Glynn Academy opened its boys soccer season with a big win Monday, taking care of Savannah Arts Academy on the road 6-1.
Much of the scoring work was handled by Clay Watkins, who netted five for the Terrors in the contest.
Alex Gonzalez scored the remaining goal and Gray Sasser had two assists.
The Terrors are off to a 1-0 start after the win and will travel to Ware County with the girls team today. The girls game starts at 5 p.m. and the boys at 7 p.m. The boys will also play at 6 p.m. Friday at Glynn County Stadium against Islands.
The Terrors’ JV boys put bested their varsity counterparts in scoring by taking out Savannah Arts 7-0, bringing the team to 2-1 on the season.
Simon Van Boxel scored three times for the JV terrors. Edwin Inseriano also scored three. Peyton Sanchez scored the remaining goal.
The BHS JV squads were also in action Monday.
The boys team tied Ware County 1-1, with the only goal coming from Adiran Cruz.
The Lady JV Pirates were tied 2-2 with Ware County at home Monday, but the second half got away from them in a hard fought contest. Brunswick lost 4-2.
Bessy Ramirez scored one goal for the Lady Pirates off an assist from Daniela Flores. Wendy Rodriguez scored the second goal unassisted.
On Friday, the varsity boys had tight, but successful game at Valdosta. The Pirates went into halftime tied 0-0. That changed when March Grovner, the senior who is weighing college scholarship offers, rebounded a volley from a shot by Fernando Sanchez to go up 1-0.
Valdosta tied the game with about 20 minutes left on a penalty kick, which eventually pushed the game into overtime and penalty kicks to decide the winner.
Brunswick came out on top 2-1 after the penalty kicks thanks to successful attempts by Edgar Noyola, Patrick Caceres, Sanchez and Mason Palmer.
The game winning save in goal came from freshman Zane Rosenbaum.
The JV boys tied in their first game last week against Bradwell Institute 3-3. Cruz, Ramses Hernandez and Marlin Clinch all scored in the game. They then bounced back and beat Wayne County in their second game 2-1.
Brunswick High School’s opening baseball game scheduled Monday against Benedictine in Savannah was canceled due to the possibility of rain and long travel times.
