Taelyr Daugherty scored two of Battery Creek girls soccer’s three goals and Natalie Cruz-Woodley added a third as the Dolphins defeated Region 8-3A foe Hanahan 3-0 on Thursday at Whale Branch.
Daugherty’s first goal put Creek on the board just 10 minutes into the game, but it was the only score of the half as the Dolphins took a 1-0 lead to the break.
The freshman forward added her second goal late in the second half to put the Dolphins up 2-0 and Cruz-Woodley sent a direct free kick into the back of the net in stoppage time.
Battery Creek outshot the Hawks 13-5, as a strong Dolphins defense limited the Hawks’ chances and Anna Moore recorded the shutout with five saves.
The Dolphins return to the pitch Friday, traveling to Wade Hampton at 6:30 p.m.
