West Sweeps NCCA Soccer Games

            GREENSBORO—Tresor Mbuyu of Charlotte’s Garinger High School scored two goals and added an assist to lead the West All-Stars to a convincing 4-1 triumph over the East in the North Carolina Coaches Association men’s soccer all-star game at MacPherson Stadium.

            It gave the West a sweep of the soccer all-star games, as the West scored a 2-1 victory in the women’s game.

            The West also got goals from Hector Gutierrez of Asheville A.C. Reynolds and Seth Jones of Gastonia Hunter Huss.

            The East goal was scored on a header by Alex DeOliveira of East Carteret.

            In the women’s game, the West rallied for a 2-1 victory, led by game Most Valuable Player Megan McCallister of Asheville A.C. Reynolds, who will be going to Charlotte to play collegiately.  She scored one of the two West goals, although the winners were outshot 19-9.

            After a scoreless first half, the East women had taken a 1-0 lead on a tally by Swansboro’s Kimberly Moore in the game’s 57th minute.  But the West tied it on McCallister’s goal three minutes later, off an assist from Emily Cowie of Cornelius Hough, and then struck for the tiebreaker four minutes after that with Cowie tallied on a header.
