If Shorecrest is going to make it back to the Class 2A state final, it will have to do it on the road.

The Chargers, the defending Class 2A, District 11 champions, lost in Thursday’s final 1-0 to host Sarasota Out-of-Door.

The Thunder scored the winning run in the top of the seventh inning off Jordan Lindsay, who pitched the final three innings in relief of starter Marc Brakeman.

Brakeman pitched a shutout through the first four innings and gave up three hits. Lindsay allowed two hits in relief, both doubles.
Shorecrest struggled on offense, with just four total hits, and never had multiple hits in any inning.

In Tuesday’s region quarterfinals, the Chargers will go on the road to Fort Myers Evangelical Christian, an 8-7 winner over Community School of Naples in Class 2A, District 12.
