The Bobcats maintained their impressive unbeaten streak to start the season with a 4-2 win at Class 5A Dutch Fork behind a hat trick from Gwenna Townsend. Emmaline Parrott also added a goal, and Angelina Facenda and Sierra Gies had assists for Bluffton. All four Bobcat goals came in the first half, and Bluffton was able to salt away the win with a conservative second-half strategy with three key players missing and only two subs available.
