4A-10 girls soccer: Osceola, Dixie Hollins fall in semis

Class 4A, District 10

Lakewood Ranch 1, Osceola 0

Osceola fell victim to a late goal in a 1-0 loss at Lakewood Ranch.

The Mustangs pushed the game winner into the net with three minutes remaining off a corner kick.

Warriors goalkeeper Brittney Bennett collided with a Lakewood Ranch attacker on the play but no foul was called, according to Osceola coach Larry Ferrol.

Up until that point, the Warriors kept a clean sheet against the top-seeded Mustangs.

"We played tough defense and my goalkeeper Brittney Bennett was outstanding tonight," Ferrol said. "They had more scoring chances, but she was there to cancel them."

Palmetto 3, Dixie Hollins 1

No. 6 seed Dixie Hollins couldn't pull the upset two days in a row in a 3-1 road loss to second-seeded Palmetto.

On Thursday, the Rebels upended No. 3 seed Lakewood to advance to the district semifinals.
