Live Blog: Class 2a Girls Soccer State Championship February 11th, 2012
TAMPA — American Heritage-Delray knows how to play in state title games, and on Friday, the Stallions used the knowledge of eight consecutive final appearances against Jacksonville’s Bolles.
Heritage dominated all 80 minutes of play in the Class 2A state final, overpowering the Bulldogs to win by a 5-0 margin giving the school a third consecutive state title on a rain-soaked Corbett Field on the University of South Florida Campus.
“You don’t want to say that any one is more special than the other,” Heritage coach and five-time state title winner Steve Burgess said. “I think this is the most special one for me personally. I’m very proud and very pleased.”
Bolles (18-9-2) only mustered three shots on goal in the game — Heritage (27-2-1) brought an onslaught of 13.
Tatiana Panagos had two goals and an assist in the win, but the star was left wing Yulie Lopez. The Heritage junior didn’t enter the scorebook until the 54th minute, but she was a one-person attack for the Stallions throughout. Lopez ended the game with two goals, but she created a dozen scoring chances for Heritage.
“Fantastic player,” Bolles coach Matt Tracy said of Lopez. “Even in the first half, when it was only 1-0, I still thought she was the dominant player on the pitch. It took a second, and a third, and sometimes even a fourth defender to try to contain her.”
American Heritage wasted little time to score its first goal. Penagos dribbled though the box in the eighth minute and blasted a shot inside the left post to score her 24th goal of the year, unassisted.
Rain started to fall after Penagos’ goal, but it did nothing to bog down the Heritage attack.
Lopez was injured after being drawing a free kick with 15 minutes remaining in the first half. Taken down from behind, Lopez rose to her feet slowly and hobbled away from the play, but she was able to say in the game.
Bolles took advantage of the limited Lopez and created a strong chance in the moments after the foul. That’s when a three-on-three counterattack ended with Bolles’ Naomi O’Leary slamming a shot off the crossbar that deflected out of play.
The play was Bolles’ the best — and last — scoring chance
The opening minutes of the second half brought Heritage’s second goal. Three more followed. The scoring started when Sabrina Chung clinically placed a shot from the right ride of goal past Bolles keeper Carly Stevens. The 47th-minute goal was Chung’s 16th of the season.
It was a also a momentum shift that Bolles couldn’t handle.
“We left halftime believing,” Tracy said. “But the difference between 1-0 and 2-0 is huge. At that point you have to think about how to get two goals back.”
Soon thereafter, Bolles was looking to get back three, four and eventually five goals.
Lopez scored her 51st goal of the season in the 54th minute. Panagos scored her second goal of the game off a corner kick three-and-a-half minutes later, when the ball pinballed on the legs of attackers and defenders. Eventually, Panagos was able to square up the ball and she roofed it from point-blank range.
The remaining 20 minutes of the game were an exhibition in “keep away.” Much of the possession was held by Lopez, who dribbled up, through, around and past Bolles defenders on field-spanning runs. One such run ended in Lopez’ second goal of the game, when she outfoxed six Bolles defenders and the goalie to extend the lead to 5-0.
