3A region soccer: Clearwater Central Catholic 2, Mulberry 0

MULBERRY — Thursday's 2-0 defeat of Mulberry in a Class 3A region quarterfinal was familiar territory for Clearwater Central Catholic.

The Marauders beat the Panthers by the same score in the same round a year ago.

With just over six minutes remaining in the first half, CCC's Connor Montgomery launched a cross-field shot on goal. Mulberry keeper Everado Amador expected a redirect, but CCC let the ball continue its path into the net.

In the second half, the majority of play occurred on CCC's side of the field as the Panthers fought for shots that were mostly cleared by the Marauders defense.

"CCC played well. Their defense was very good and I give them credit," Mulberry coach Tim Goehring said. "Overall, I think we controlled the action really well."

In the game's final minute, the CCC defense cleared a Mulberry shot out past midfield to an open Jared Brown, who took the ball down the remainder of the field for an unassisted goal.

"Unfortunately, it ends up the same as last year," Goehring said.

  5. Rays morning after: How exactly did they let that game slip away


    Rays manager Kevin Cash assumed Thursday's game was over when Gary Sanchez rolled a ground ball toward the shortstop spot with the tying run on third and two outs in the ninth. So did closer Alex Colome. As well as second baseman Tim Beckham.
