NSA soccer headed to state semis

The Nansemond-Suffolk Academy girls’ soccer team is headed back to the state semifinals after a shutout win Wednesday afternoon.

The NSA girls’ soccer team hosted a state quarterfinals matchup with North Cross School Wednesday afternoon and took a 6-0 win. The win once again advances the Lady Saints to the state semifinals Friday afternoon. In their quarterfinals win, five Lady Saints scored a goal, with Camryn King leading the way with two.

Hannah Wolfe led in assists with two, while Mallory Mizelle had eight saves. Mizelle faced down two penalty kicks.

The Lady Saints will quickly shift their focus to Covenant School in their state semifinal matchup. Covenant School is the No. 2 seed in the bracket, one ahead of NSA. If the Lady Saints come out with a victory Friday, they will earn their second consecutive trip to the state championship.

NSA and Covenant School will compete at Glover Park at 6 p.m. Friday. If NSA wins Friday evening, they will play Saturday for a state title, also at Glover Park.
