Bluffton girls soccer picked up a big region victory with a hard-fought 4-1 win over visiting Beaufort High on Tuesday.
Cassandra Gray scored a pair of goals and assisted on another, and Katie Shrewsbury scored once and added two assists to lead the Bobcats. Gwenna Townsend also added a goal, and Adeline Rios dished out an assist for Bluffton.
“We had 21 shots on goal, but it’s difficult getting one by Quinn Wilson,” Bluffton coach Brian McCarthy said. “She made several unimaginable saves and is probably one of the best instinctual goalkeepers I’ve seen at the high level, male or female, in a long time.”
Bluffton’s Fiorella Munguia made seven saves to help preserve the lead, with Beaufort’s lone goal coming from Anna Brown, who finished off a corner from Carter Kolb.
“Overall, a very competitive, hard-fought, and cordial game by both teams,” McCarthy said. “Not only are the facilities and field great, but we were greeted and treated with excellent hospitality by Coach Wilson and all associated with the program and school.”
The Bobcats (8-4, 7-4) travel to Lucy Beckham on Thursday for their regular-season finale, while the Eagles (5-7-1, 4-6) close out the regular season at May River on Thursday.
