2A girls soccer: Tampa Prep starts slowly, then scores three unanswered goals

Class 2A Terps start slowly, then find scoring rhythm

TAMPA — Tampa Prep had plenty of motivation Tuesday against Bradenton St. Stephen's.

Be it taking another step toward returning to the state's final four or erasing a bitter loss to the Falcons a month ago, the Terrapins were ready to take on their rival.

Still, it took the Terrapins a while to get into gear before rallying to down St. Stephen's 3-1 in the Class 2A region semifinals.

"We played bad soccer the first 15 minutes," said Tampa Prep coach Cindy Schofield. "But we settled down. … We were a little anxious."

Tampa Prep's anxiety showed in a lack of defense that allowed Amy Ivan to score 15 minutes in. But moments later, the Terrapins (18-5-4) snapped back into the dominating squad that came in on a five-game winning streak.

A penalty kick goal from Isabel Dalence with 16:45 left in the half tied the score and Tampa Prep took the lead with a little more than a minute remaining on a score by Mackenzie Logan.

Tampa Prep kept attacking in the second half, adding a goal by Caroline Cheek.
