JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Next stop for four area girls soccer teams: the state semifinals.
Creekside, Fletcher Providence and St. Johns Country Day all won their third-round matches on Tuesday night to punch their tickets to the state semifinals on Friday night.
The Knights beat Lake Brantley, 4-2, in Region 1-7A, jumping out to a three-goal lead early in the second half and coasting to the finish.
The Senators edged Fleming Island 2-1 in Region 1-6A, with an overtime goal by Sawyer Reynolds the difference for Fletcher.
Goal! 2-1 @fletchersoccer. Sawyer Reynolds launches the shot from 30 yards plus and finds the net for the Senators in the 88th. What a goal from the central midfielder.— Clayton Freeman (@CFreemanJAX) February 16, 2022
Providence bounced top-seeded Gainesville P.K. Yonge, 3-2, in Region 1-3A. And the Spartans dynasty tallied its third consecutive 8-0 in the playoffs with a romp over Christ’s Church in Region 1-2A.
Stanton’s season ended in Region 1-5A with a 2-0 loss to top-seeded Gulf Breeze.
