         BROOKLET - In her varsity debut, freshman Emily Barnard scored four goals to lead Southeast Bulloch to a 10-0 season opening victory over Dodge County in girls soccer Thursday at Fred Shaver Field.
         Kera Olsen, Cole Robertson and Kristin Crawford each scored two goals to lead the Yellow Jackets in the dominating win.
         Olsen put SEB up 1-0 two minutes into the game on a low shot from just inside the penalty area. Barnard then scored two quick goals to make it 3-0.
         Robertson scored her first goal with a strong left-footed shot from just outside the 18-yard box to make it 4-0. Barnard then recorded her third goal and Olsen made it 6-0 at halftime with a goal in the final minute.

         Andrew Kalaani and Ben Sneathen also scored goals to help the Jackets take their season opener.
         Heidler put SEB ahead 1-0 with 19:43 to go in the first half when he outraced the Dodge defense to a through ball and sent a low shot past the Dodge keeper.
         Leading 1-0 at the half, sophomore Kalaani wasted little time making it 2-0 on a short shot 1:34 into the second half.
         About five minutes later, Heidler again outraced the Dodge defense to a through ball and blasted another low shot for his second goal.
