The Richmond Hill girls’ and boys’ soccer teams both opened the Region 3-AAAAA playoffs with wins at home Tuesday night. The girls beat Brunswick 5-3 while the boys defeated Camden County 3-2.

Sabria Marquez scored twice for the girls as Grace Kiser, Ally Denius and Logan Martin had a goal apiece. Jada Carnine, Makayla Nudo and Erin Gillooly each recorded an assist. Bailey King made three saves in goal.

“Overall, Brunswick is a much better team than last season,” Coach Steve Kollman said. “We dominated possession and had close to 40 shots, but their goalkeeper was great. We are honored to be in the state playoffs for the 16th year in a row and now look forward to defending our regional championship.”

The girls’ team is now 10-3-1 and is scheduled to host Camden County at 5:30 p.m. Friday.

On the boys’ side, Nathan Skaggs, Agboade Sobowale and Anthony Yarborough scored for the Wildcats, while Pedro Cabrita recorded an assist. Now 9-4-1, they play Glynn Academy at 7 p.m. Friday in Brunswick.
