2A-9 boys soccer: Tampa Prep outshoots IRC 23-4 in shutout

SPRING HILL — Although the margin of victory didn't show it, Tampa Prep continued to show its domination in the Class 2A, District 9 title game Friday night.

The Terrapins earned their seventh consecutive district crown with a 2-0 win over Indian Rocks Christian, but the final score didn't show the lopsided tilt on the field.

Tampa Prep (15-4-1) possessed the ball for the majority of the contest and outshot the Eagles (15-7) 23-4. Despite attacking early, the Terrapins were continually denied by Indian Rocks keeper Kollin Woodbury (11 saves).

"It was hard finding chances out there," Tampa Prep coach Doug Smith said. "(Woodbury) came up and made some big saves."

The Terrapins were able to string together their two goals in short order before halftime. With 12 minutes left, Anthony Baumann caught a streaking Twain Glaser down the middle. Glaser nailed a line drive to Woodbury's left for the score.

Less than three minutes later, Tampa Prep forward Aaron Burrell scored on a pass from Jake Peterson, beating Woodbury to the right.

The second half somehow stayed scoreless despite the constant barrage the Terrapins laid on Woodbury. It was enough to give Smith his fourth title in four years as coach.
