HS GSOC: Bobcats run opening win streak to 6

Bluffton girls soccer has continued its red-hot start to the season in spite of numerous key injuries, beginning with a hard-fought 3-1 win over rival May River on Friday and rolling into blowout wins over Wade Hampton and Colleton County to start the week.

The Bobcats started the season with five starters injured, including three who were lost for the full season, but they’re perfect through six games, and they were in top form over the past three, grinding out a 3-1 win over the Sharks in the rain before blasting the Red Devils 12-1 at home Monday and blanking the Cougars 11-0 on the road Tuesday.

Gwenna Townsend, Angelina Facenda, and Leyla Dubs all found the back of the net against the Sharks, while Chapelyn Terodemos needed just four saves thanks to a stout defensive effort from the Bobcats.

Bluffton found its rhythm on offense to start the week, as Michaelann Gies scored five goals and Townsend tallied a goal and three assists to lead the charge against Wade Hampton. Rachel Martinez had a goal and two assists, while Facenda and Fiorella Munguia each collected a goal and an assist. Dubs, Anna Andreoletti, and Serena Miller also scored, and Ellory Pruitt and Sierra Gies added assists.

The Bobcats kept the good vibes rolling Tuesday in Walterboro, as Micaelann Gies recorded her second straight hat trick, Townsend added two goals and an assist, and Facenda scored a goal and assisted on three more. Anna Parrott had a goal and two assists, and Dubs, Andreoletti, Sierra Gies and Martinez also scored.

The Bobcats (6-0, 4-0) step out of region play for a tough home test against Class 5A Dutch Fork at 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
