USCB women win first Sun Conference
The University of South Carolina Beaufort women’s soccer team doesn’t make a practice of soaking coach Ed Heberling with the water bucket after every win, but this one was special. The Sand Sharks earned the first Sun Conference victory in the program’s brief history Sunday, holding off visiting Warner for a 3-2 win at Fin Land Field.
Freshmen Maddie Zak and Jessica Tooley scored first-half goals, and sophomore Alexa Muffley added a goal in the second half for USCB (6-6, 1-2 Sun Conference).
