2A girls soccer: Clearwater Central Catholic thrashes Lakeland McKeel

LAKELAND — Clearwater Central Catholic scored seven goals in the second half of a 9-1 victory over McKeel Academy in a Class 3A region quarterfinal at Tenoroc High on Thursday night.

The Marauders (13-3-5) did not waste any time as Lindsey Cooper scored the first of her two goals just two minutes in as she converted a crossing pass from the right side.

Leading scorer Kaitlin Parker scored the first of her three goals past a confused Wildcats defense.

The Wildcats (10-4-5) took advantage of their first shot on goal to cut the lead in half with 16 minutes left in the first half as leading scorer Brooklynne Atwell headed in a goal in front of the net.

"It was a tale of two halves," Wildcats coach Jacob Sweeney said. "For whatever reason our defense fell apart in the second half."

CCC scored two goals in a span of 20 seconds early in the second half. The Marauders would have scored more if not for key saves made by Wildcats goalie Johnna Keene.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    Lightning Strikes

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.

    BALTIMORE — RHP Alex Cobb pitched well enough to lead the Rays to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Friday.
