Blue Hill—Coming off a stellar 3-0 start to the season, the Eagles’ varsity girls soccer team kept the pressure on against Dexter at home on September 16 with a 1-0 win.

Junior Morgan Dauk scored 12 minutes into the first period with an assist from Lindsay Nevin while the Dexter goalkeeper seemed to lose sight of the ball in the scramble at the net.

Her confusion was justified as the Eagles had turned back the Dexter offense that was dominant in the opening minutes of the game. The first half was fought mostly at the Dexter net, although GSA goalkeeper sophomore Bess MacArthur made seven first-half saves on nine shots towards the Eagles’ win.

Both teams failed to score in the second.

The Eagles are 4-0, a record matched only by Penquis Valley, but lag in the early rankings because of the low number of games played compared to other Class C teams. That may change, as they play three matches this week, including a homecoming game against Bucksport on Saturday at 11 a.m.
