Enloe Eeeks by Lady Caps

The Enloe Eagles came to the Broughton home courts and barely eeked out a victory over the Lady Caps 5-4. The showdown of the match was the #2 doubles court. Sophomore Katie Burroughs and Freshman Trevlyn Roberts overcame a 2-6 deficit to win 9-7! Simply awesome! Roberts and Junior Meg Hardesty fought hard but lost in tiebreakers in their respective #2 and #4 singles matches while Senior Elizabeth Bell won the #5 court in a tiebreaker. The Lady Caps travel to Leesville tomorrow to avenge the earlier season loss at home. Come out and support the Lady Caps tennis team!

#2 Caps Lose a Heart Breaker on Alumni Night

It was a bittersweet night at Broughton Stadium on Monday as the Caps (7-1, 1-1) welcomed back former alumni, but lost 0-1 on a free kick with 2 minutes to play.






The first half was a real battle between Broughton and Enloe with both teams having several good chances.  Senior Clay Oxford played an amazing game in the net and stopped several 1v1 breakaways with no margin for error.  The Caps did have one goal taken off the board for an off-sides on Cesar Gonzalez who had tapped home a cross from Freshman Omar Stallings. (It was the correct call)  Just before halftime, Junior Lucas Beeson was denied a header goal by the Enloe GK (and man of the match) and the score was 0-0 at halftime.







The second half was completely dominated by the Caps in every area except the most important one - the scoreboard.  Juniors John White and Andrew Rossetti had (and created) several chances that were denied by the Enloe GK and Senior Erik Johnsen had one that just missed off the left post.  With overtime looming, the Enloe #11 rifled a free kick home from the top of the box and we left with a L. 

There are no moral victories in the Cap-7 this year, so we need to get 6 points from the next two games this week.  Tonight we travel to Leesville Road, last year's champs, to start a new winning streak.

Go Caps!!

JV Caps Soccer vs Enloe Ends in Push

The JV soccer team scored early in the first half to establish a lead over Enloe and took that advantage into halftime. Enloe came out in the second period and immediately matched the Caps. Broughton found the net to go up 2-1. With under 2 minutes remaining Enloe managed a breakaway and tied the game.

See highlights from the game: JV Soccer vs Enloe



Caps Football Splits with Rams

The JV football team travelled to Rolesville for the Thursday Night Lights with a 21-2 win. Their defense didn't allow  the Rams to get into the end zone. A safety was the only opportunity for Rolesville to get on the scoreboard.

The varsity team hosted the Rams Friday night with a 34-6 loss. Dalton Smith kicked two field goals to provide all of the Caps scoring.

This week is a bye for Broughton. The following week they will take on Southeast Raleigh for the first Cap-7 games of the season.

#2 Caps Soccer Moves to 7-0 with Shutout of SE Raleigh

In a game that features no shots on target for the opposition, the #2 Broughton Capitals (7-0, 1-0) started out the CAP-7 season strong with a 5-0 victory over SE Raleigh.







It took the Caps a few minutes to score as Senior Lex Varani and Juniors John White, Lucas Beeson and Andrew Rossetti each put shots on goal or hit the post in the first 15-20 minutes.  Finally, the deadlock was broken by Lucas Beeson who headed home a great corner kick from Senior Jack Ashby.  That was shortly followed by Freshman Omar Stallings' rocket to the top corner to make it 2-0.  Senior Ahmed Magoub then scored the next two, one off a rebound and the other from an assist by Scott Rostick and we were 4-0 at halftime.

The second half saw lots of fight from SE Raleigh and lots of playing time for many of the Caps.  Just like in the first half, the post was hit several times (Rossetti, Cesar Gonzalez) and headers were cleared off the line (Erik Johnsen).  Finally, with 5 minutes to go - John White got a deserved goal and the score ended 5-0.

Any time you shut out the other team - props must be sent to GK's: Clay Oxford, Hector Martinez and Sam Vlahoplus and the Defense: Lex Varani, Ewan Reynolds, Duncan Coffey, Ivey O'Brien, Logan Hunter, Dante Oliva, Laurits Peterson and Franklin Noyola.

Next week is the first real test for the Caps as we face:

Monday: H to Enloe (who is undefeated)
Wednesday: A to Leesville Road (last year's defending champs)
Thursday: H to Cary (advanced to third round of playoffs)

Time to go to work.  #skocaps

#2 Caps Soccer Dominates Middle Creek 9-0

In a game that was all Broughton from the opening whistle, the Caps (6-0, 0-0) used a six goal second half to mercy rule Middle Creek 9-0.






The Caps struck early and often as Senior Captain Jack Ashby curled in a beautiful free kick from just outside the 18 to make it 1-0.  After numerous chances, Senior Stephen Holloman crossed the ball into the box and Senior Erik Johnsen headed it home to make it 2-0.  Then, before the break, Junior Scott Rostick played a corner kick into the box which Junior John White one-timed it into the corner to make it 3-0 at halftime.

The second half, unbelievably, was better than the first and Jack Ashby got his second goal from a cross from Junior Andrew Rossetti.  Then, Andrew got his goal as he stole the pass from Middle Creek and beat the GK with his left foot to make it 5-0.  Then, Junior Captain Lucas Beeson took his turn with a great run and shot that was tapped home by Tzo to make it 6-0 and then Lucas got his goal to make it 7-0. The game ended with Senior Ahmed Magoub scoring off a great pass from Sophomore Laurits Sorensen and then Stephen Holloman scoring to close the game early at 9-0.




We are now ready for the Cap7 season opener this Wednesday (weather permitting) against SE Raleigh.  Please check the @broughtonsoccer twitter feed for any schedule changes.

#2 Caps Defeat Athens Drive 3-2 to Stay Undefeated

In a game that saw the #2 Caps (5-0, 0-0) start fast, struggle in the middle but finish strong, the Caps used a 2-0 second half to defeat Athens Drive 3-2 at home.






Broughton scored 5 minutes into the game as Freshman Omar Stallings headed home a great header from a Sophomore Jack Eubank cross to make it 1-0.  Unfortunately, from that point until the end of the first half, Athens Drive dominated the Caps and scored 2 goals to make the halftime score 1-2.

Coach Brannan's pep talk at halftime got the boys' attention and we took it to Athens Drive from the whistle to start the second period.  The constant pressure paid off as Junior Andrew Rossetti scored his team leading 6th goal off a cross from Omar to make 2-2 60 minutes into the game.  Then, with 10 minutes left, Omar played a nice ball again through the middle and Senior Cesar Gonzalez finished with a right footed shot into the top corner to cap the comeback and give us the W.



Starting this week, the Caps play at least 2 games a week for the rest of the season and begin conference play this week against SE Raleigh on Wednesday.  Before that, we play Middle Creek - at Middle Creek on Monday hoping to start 6-0 for the first time in a few years.

#3 Caps Win 3-2 for Comeback Victory at Wakefield

In a game where the #3 Caps (4-0, 0-0) found themselves down 0-2 after 20 minutes, the boys fought back and won in thrilling fashion 3-2 to stay undefeated for the season.



Broughton started the game on the back foot, and Wakefield capitalized with two well earned goals: the first a header directly off a long throw in (sound familiar) and then a header off a cross.

However, the team showed no panic and began to wear down the Wolverines and equalized with 8 minutes left on a Senior Erik Johnsen goal from Junior Ivey O'Brien cross to make the halftime score 1-2.

The second half was total domination for the Caps and there wasn't even a direct shot on goal for Wakefield.  Juniors Andrew Rossetti and Lucas Beeson had multiple chances either saved by the GK, or just miss the post.  Finally, the pressure paid off as Andrew Rossetti crossed the ball into Erik Johnsen - who headed it off the post and into the path of Ivey O'Brien for the tying score.

After many more shots by Andrew, Lucas and Freshman Omar Stallings, the Caps finally took the lead for good on a PK by Lucas Beeson.

A special shout out is in order for the Defense - who with the exception of two headers, shut Wakefield down: Seniors: Ewan Reynolds, Lex Varani, Juniors: Dante Oliva, Logan Hunter and Sophmore Jack Eubank.

The sign of a good team is to get a result when you don't play your best - so there is still much hope for the season.  Next Game: Tuesday, September 5th at home versus Athens Drive.  Have a great Labor Day Weekend and #skocaps!!

#8 Caps Defeat Apex 2-0 for 6 Point First Week

In a game that was tied at halftime, the Caps (2-0, 0-0) used tough defense, strong goalkeeping and timely goal in the second half to topple Apex 2-0.


Apex came out strong and dictated a lit of the early play in the first half.  Senior Captain Clay Oxford made several good saves to keep the Cougars off the board.  Chances started coming at the end of the half, as Senior Captain Jack Ashby played some great corner kicks into the box that Junior Bryce Meredith and Senior Ahmed Mahgoub headed at the Apex GK.

The second half was controlled by Broughton and for the second game in a row - Juniors Andrew Rossetti and Lucas Broughton (Captain) combined for a long throw-in goal to put the Caps up 1-0.  That lead was doubled 20 minutes later as Andrew Rossetti took a pass from Senior Cesar Gonzalez and fired it past the Apex keep to make the score 2-0 and close the game out. (Thanks to Marc Ridel Creative for the picture below)



Broughton travels to Rolesville next Monday for their only game of the week.  Looking forward to going to 3-0 and getting ready for former conference opponent Wakefield on the 30th.  #skocaps

#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.
