West jumped out to a 1-0 lead but North (0-16, 0-14) tied the match in the first half with a goal from Dylan Xiong. The Colts responded with a goal just before halftime to make it 3-1, then scored three goals in the second half.

West Stanly will travel to Trinity High School this Wednesday night to take on the No. 1-seeded Bulldogs, out of the Pac-6 Conference, in the opening round of the state 2A playoffs.
