Asheboro, girls’ soccer

Flores has been a big part of Asheboro’s offense, and that has helped the Blue Comets in their first two Mid-Piedmont Conference games.

A senior forward and striker, Flores has provided five goals and a team-leading five assists. She has regularly been one of Asheboro’s top threats. This continues a trend because she was second on the team in both goals and assists last year.

Asheboro pulled out a pair of victories in Mid-Piedmont Conference play last week. The Blue Comets topped Oak Grove 3-2 at home as Flores, Jaira Arellano, and Tess Moody scored goals.

In a 2-0 victory at Central Davidson, Itzel Macias scored off a free kick for the first goal. Moody added the second goal. The Blue Comets recorded their first shutout of the season, with goalkeeper Carlisle Dozier making 12 saves.

Asheboro (5-2-4 overall, 2-0 Mid-Piedmont Conference) has this week off.
