Bolles, St. Johns Country Day advance to state championship in girls' soccer


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Two of our local girls’ soccer teams are one win away from bringing a state championship back home to the First Coast. 

Bolles entered Friday’s semifinal match against Trinity Prep averaging seven goals per game in their three previous playoff games. The number seven must be a lucky number because that’s exactly how many goals the Bulldogs scored against the Saints. 

In the 13th minute Cami Dade put Bolles on the board with the first goal of the game. Just six minutes later Avery Patterson scored on a header off of a corner kick to give Bolles the early 2-0 lead. 

By halftime the Bulldogs had tallied four goals in route to their 7-0 win. Bolles will face Oxbridge Academy in the Class 2A State Championship on Wednesday Feb. 21 in Deland.
