West Johnston gets its revenge against GNRC co-champion Garner

After sharing the Greater Neuse River 4A Conference title they had dominated in recent years, West Johnston relished the third try the Wildcats were given against rival Garner in the second round of the 4A girls soccer playoffs Saturday afternoon. They were hoping to play this game, said West coach Reid Byrd, whose team matched Garners 12-1-1 record but went 0-1-1 against their second round hosts on Saturday. And it wasnt Knightdale they wanted to play. They just wanted a chance to play this game. And after a penalty kick gave Garner a 1-0 lead less than two minutes into the match, the Wildcats made every opportunity count earning a 3-1 victory and a third round date with Panther Creek this week.
