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.

    NEW YORK — A treasure, possibly worth half a million dollars, could lie behind a granite slab at the base of the Bloomingdale's flagship store in Manhattan in New York City, just a few feet from a window displaying designer handbags: a baseball signed by Babe Ruth.

    According to reports from 1930, this cornerstone of Bloomingdale's flagship store in New York City could have a baseball signed by Babe Ruth and other items entombed with instructions not to open for 200 years. The Ruth ball, if there and in good condition, could be worth a record $500,000. [ New York Times]
