Bobcats, can’t hang with Seahawks
Beaufort High’s lacrosse teams capped off last week with wins over region rival Bluffton, but Hilton Head High stopped the Eagles’ momentum by sweeping the boys and girls matchups Monday.
The Eagles will be back in action Thursday against James Island with the boys at home and the girls on the road.

Holland Perryman added a goal and three assists, Sophia Pellegrino had two goals and an assist, and Megan Alvarez scored a goal for the Eagles.
