MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.—The Barry Buccaneers continued to take out their frustrations after a disappointing loss last week and hammered the Georgia Southwestern Hurricanes 8-0 in the Little Feet Invitational at Bobcat Field on Friday afternoon.

“It was our second straight strong performance in a row,” head coach Fred Jungemann said after the game. “Hopefully we have put the frustration of Saturday night behind us.

“It was good collective team effort. It was great to see so many people contributing, with six different people assisting on seven goals. Hopefully now we can start to establish some consistency in our play moving forward.”

The Bucs (3-2-0) got goals from Silvia Lugo (her second straight game-winner), Emma Karp, Ziena Cline, two from Joanna Stewart and three from Melissa Madrid. Haley Struthers had two assists, while Katie Lamendola, Allie Llaneras, Lugo, Katrina Molfetta and Sofia Jakobsson added one each.

Mikaela Barboza (2-0-0) worked her second straight clean-slate in goal, but was barely tested, facing only three shots and stopping the only one on goal.

Lugo got the Bucs going again today after scoring first on Monday against Palm Beach Atlantic. Lamendola lofted a cross from the right side and Lugo spun on the defender and ripped a shot past Hurricane keeper Courtney Allison in the 14th minute.

In the 33rd minute, Stewart lifted a high-arcing shot from the right side the drifted over the head of Allison and into the goal. She followed that up 10 minutes later when, on a free kick by Struthers, she slipped through the GSW defense to get a head on the ball and knock it in.

After sitting out the first half, Karp and Madrid made their presence felt in the second half. Karp scored on her second touch of the game, getting tripped up in the box on her first touch and converting the penalty shot on her second just 0:26 seconds into the second half.

Madrid took over from there, scoring her third career hat-trick and first of the season. In the 59th minute, Madrid took a feed from Lugo about 25 yards out and buried a shot past Allison. In the 65th minute, she was in the right place at the right time to head in the rebound after Allison stopped a shot by Molfeta.

In the 79th minute, Karp lofted a shot toward the upper left hand corner that Allison barely got to, but Struthers was there to tip it over to Cline who slotted it home.

Madrid closed out the scoring in the 85th minute when Jakobsson lifted a pass into the penalty area and Madrid flicked a pretty back-heeled shot in for the goal.

The eight goals were the most for the Bucs since a 9-0 win over Eckerd in 2005.

The Bucs will face the host Bobcats on Sunday at 1:30 pm in the final game of the Invitational.
