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.
