The state championship is the second for the Red Devilsâ€™ boy soccer program in seven seasons.
Cardinal Gibbons used its previous state championship experience to knock off Fred T. Foard on Saturday in the 3A boys soccer final at the Dail Soccer Complex.
Behind the play of championship game MVP Cooper Deplantis, the Crusaders cruised to a 5-0 victory against the Tigers.
The Lenoir-Rhyne football team completed its first unbeaten regular season since 1962 on Saturday with a 27-21 victory against Catawba at Moretz Stadium.
It's only the fourth time in school history that the Bears have finished the regular season undefeated (1956, 1960 and 1962) and the first time they've finished 11-0 in the regular season.
Darian Roseboro finished where he left off against Newton-Conover in Lincolntonâ€™s home playoff game against the Red Devils.
After rushing for four touchdowns earlier this season in a 51-8 road victory against Newton-Conover, Roseboro added four more touchdowns in a 48-14 2AA playoff win on Friday in Lincolnton.
Roseboro now has 20 touchdowns in his past four contests.
In a close contest, it was a back up quarterback for R-S Central who proved to be the spoiler for Bandys in its playoff opener at Garry Butler Memorial Stadium on Friday.
After quarterback Tyrese Tate was hurt on a late run, back up Trey Clark entered the game, throwing a 59-yard pass on the next play and scored on 1-yard run to help lift the Hilltoppers to a 29-26 victory over the Trojans.

Born in Canada and having lived across the United States, the journey of Fred T. Foard goalkeeper Rohman Clarke has led him to Saturdayâ€™s 3A state final in boys soccer.

On a senior-laden Newton-Conover boys soccer team, itâ€™s easy to spot the quintet of Francisco Tapia, Xavier Tapia, Jason Mejia, Orlando Gildo and Aldayr Ozuna.
