In a rematch of last year’s SCISA 1A girls’ soccer state championship match, John Paul II beat Beaufort Academy 1-0 on Monday.
Renee Delgado scored the game’s only goal midway through the first half, converting a through-ball from Brianna Riley. It was the only shot the Golden Warriors could get past BA goalie Amelia Huebel, who made seven saves to keep the Eagles in it.
JPII’s defense was outstanding, as goalie Abigail Quinty need to make only two saves to preserve the shutout.
The Golden Warriors (3-1, 2-0) host Hilton Head Prep at 4 p.m. Tuesday. BA (0-3, 0-1) hosts St. Andrew’s at 4 p.m. on March 22.
