2A boys soccer: Melbourne Florida Air dispatches Seffner Christian

Missed opportunities were the difference in Seffner Christian's 4-0 loss on the road at Melbourne Florida Air on Thursday night.

Florida Air capitalized on its chances; Seffner Christian didn't.

"The score doesn't depict how close it was," Seffner Christian coach Mark Canterbury said.

Florida Air led just 1-0 at the half and 2-0 with 20 minutes to play.

Not only that, but Seffner Christian had only four fewer shots on goal (10-6) than its opponent, to go along with five corner kicks.

"Normally we capitalize," Canterbury said. "We just didn't tonight."

Seffner Christian finished its first season of winter soccer 16-8.

"We had a great season," Canterbury said. "The boys achieved a lot."
