The Bull City Cup concludes this Friday with the championship between Riverside and Durham School of the Arts (5-4) at Durham County Stadium at 7 p.m. Southern Durham takes on Kestrel Heights at 5 p.m., also at the stadium.
The other two final games in the eight-team pool play tournament feature N.C. School of Science and Math hosting Voyager Academy on Thursday at 7 p.m. and last year’s champ Northern Durham hosting Carolina Friends on Friday at 5 p.m.
Millbrook (11-2, 4-1) scored two second-half goals to down Heritage on Monday. The Wildcats have a big game coming up Wednesday at Leesville Road (8-5-1, 4-1).
Sanderson (7-2-1, 3-1) and Broughton (9-2-1, 3-1) are also tied for first in the loss column.
Greater Neuse 4A
Wednesday’s game between Knightdale (7-3-3, 4-0-1) and West Johnston (9-2, 4-1) could be for first place in the league. The Knights are coming off a 2-2 tie against rival East Wake while the Wildcats were knocked off by Garner (5-7, 4-1), which also has first place in its sights, on Monday.
Garner and Knightdale played Tuesday night.
There’s a growing logjam atop the conference after East Chapel Hill and Cardinal Gibbons (8-2-3, 3-1-1) tied 1-all on Monday.
Riverside (9-3, 3-1) visits East Chapel Hill (4-2-2, 2-1-1) Wednesday then takes on Jordan (6-5, 5-0) next Monday.
But perhaps the biggest thing to go on in the conference was Saturday, when Hillside topped Southern Durham 3-2. The Hornets (1-5) were 0-12 last year and had not fielded a team in at least a decade.
Southwest Wake 4A
Cary (7-5-2, 4-3-1) got a big 2-1 win over Fuquay-Varina (5-4-2, 4-4) on Monday to put the Imps in fifth in the league heading into the midway point. The Imps have not made the postseason since 2011, but a winning overall record would likely ensure a spot.
Also Monday, Apex Friendship (2-9-1, 1-6) had its first conference win in school history, downing Holly Springs (4-10, 1-6) 2-1. Green Hope (14-7, 7-1) needed a 55-yard goal to get by upset-minded Athens Drive (2-6-2, 0-5-1) 1-0.
