The Long County High School soccer teams went 1-1 for the week with both the boys and girls defeating Bryan County on Tuesday, but then falling to Benedictine Military Academy and Saint Vincent’s Academy on Thursday.
On Tuesday, the Lady Tide won big over the Lady Redskins with three players soring multiple goals. Alyssa Anderson had 2, Nakia Hunter added 3 and Katie Estill had 4 goals as the Long County girls beat Bryan County, 9-0.
“I thought we played hard,” Lady Tide coach Brian Todd said. “We got sloppy in some spots, but for the most part it was a good win and a nice night for our seniors to celebrate.”
In the late game, the Blue Tide also picked up the win with Keith Anderson, Paul Cruz, Luis Perez and Beto Nevarez each having one score. While Tito Cruz punched in two as Long County beat the Redskins, 6-1.
“We didn’t play our best game, but a win is a win,” Blue Tide coach Paul Austin said.
Tuesday night was Senior Night for Long County.
On Thursday, things didn’t go nearly as well for Long County. The girls fell to Saint Vincent’s, 6-0, and the boys fell to Benedictine, 3-1.
