Bulldogs baseball, soccer teams in Round 3
Murphy's baseball team advanced to the state's Elite 8 with a 11-1, six-inning win over Pine Lake Prep on Tuesday night.
Royce Peterson had two RBI doubles to lead a Bulldog offensive barrage that waited out a rain delay to finish off the third-round win.
Murphy will host Uwharrie Charter Academy in a fourth-round game Friday. A start time has not been announced.
The Lady Bulldogs soccer team was not as fortunate, dropping a third-round playoff game 6-1 at Lincoln Charter. Katelyn Jones finished her fantastic career with the lone Murphy goal.
