It was another busy day of Spring Fling on Thursday. Let's take a look at the results from across Williamson County and the Nashville-area.


Montgomery Bell Academy and Christ Presbyterian Academy left it all out on the field on Thursday evening in the Division II-AA boys soccer championship game. MBA prevailed 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw through regulation and overtime.

The Big Red (14-1-1) rescued their season right as it was about to reach the brink, as Richard Aylward headed in the tying goal with under three minutes left in the match.

The Lions (11-2-3) led for nearly 73 minutes before MBA's tying goal. CPA's Jack Harvey scored on an assist from Davis Rody in the fifth minute of action. 

CPA goalkeeper Hunter Walker notched 10 saves and the Lions defense held strong for most of regulation, fitting for a team that had allowed just six goals for the entire season heading into the title match.

MBA's defense, led by centerback Sayan Dalai, gave CPA trouble late. Goalkeeper Graham Smith made three saves in regulation and overtime, then made a huge stop on CPA's first penalty. The save proved to be the difference as it was the only miss for either side in the shootout. 

MBA's program now has two state trophies in seven finals appearances, the first title coming in 2015. It was CPA's sixth appearance, but first since moving up to DII-AA. 


After winning a pair of elimination games, including one over rival Lipscomb Academy on Wednesday, to reach the final stage of the Division II-AA state tournament, CPA (29-13) came up one run short of potentially forcing a winner-take-all final game with Knoxville Catholic.

The Fighting Irish, who went through the bracket unscathed en route to the program's first-ever state title, beat CPA 4-3 thanks to a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the seventh.

The Lions were behind 3-1 after the first inning, but tied the game at 3-3 with a two-run top of the third. Things then remained scoreless until the game-winning run. 

Liberty football signee Bo Burklow drove in a pair of runs, while Easton Dillard plated twice. Dillard also pitched 4.2 innings, striking out two.

Nolensville entered the day needing just one win to reach the Class 4A state championship final, but the Knights were unable to find a victory in two tries. 

Nolensville lost the morning matchup in the winner's bracket with the state's top-ranked team Green Hill 6-0, which sent the Hawks through to the title game unscathed. 

The Knights mustered five hits in the loss, while pitcher Rylan Smith through 11 strikeouts in a complete-game outing.

In the night matchup, Nolensville faced off with Daniel Boone in an elimination game. The Knights led 4-2 through five innings, but a seven-run top of the sixth sent the Trailblazers to the championship game with a 9-5 win.

Smith batted 2-3 at the plate and once again went the distance on the mound, tossing eight strikeouts and allowing six earned runs. Lauren Ryan added two RBI. 

Nolensville finishes the season (41-16), having earned the program's first state tournament appearance.
