JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The road to the state final four continues for 11 area boys and girls soccer teams.

Six area girls teams moved on with wins in their second-round matches and stand one win away from a berth in the state semifinals. Bartram Trail, Fleming Island, Ponte Vedra, Bishop Kenny, Bolles and St. Johns Country Day all advanced. Four of those teams won by one-goal margins.

Five of those programs will host regional final matches on Tuesday night with berths in the state semifinals on the line. Bartram Trail (1-7A), Fleming Island (1-6A), Ponte Vedra (1-5A), Bishop Kenny (1-4A) and Bolles (1-3A) will host those matches.
