District boys soccer
St. Petersburg Catholic 2, Tampa Catholic 1:
The Barons got a first-half goal from Emilo Ycaza and a second-half goal from Manny Carmona to advance to the district final and region quarterfinal. SPC (4-7-6) gave up a goal early in the second half, but Carmona scored seven minutes later.

“We played very hard throughout the game,” Barons coach Will Summer said. “With about 20 minutes left we were able to drop back on defense and they just ran out of gas.”

Osceola 2, Lakewood 1:
The Warriors advanced to the district final and will play at 7 Friday night at Palmetto. Osceola (14-5-5) got a second-half goal from Taylor Abulone and hung on.
