#8 Men's Soccer Wins Home Opener 9-3

It was a great way to open the season for the #8 ranked Broughton Capitals as they used goals from five different players to defeat Rolesville 9-3.

Broughton started quickly and took a 1-0 lead on a header from Junior Lucas Beeson directly off a long throw in into the box by Junior Andrew Rossetti.  After Rolesville tied it up 2 minutes later, Broughton ran off four goals before halftime by Lucas Beeson (2), Senior Erik Johnsen, Junior John White and Freshman Omar Stallings.  Assists to Senior Cesar Gonzalez, Juniors Duncan Coffey & Bryce Meredith along with Erik Johnsen.

The second half started much like the first with Erik Johnsen nabbing his second goal of the night (assist Senior Jack Ashby) right away, but Rolesville got one back on a PK that Sam Vhlapolous got his hand on.

After that Andrew Rossetti got his first goal (assist John White) and second goal (assist Junior Ivey O'Brien) of the season while Lucas Beeson completed his hat trick with a goal off a nice corner kick by Sophomore Jack Eubank.

The Caps play again on Wednesday against Apex at 4:30P for JV and 6:00P for Varsity.  Please come out and support the team.

Football Teams See Purple and Gold

The Broughton JV and Varsity Football teams attended the Holly Springs Jamboree on Wednesday night. It was their first opportunity to line up and face players not on their own team. Holly Springs has the same colors and Broughton so seeing purple and gold on both sides of the ball looked like practice. 

The scrimmages were an opportunity to run plays unlike during a typical game. Each team alternated 10 offensive possessions during a 40 minute running clock. 

The Caps will attend another Jamboree on Saturday, August 12 at Southeast Raleigh High School. Though they don't face The Bulldogs, it will give the teams a chance to visit their home field. The varsity team will return on September 29 to play Southeast Raleigh as part of this season's new Cap-7 conference.

Football Summer Practice Kickoff

Monday, July 31 is the first day of Summer Training for the JV and Varsity football teams. Yet, this isn’t the first day this summer they have used to prepare for the 2017 season. For most of June and July they have been conducting strength and conditioning sessions in the weight room and skills development on the field. The team attended a football camp at Mount Olive College, 7-on-7 scrimmages at NC State, and special teams instruction at East Carolina University.

Eight players have been elected by their peers to head up a new Leadership Council. These players will each lead a group of players that will work together and compete against the other groups. 

This season’s team is called Team 89 - marking the years since Broughton was established in 1929. Their slogan is Let’s Get It!

The varsity team plays two home games before the first day of school. 
August 18 vs. Apex
August 25 vs. Athens Drive

The JV season starts on August 24th at Athens Drive.

Head Coach Chris Dawson will be entering his second season.
