Gainesville — The Gainesville girls soccer team got off to a strong start at the Big Red  Soccer Classic this week, winning each of its first two matches in convincing fashion.

With the wins, Gainesville improved to 7-3 on the season.

In the tournament opener against the Lady Yellow Jackets, senior forward Whytneigh Duffie led the way for the Lady Leopards, scoring three goals. Senior midfielder Estephanie Martin and sophomore forward Reagan Woodlock also added to the scoring with one goal each.

Gainesville stayed hot in the tournament’s second game against the Lady Coyotes. GHS jumped out to a 5-0 halftime lead and kept the AHS offense at bay from start to finish in the 6-1 victory.
