John Paul II boys soccer opened its season with a 5-1 road win over Beaufort Academy on Monday, handing the Eagles their first loss of the season. 

Jackson Ogden netted a hat trick and Nic Richardson dished out three assists to lead an impressive offensive performance for JPII. Anthony Hill had a goal and an assist, and Austin Floyd added the final tally for the Golden Warriors. 

Sam Rembold and Peter Torinese paced the defense in front of keeper Evan Slusne, who made seven saves, allowing just Gavin Midyette’s second goal of the season. 

JPII (1-0, 1-0) is on the road again Friday at Irmo. BA (3-1, 2-1) hosts Holy Trinity on Thursday.

Powered by a hat trick from Zeke Gonzalez, a brace from Evan Rankin, and goals from Sammy Siler and Patrick Good, the Eagles were in command from the start. 

Freshman keeper Isaac Leslie had his first clean sheet of the season with help from a stingy defense anchored by Jack McDougall, who was named BA’s man of the match. 

A day earlier, BA routed Hilton Head Prep 7-1 at home. After taking a 1-0 lead to halftime, the Eagles erupted for six goals in the second half to claim their first region win of the season. 

Andrew Butterfield scored a hat trick to lead the way, while Grady Lamm added a goal and two assists, and Braydon Dineen, Siler, and Luke Miller each tallied a goal.

Bucs start regular season with back-to-back wins 

Bridges Prep boys soccer kicked off its regular-season slate by knocking off the defending SCISA 1A state champions Thursday, downing Holy Trinity on the road 5-1.

Sophomore Zaire Nelson led an impressive offensive output, scoring two goals while Clay Sanders, Liam Sanders, and Timothy English each added one. Fisher shut down the Mighty Lions in net in the second half and finished the match with six saves. 

The Bucs picked up their second straight victory with a 6-0 shutout of the War Hawks on the road Friday, as English netted a pair of goals and assisted on another, and Michael Legier added a brace to lead the way.
