2A-10 girls soccer: Shorecrest gives up late goals in loss to St. Stephen's

ST. PETERSBURG — In what was mainly a defensive battle with Shorecrest, St. Stephen's scored three goals in the final 15 minutes to win the Class 2A, District 10 championship.

In the first half both teams got great goalkeeping and saw lots of blocked shots on their way to a scoreless tie.

However, after sitting out most of the first half injured, St. Stephen's senior forward Amy Ivin came back strong in the second. She fired a shot past Chargers goaltender Tori Diaz to tie the game at 1 with 15 minutes remaining in the game.

Nine and a half minutes later, freshman Hannah Howells scored from in front of the net to break the tie. About three minutes later, Ivin streaked down the right side and toward the front of the goal before passing to a wide-open Howells, who scored to seal the win.

"I would do anything to win, with this being my senior year," Ivin said. "The team's been working hard and we deserved it (the win)."

The Chargers scored in the 55th minute on a pass from eighth-grader Skyler Ellenburg to a wide-open Jenn Casey, who took the pass while streaking down the center of the field and fired a shot past Falcons goaltender Shannon Morrish.

"They are a very fast, physical team, but we persevered knowing we had time left and were rewarded," Falcons coach Bill Unzicker said.
