Hudson's Jonathon Mendez capped an improbable run for the Cobras through the district tournament with two goals in the championship game in a stunning 2-0 victory over Pasco. Hudson entered the tournament as the No. 6 seed but beat the top three teams in 4A-7 (Mitchell, Wesley Chapel and Pasco) to win the district title. In the final, playing a top-seeded Pasco team it had lost to 6-0 and 7-0 during the regular season, Hudson got goals from Mendez in the 5th and 48th minutes to shock the Pirates.
