Beaufort High girls lacrosse earned its first win of the season Monday with a 15-6 rout of visiting Bluffton.
Neveah Wiggins set the tone for the Eagles by controlling the draw all night, and Beaufort took advantage of its possessions. Four Eagles scored a hat trick, as Megan Alvarez and Sophia Pellegrino each collected three goals and two assists, and Annabelle Hooper and Holland Perryman netted three goals apiece.
Kellina Shipes, Abby Baise, and Lillian Carr each added a goal for the Eagles. Pellegrino was quick to the ball all night, scooping nine groundballs, while Baise added seven, and Perryman had six.
Shelby Holstein saved five of the seven shots she faced before giving way to freshman Katy Lamb, who made three saves against seven shots in 12 minutes of action. Thalia Moultrie and Julia Politzer anchored a strong Beaufort defensive effort that repeatedly turned away the Bluffton attack and ran an effective clear.
Beaufort (1-4, 1-2) travels to Hilton Head High to face a strong Seahawks team Thursday.
