Chapin defeated Hilton Head Island High, 15-9, in the first round of the state girls lacrosse playoffs Tuesday night in Chapin.

"The girls played a really tough game," Hilton Head Island coach Kathy Marshall said. "We made some mistakes early on that we were digging out of, and there might have been some nerves early on. But our goalie was outstanding, and our girls never gave up."

Three quick goals at the end of the fourth quarter made the final score look a lot more lopsided than it really was.

Carson Kendrick led the Seahawks (9-5) with four goals, while Kirsten Wartko added two.

Tristyn Sheaffer, Katie Batista and Savannah Reier each had single goals. Shyra Valdez made 19 stops in goal for Hilton Head Island.

"She played out of her mind," Marshall said of Valdez. "I'm really proud of my girls and how hard they worked out there."


Hilton Head Christian Academy 5, Porter-Gaud 1: The Eagles scored four goals after halftime to run away with the win.

Abigail Bensch scored two goals, and Stevie DeSimone and Alyssa Lane scored one goal for Hilton Head Christian (7-2 overall, 6-1 region). Porter-Gaud also gave the Eagles an own goal.

Audrey Bensch and Hannah Reynolds had assists for the Eagles, who host Beaufort Academy at 4 p.m. Friday.

Beaufort High 5, Colleton County 1: Carmen Alvarez and Elise Dean scored two goals each as the Eagles cruised to the win.

Bella Kimbrell added a goal and an assist for Beaufort High (8-6-1 overall, 3-1 Region 8-AAAA). Alvarez and Paulina Dixon also had assists, and goalkeeper Kayley Gilbert made two saves.

The Eagles play at Bluffton on Friday.


Beaufort Academy 6, Bible Baptist 1: Jack Dailey scored a pair of goals to lead the Eagles to the win.

Clay Melville, Nicky Macuch, Reyn Robinson and Walker Floyd had one goal apiece for Beaufort Academy (8-4 overall, 3-1 SCISAA Region 2-AA).


Bluffton 2, Ashley Ridge 1: Courtney Smith pitched a two-hitter, striking out nine while leading the Bobcats to a Region 8-AAAA victory.
