Bluffton girls soccer was able to shake off the early rust and take control of its season opener Friday, blanking Berkeley 5-0 on the road.
Adeline Rios scored a pair of goals, and Serena Miller, Anna Parrott, and Anna Andreoletti each added one for the Bobcats, who put 21 shots on goal to the Stags’ two.
The Bobcats built a 3-0 halftime lead and iced the game with dominant defense, as Fiorella Munguia didn’t face a shot on goal in the first half, and Chapelyn Terodemos needed only two saves in the second half to preserve the clean sheet.
“Once the nerves of our first game subsided midway through the first half, our physical advantage took over,” Bobcats coach Brian McCarthy said. “The second half kicked off with much of the same and working on more controlled possessions.”
The Bobcats (1-0) travel to Savannah to face St. Vincent’s Academy on Monday.
