THE DEFENSIVE PLAY of Serena Hayes helped the Camden High girls’ soccer team post three shutouts in North Myrtle Beach over the weekend.

Having won their first two games by shutout and playing to a scoreless draw in their third contest, the Camden High girls’ soccer team fell to AAAA state power Bluffton, 3-0, to finish second in the Michael Nash Memorial Soccer Tournament hosted by North Myrtle Beach High School last weekend.
This was the second time in as many seasons that the Lady Bulldogs took runner-up honors in the six-team event.
Camden's first match of the tournament was played in a downpour last Friday afternoon but the rains did not slow down the Lady Bulldogs who blanked Loris 7-0.
Freshman Brooke Galdeen scored the first two goals of the season for Stephen Sutusky’s troops on assists from seniors Kayla Wallace and Savannah Locke.
CHS never looked back after that as Breanna Barnes and Jordan Woody also scored two goals in the contest. Wallace added one goal from her striker’s post to go with her game-leading two assists. Seniors Woody and Locke combined on the shutout in goal.
In the nightcap, the Camden defense pitched their second straight shutout in defeating 4A entry Conway, 5-0 to improve to 2-0 on the season and in the tourney.
“Our defense played lights out throughout the tournament,” Sutusky said. “ Jordan (Woody) and Savannah (Locke) both played well in goal and Sarah Anne Semple handled things well in the field defensively.”
The CHS coach said Semple, along with, Serena Hayes, Margeaux Laschanzky and Maggie Wehunt led the defensive charge.
In the win over Conway, Wallace’s three assists led the offensive surge as freshman midfielder Shan Woody scored twice. Owens Morgan, Riley Shelburne and Katie White each added goals to close out the scoring.
Saturday morning saw the Bulldogs battle to a scoreless draw against Socastee.
“Socastee is a talented team and program. I think we passed the first test of the season as we played right with them for 80 minutes,” Sutusky said of the match with the Lady Braves.
“Defensively, we were on our heels, but Jordan (Woody) and Sarah Anne (Semple) stepped up a number of times" said Sutusky.
With the tie, Camden advanced to the finals as a result of their two previous shutouts.
Facing Bluffton, the Lady Bulldogs could not get the offense going in a 3-0 setback.
“We kind of ran out of gas in that final game, but I'm really satisfied with our play over the weekend,” said Sutusky. For their efforts Semple and Woody were named to the all-tournament team. Sutusky said that any number of his players could have been selected for that honor.
“Any one of our defenders could have earned that distinction,” he said. “And honestly, without the play of Galdeen, Wallace, and Shan Woody we would not have won Friday’s games.”
