Andrea Tapia scored two goals, and Hilton Head High girls soccer blanked rival Bluffton 3-0 at home Tuesday.
The Seahawks struck early in the contest, as Kristen Fielding delivered a beauty to the top shelf in the fourth minute. Hilton Head continued to control the play and added another goal in the 35th minute. After a corner kick was delivered to the goalmouth, the ball bounced around to the edge of the box where Tapia sizzled a line drive into the net. The freshman did it again in the 66th minute, booting a deep ball off the Bobcat goalkeeper and in to make it 3-0.
Bluffton looked to find the scoreboard in the dying moments, but an excellent chance was poked just wide of the net as the Seahawks finished off the clean sheet.
Hilton Head (4-4, 3-1) remains at home on Friday to take on Colleton County.
Bluffton (4-3, 3-3) faces crosstown foe May River on Friday.
