(January 19, 2015) — Stephenville won its fifth straight with its third straight shutout Monday evening, defeating 5A Granbury 2-0.

The Honeybees silenced Granbury’s attack, just as they have seemingly everyone’s in allowing just one goal over the course of nine games and two scrimmages. Their only loss came on penalty kicks to break a scoreless tie, and in the only game they allowed a goal, they scored late to break the tie and win 2-1.

Granbury did have a couple scoring chances, but anything that did get to the goal was stopped by Taylor Woody.

“We actually faced a little pressure, mostly because of our own doing,” said head coach Casey Weil. “But Taylor made a couple saves when she needed to and we were solid other than that.”

Up front, Bayleigh Chaviers put the Honeybees on top for good midway through the first half. Chaviers, a junior who has pledged with Miami (Fla.), was an all-tournament selection when Stephnville won the Knights of Columbus Challenge of Champions last weekend.

Skylar Chipman scored with 15 minutes remaining, and with the Bees playing their trademark shutout defense, it was all but over.

After six games in four days, the Honeybees are idle the rest of the week. They visit Lampasas – who they defeated 3-0 the final in the Challenge of Champions – on Tuesday, January 27.
