A Brittany Return

WILSON -- After an elongated stint away from the prestigious event, the Bunn Ladycats made a return journey to Gillette Park last season to participate in the annual Brittany Girls Soccer Showcase.

Bunn was back in action at The Brittany last Saturday, but the Ladycats were paired up with a tough opponent -- the Washington Pam Pack.

BHS fell behind early, but didn’t give up. Instead, the Ladycats made a second-half comeback but eventually came up short by a 5-2 margin.

The Brittany features some of the top girls soccer programs in the area -- and other parts of the state.

For the surging Bunn program, it’s an honor to earn an invite to The Brittany, which accentuates sportsmanship and playing as hard as you can -- as opposed to the final numbers on the scoreboard.

BHS got off to a slow start and trailed 3-0 at the break, and the Pam Pack tacked on another marker early in the second half to take what appeared to be an insurmountable four-goal advantage.

But the Ladycats roared back with quick goals from Haley Jones and Yesenia Ascencio. Liz Reyes, who entered the game in net at halftime for BHS, was also stern, but Washington was able to add an insurance goal that deflated the Ladycats’ spirits.

As part of a Brittany tradition, all clubs that play at the same time meet near the concession stand to be introduced.

One performer from each team is presented with a game ball emblazoned with the Number 18 -- the same number Brittany Willis wore during her high school career at Wilson Hunt.

The award is given for the best sportsmanship during the match and is chosen by the referees.

Bunn’s winner was freshman defender Carlye Wegenast.

The Wildcats will carry a 5-6 overall record into Thursday’s home matchup against Northern Carolina Conference foe South Granville.
