The South Brunswick girls soccer teamed served notice to its Waccamaw 1A/2A Conference rivals, scoring 11 goals in a league-opening victory against Trask at Boiling Spring Lakes Monday.
The 11-goal outburst followed a 13-0 non-conference win at West Bladen last Wednesday.
South Brunswick is 2-1-1 and 1-0 in the Waccamaw. They had matches at Whiteville Wednesday and at Class 3A No. 1 White Oak on Friday before returning home to play East Bladen next Monday.
Coach Randy Young said the midfield play, led by freshman Kelly Taylor, Katlyn Alston and Jessica Kellett controlled this game against Trask along with the defensive support of Amada Cooper.
Taylor and Alston had two goals each with Jessica Bates, Ariel Brendel, Melissa Rowe, Alex Young, Mary Ann Kincer and Kellet getting one each. Young credited one goal to the team.
In the West Bladen victory, the defense played lights out, according to Young. Ashley Kjome, Jessica Falor, Cooper and Katie Still were the difference.
Young, the two-time Brunswick County Player of the Year, had five goals at West Bladen. Ashley Briggs and Alston each had two with Taylor, Kjome, Jackie Zeron and Bates each getting one.
Goalkeeper Kat Adams had a relatively easy two games. She recorded one save against West Bladen and none against Trask.

The Cougars were to play at Hoggard Tuesday before getting a seven-day break.
