Wednesday’s Spring Sports Roundup: Lake Norman Charter upsets Providence soccer

Lake Norman Charter might have scored its biggest girls’ soccer victory of the season Wednesday night, when the Knights logged a 3-2 come-from-behind victory at Providence.

A 2A school, Lake Norman Charter (15-1) fell behind 2-1 in the second half but rallied to beat 4A power Providence (10-4), the SoMeck 7 4A Conference leader.

Kasey Hahn’s goal, on an assist from Brianna Hatch, tied the game at 2-2 in the second half, and the Knights got the winning tally on Kirsten Brady’s penalty kick.

Providence pressured the Lake Norman Charter defense heavily in the second half, but Knights’ goalkeeper Kaela Rosenberger made 15 saves.
