Beaufort Academy boys soccer rallied from an early two-goal deficit, then held off a late push from reigning SCISA 1A champion Holy Trinity for a thrilling 4-3 win to open the season Friday.
The Mighty Lions pounced early, taking a 2-0 lead just 10 minutes into the game, but the Eagles answered swiftly, scoring four goals before halftime to take command.
Holy Trinity pulled one back in the second half, but BA was able to deny the Mighty Lions the equalizer and hang on for a season-opening win.
Brayden Dineen, Miles Spratling, Evan Rankin and Gavin Midyette scored goals for the Eagles, but Zeke Gonzalez was named the team’s man of the match for anchoring the defense and making key passes from his right wingback position.
BA (1-0) hosts Hilton Head Prep on Tuesday. Holy Trinity (0-1) hosts Patrick Henry on Tuesday.
