Soccer Players Earn Performance Listings In NCHSAA Record Book

       Several additions have been made to the North Carolina High School Athletic Association record book in men’s soccer, with players earning performance listings in a couple of different categories.

       Landon Goodman of Salisbury ended his prep career as the Hornets won the NCHSAA state 2-A championship over Washington, and he closed his senior season with a whopping 66 goals on the year.  That ties him for third all-time for goals in a single season.

       Goodman wound up with 113 goals for his career, which is now in the top 30 all-time.

       His Hornet teammate Joshua Lynch earned a performance listing with 38 assists for the 2015 season, the eighth-best single season achievement in that category.

       Nick Hughes of Franklin Academy was the Most Valuable Player in the NCHSAA state 1-A championship as he led his team to a 3-1 triumph over Community School of Davidson.

       Hughes had three goals in the championship game, with his hat trick giving him a total of 55 on the season.  That puts Hughes 13th on the all-time single season list. 

       The state record for goals in a single season is 92, established by Surry Central’s Michael Richardson in 2002 after he had set the state record the year before with 87.
