Coach Chip Ariail’s Bainbridge High School Lady Cats soccer team shutout Albany’s Dougherty High School Lady Trojans 8-0 Thursday at Cenntennial Field, to even their record for the week at 1-1.

On Tuesday, they were downed 10-0 by the Thomas County Central High School Lady Yellow Jackets in a Region 1-AAAA road game.

Leading the way for the Lady Cats on Thursday were midfielders Savannah Cook and Charlton Reynolds, and freshman forward Jennifer Beccera.

The first goal was the result of a pass from Reynolds to Beccera, who dribbled toward the right side and finished with a crossing shot from 10 yards away, in the third minute.

Beccera got her second goal in the 10th minute, when defender Caitlin Cato sent a long lofted pass that was gathered just inside the right of the penalty area and quickly shot to the near post to make it 2-0.

In the 11th minute, Cook stole a ball from a Lady Trojans defender, dribbled into the left side of the penalty area and quickly converted a crossing shot from 16 yards out to increase the lead to 3-0.

Reynolds recorded the first of her two goals in the 15th minute to make it 4-0. She gathered a pass on the right side, dribbled between two defenders and finished a shot from 17 yards out.

Cook scored again from 12 yards out in the 18th minute to make it 5-0. The advantage moved to 6-0 when Reynolds scored in the 28th minute.

Cook completed a three-goal hat trick, when she took a pass from senior Lady Cats sweeper Tiffany Hand, split two defenders and converted a goal to make it 7-0.

Hand scored the Lady Cats’ final goal from 12 yards out in the 58th minute of the second half.
