BHS girls take two; boys split on lax field

By Justin Jarrett


Education comes first, but as soon as the test is over, it’s time to play. Or so was the case for Beaufort High girls lacrosse standouts Annabelle Hooper and Emily Bennett, who missed the first half of Saturday’s home game against Irmo to take the ACT, then made their way to the field for the second half and helped the Eagles rally for a 14-11 win at Lady’s Island Middle School.

It was one of two non-region wins in the past week for the Eagles, who also held off South Effingham 17-14 on the road Monday for their third win in four games.

On Saturday, it was tied at halftime when Hooper and Bennett traded their scantrons for lacrosse sticks and gave Beaufort the boost it needed in the second half. Sophia Pellegrino led the way with four goals and two assists.

It was Megan Alvarez who took the mantle on Monday, scoring six goals as the Eagles again pulled away after being tied at halftime. Kelina Shipes added four goals, Pellegrino had a hat trick and an assist, and Lillian Carr added a pair of goals. Neveah Wiggins dominated the draw all night and scored a goal

The Eagles (4-10) will host Ashley Hall on Thursday for senior night.

Beaufort’s boys continued their resurgent season with an 11-0 rout at Aiken on Saturday, but they couldn’t keep the momentum going at home Monday, falling 15-6 to Savannah Country Day. Individual statistics were not reported.

The Eagles improved to 5-8 after going winless a year ago, and they’ll look to add to that win total when they try to finish a season sweep of James Island at home Thursday.
