TAMPA — Berkeley Prep played 40 minutes Thursday night, but really only needed 37. That was how long it took for the Buccaneers to score eight goals against Frostproof, their Class 3A region quarterfinal opponent. Since the score was 8-0, the game was called by mercy rule at halftime.
"In the tournament you always have to expect to have a tough game," Bucs coach Ken Robert said. "It was a good 20 minutes before we really put it together, but we were able to move the ball around a bit and use our speed advantage up front."
Megan Williams scored what would be the winner in the sixth minute. She also scored the third goal in the 11th minute on a nice chip shot past the keeper. Taylor Batye scored the second goal, and got others involved with some quick passes. Amber Famiglietti scored the fourth goal on a hard low shot, Samantha Newhaller netted the fifth and Taylor Douthitt tallied the sixth and seventh, both in the 34th minute.
Maggie Gianniosis scored the final goal of the match in the 37th minute on another probing run deep into the box before slipping an easy shot in the back of the net.
