Bladen County Sports
Seven different girls scored goals Friday night as East Bladen’s Lady Eagles defeated West Bladen 9-0 in Four County Conference girls soccer action at West.
 
Senior Lacey Suggs broke the scoring ice with a goal in the 8th minute to put East up 1-0. Three minutes later Suggs sent a pass to junior Justyna Gargala who knocked in the goal for a 2-0 lead.
 
Gargala turned a feed from freshman Ashley Hardin into another goal in the 16th minute. After a scoring lull of 17 minutes, the Lady Eagles struck again in the 33rd minute. Junior Cassidy Davis converted an assist from Gargala into a goal and a 4-0 lead.
 
Three minutes later senior Claire Campbell fired in a goal, and Suggs found the back of the net in the final minute of the half with the goal that stretched the halftime lead to 6-0.
 
Suggs set up the first East Bladen goal of the second half by sending a pass to Hardin that the freshman turned into her first goal of the game.
 
Twenty-four minutes later, junior Erika Morales-Baza cracked the scoring column with the goal that pushed the East lead to 8-0. Freshman Sarah Johnson scored the final East Bladen goal 11 minutes later off of an assist from Suggs.
 
“We gave a lot of girls a lot of playing time tonight,” said East Bladen Coach Jay Raynor. “We played well and moved the ball well. We have a lot of girls beat up with injuries, and it gave us a chance to rest some of them.”
 
Suggs led the Lady Eagle attack with 2 goals, 4 assists and 6 steals. Gargala was right behind her with 2 goals and 3 assists. Hardin added a goal, an assist and 2 steals.
 
Johnson, Davis, Morales-Baza and Campbell tallied one goal each. Junior Lexie Mendell recorded a team-high 7 steals, and junior Anna Grace Long contributed 5 steals. Junior Maddie West finished with 4 steals, and senior Abby Ward added 3 steals.
 
Senior Kathryn Cole recorded the shutout in goal but did not have to make a save in the game.
 
The Lady Eagles improved to 6-1 in the Four County and 13-1 overall.
