Butler girls ready for Ardrey Kell's soccer challenge

Wednesday night at 7, Butler will try to reach the N.C. 4A soccer championship for the first time.

Standing in the way is Ardrey Kell, ranked No. 2 in the state, and looking for a second straight finals berth.

Ardrey Kell, the home team Wednesday, is unbeaten and has stopped Butler 3-1 and 1-0 this season.

Butler is led by Sarah Gilmore (11 goals) and Victoria Fichman (10). Amanda Welsh has seven goals. The Bulldogs haven’t given up a goal in the postseason, sparked by stellar defensive play from senior Jordan Brisley, sophomore Anna Parr, senior Julia Lucas and junior Kristine Culicerto. Goalie Carly Rives has 14 shutouts and only 11 goals scored against her.

Golf is a sport in which players using many types of clubs including woods, irons, and putter(s), attempt to hit balls into each hole on a golf course in the lowest possible number of strokes. Golf is one of the few ball games that does not use a standardized playing area; rather the game is played on golf "courses", each one of which has a unique design and typically consists of either 9 or 18 holes.Golf holidays in Costa del Sol Golf is defined in the Rules of Golf as "playing a ball with a club from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules".

Don't you know you can't mention Marvin Ridge in the Observer? They are not a CMS school.
