Bleckley Splits Soccer Matches with Southeast Bulloch

Bleckley Splits Soccer Matches with Southeast Bulloch

Southeast Bulloch scored off a deflected ball 1:05 into their match Monday with the Lady Royals.  Bleckley's defense kept them scoreless from that point until 14:54 of the second.  Though Ashley Burton's goal at 8:29 cut the deficit to one, BCHS lost 2-1.

Masha Morris and Jacob Waters scored first half goals for the Royals.  SEB got on the board at 13:37 of the second.  An apparent game-tying goal about three minutes later was waived off because the shot taken was supposed to be an inadvertent kick.  Bleckley won 2-1.

The girls will play at Screven County (who has no boys program) Friday at 5:30 p.m. 

Both teams will be in action March 22 in Eastman versus Dodge County.  Match times are 5 pm girls, 7 p.m. boys.
