Stevie Guin's four goals were more than enough to lead Terrebonne past Thibodaux, 6-1, in a District 7-1 opener for both teams.
Guin, who is coming off an injury last season, seemed right at home despite playing in another opponent's stadium.
Terrebonne coach Ray LeCompte said Guin and the rest of his team definitely looked like they benefitted from playing a tough non-district schedule. Terrebonne entered Friday's match sporting a 1-6 record.
"I tell you what, Thibodaux came out aggressive and really made me nervous in the first half," Lecompte said. "Thibodaux has a good team that will be a force in our district, but luckily we were able to play solid defensively which helped lead to chances for our offense. As for Stevie, she looked great out there and was a leader for us on the field all night."
After Terrebonne's Joelie Cantrelle scored the first goal early on to make it 1-0, Thibodaux responded in the 16th minute on a Courtney Hepola goal. Nia Walker doled out the assist on the play to tie things up a 1-1.
The remainder of the half belonged to Guin, who notched a hat trick with the final goal coming late in the half to give Terrebonne (2-6, 1-0 in district) a 4-1 edge.
While Thibodaux was able to match Terrebonne's intensity in the first half, Thibodaux coach Katie Bilello said her squad needs to work on maintaining its focus for a full 80 minutes.
"I feel good about where we are headed as a team, but we are sort of lacking some confidence right now and not finishing like I would like us too," Bilello said.
Terrebonne added its final two goals in the 46thand 54th minutes on a Madison Cruse netter and Guin shot to give her team the five-goal win.
Terrebonne had more than 20 shots on goal compared to eight for Thibodaux (3-2-1, 0-1 in district).
