pone, Abrams drilled in a shot over the New Life goalkeeper’s head from 25 yards in the 26th minute. The 1-0 lead stood until three minutes into the second half when senior Jenna Hunter redirected a deflection from a Lady Chargers corner kick into the net.

Wilson Christian padded its lead in the 52nd minute when junior Sydney Strother took a pass from Abrams and punched it past the Storm keeper. The Lady Chargers crafted an 8-6 advantage in shots on goal while WCA keeper Kendall Harris made three saves.

Lady Chargers head coach Don Samson credited sophomore center midfielder Lydia Renfrow for leading Wilson Christian’s defensive effort in the shutout, the Lady Chargers’ third of the season.

“She did a ton of work that really slowed their push down,” Samson said.

The Lady Chargers return to NCCSA 2-A East Region play Thursday at Friendship Christian in Raleigh.
