Last Thursday, the Huskies soccer team took the field hoping to take down one of the tougher 1A schools in the region.
Earlier in the season, the Huskies picked up an impressive road win at North Wilkes, and were hoping to complete the season sweep of the Vikings
Instead, North Wilkes would return the favor by grabbing a 5-2 victory on the road against the Huskies.
With the loss, Ashe drops to 7-5 in Mountain Valley Conference play with just four games remaining in the regular season before the North Carolina High School Athletic Association playoffs begin on November 3. The Huskies host Alleghany on Tuesday, which will be Senior Night for the varsity squad. After that, Ashe finishes the season on the road with three games, including facing two of the top teams in the conference. Thursday, Ashe will travel to Wilkes Central. Next week, the Huskies take on an undefeated Forbush team before closing out the season at East Wilkes.
The Lady Huskies volleyball team was also in action on Thursday, this time on the road at Wilkes Central. The JV squad picked up a nice road victory, defeating the Lady Eagles two games to zero. In the varsity match, things did not go the Huskies way. Wilkes Central came away with the victory, winning three games to zero.
With senior night being on Monday, the volleyball team has just one game remaining in the regular season. The team will travel to East Wilkes on Wednesday to take on the Cardinals.
On Thursday, the JV football team continued its winning ways with a big 34-6 win over Alleghany.
So far this season, the JV squad has dropped just two games. They lost a tough opening matchup with Watauga, but bounced back with wins over Mt. Airy and Elkin. After a 32-8 defeat at the hands of Starmount, the JV Huskies have now won three straight games, much like the varsity team has. Ashe beat West Wilkes 14-0 and also took down North Wilkes before this win over Alleghany.
Coming up for the JV football team will be Parent’s Night this Thursday at 7 p.m. The Huskies will be taking on Wilkes Central, the only team that last year’s JV squad did not beat.
