WILSON - Under normal circumstances, a matchup at The Brittany Girls Soccer Showcase usually involves a meeting between two faraway clubs that aren’t very familiar with each other.

That certainly wasn’t the case for the Franklinton Lady Rams during their appearance at the prestigious event last Saturday morning.

Franklinton’s opponent was one that the Lady Rams knew all about, as Jacksonville Northside stopped Coach Isaac Welker’s club last year in the Class 2-A Girls Soccer State Playoffs.

The rematch came last Saturday, though both clubs were shorthanded as Franklinton keeper Anna Moss was unavailable due to a Junior Olympic volleyball tournament commitment.

Moss is also utilized on several kicks off fouls for FHS, and she has been known to move up to forward late in matches.

Without Moss, the Monarchs were able to deliver a trio of goals and edge the Lady Rams by a 3-2 margin at Gillette Park in Wilson.

Moss’ absence also affected FHS’ defensive rotation as standout rearguard Allison Burkett was forced to compete at the uncustomary keeper’s position.

FHS was ahead early 1-0 before the Monarchs delivered three consecutive goals. Hannah Rayman scored late in the second half off a free kick to bring the LadyRams to within one goal.

Sydney Rednour delivered Franklinton’s first goal in the opening half of action.

With the close setback, Franklinton dropped to 4-4-2 overall on the campaign. The Lady Rams are also 2-1-1 in the Northern Carolina Conference, with the lone loss coming against perennial powerhouse Roanoke Rapids.

Hannah Styers, a freshman, was saluted from FHS with The Brittany Willis Sportsmanship Award Game Ball.

Franklinton’s tie in the NCC came one day before The Brittany as the Lady Rams were able to equalize Durham School of Arts by a 3-3 score.

After the road tie, it wasn’t long before Franklinton’s players were meeting up again to make the journey to Wilson for a contest that started at 9:30 a.m.

Earlier in the week, FHS had lost to Franklin Academy (2-0) and defeated Louisburg (9-0).

Versus Louisburg, Franklinton junior forward Rayman had yet another huge outing as she delivered five goals.

It was the second time this season that Rayman had struck for a five-spot, with the other coming during a 9-0 triumph against conference foe Southern Vance High School.
