Class 2A, District 9

2A-9 soccer final: Bishop McLaughlin overpowered by Tampa Prep

TAMPA — Tampa Prep captured its fourth straight district title, defeating Bishop McLaughlin 7-0 Friday night.

The Terrapins were led by senior forward Paige Goodwin, who tallied four goals. The UCF-bound Goodwin played exceptionally well after missing the majority of the regular season while recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament sustained in June.

"After being out for eight months, I am just so relieved to be back playing well and helping my team," Goodwin said.

Playing strong for Bishop McLaughlin was goalie Chrysta Gard, totaling 11 saves.

Tampa Prep jumped on the Hurricanes 12 minutes into the game, scoring three goals in three minutes. Goodwin netted the first two goals on a header and a shot that bounced off the post before going in. Colby Maffei scored the final goal of the half by finishing a cross in front of the net.

"Paige has great fire," Tampa Prep coach Pam Smith said. "She's a leader on this team, and her hard work off the field has really shown on the field."

The second half featured more of the same, as Goodwin added two more goals and Taylor Richardson and Evvie Walker scored.

"Because of injuries this was the first time we've had our entire starting team on the field together this season," Smith said. "From here on we have got to take it one game at a time, finish our shots and take advantage of our opportunities."
