Lake Norman Charter’s girls soccer team knows the pain of losing in the state final.
They were determined to not feel that way again.
After losing 6-1 to First Flight in 2018 and 4-3 on penalty kicks to Carrboro in 2019, Lake Norman Charter left no doubt in this year’s final. The Knights scored four first half goals in an easy 5-0 win over Carrboro.
Lake Norman Christian finished the season at 19-0. Carrboro, which had won four of the past five state titles, ended its season at 13-2-1.
Saturday, the Knights jumped on Carrboro quickly, getting four goals from Asha Means and Eliza Rich in the first 20 minutes.
With 31:14 to play, Means scored her third goal of the game. Means is a North Carolina recruit.
