Richmond Hill got back on the winning track Tuesday with a 4-2 win over visiting Savannah Christian in a boys’ non-region soccer match.
The Wildcats got two goals from Nathan Skaggs and one each from Chad Castle and Michael Hoffman in the victory, which improved RHHS to 2-
1 overall. Hoffman had two assists for the Wildcats, while James Rymer and Joel Trotter each added an assist. Goalkeeper Brandon Olson finished with four saves for RHHS, which got off to a 2-0 start with wins over rivals Benedictine and Glynn Academy before Friday’s 1-
0 loss to Statesboro
Tuesday’s win was big for the Wildcats, RHHS coach Robbie Flanders said.
“We played a good game, controlling the pace and possession most of the game,” he said. “We had a few really good shots from outside the box that hit the post. We just need to be great at the little things, play more consistently, and need to create more scoring opportunities. “
Richmond Hill’s girls’ team topped Statesboro 7-
0 on Friday behind a hat trick from Erin Gillooly. Ally Denius, Samantha Howley, Ruthie Riley, Sabria Marquez and Ally Denius also scored goals for the Lady Wildcats. Hailey Rey and Petrino each had one assist, and keeper Bailey King had one save for RHHS, which improved to 2-1-2 overall.
“It was a nice way to start region play,” RHHS coach Steve Koillman said. “Hopefully, we will get healthy and build on this success.”
