Hickory Heading To State Final

November 17, 2010

Hickory soccer coach Brian Jillings had a message to his team Wednesday night before taking the field at home against Charlotte Catholic in the 3-A West region final. He wanted his team to make it memorable.

“Now we have to do it all over again,” he said.

The Red Tornadoes scored two goals in the first half and hung on the rest of the match to defeat Charlotte Catholic 2-1. Hickory plays at 1 p.m. Saturday at N.C. State against the winner of the 3-A East final between Jacksonville and Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons.

The Tigers went from a struggling team before coach Mike Carey got there in 2008 to sharing the 2009-10 Northwestern 3-A/4-A conference title with St. Stephens and Alexander Central in his second season as coach.

“I think we have a really good chance to be one of the state contenders,” senior Caleb McRorie said. “We started from nothing, and now we are one of the top teams in the state. Hopefully, we can keep going up.”
