Orange midfielder/goalkeeper Wyatt Jones on RCS win

Updated: March 14, 2020

Orange senior midfielder Wyatt Jones played possibly his final game as a Panther on Friday night. Jones scored two goals in Orange’s 15-0 win over Roxboro Community School in Person County. The win puts Orange at 6-0, tying the best start in school history. Jones is the first Orange lacrosse player to sign with a Division I school. In December, Jones signed with Mercer. The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has suspended the spring sports season until April 6, leading to uncertainty whether Orange’s season will continue. The Panthers handled its game with the Bulldogs as senior night. After Jones scored two goals, he started playing as a long-stick midfielder. Then he shifted to goalkeeper, for the first time in his career, in the fourth quarter. Jones was also the starting quarterback for the Orange football team the past two years.
