The Georges Valley girls soccer team is off to its typically strong start yet again in 2010 and the Buccaneers appear to be well on their way to another successful campaign.

That fact was reaffirmed Tuesday afternoon in Thomaston, when the Buccaneers came up big yet again and pulled out a shutout victory over visiting Winthrop.

The Bucs were the only Midcoast soccer squad to taste victory Tuesday, with the Vinalhaven boys and girls squads falling to Winthrop and the Searsport girls dropping its home contest to Deer Isle-Stonington.

The Islesboro coed team was scheduled to be in action Tuesday, but the game was postponed due to inclement weather. No makeup date has been set.

Information from the Vinalhaven contests with Richmond will be added to this story when it becomes available.
