4A-7 district soccer: Hudson nabs another upset, faces Pasco in final

Hudson continued its improbable run through the Class 4A, District 7 tournament, notching its second upset victory.

A day after knocking off third-seeded Mitchell, Hudson, the No. 6 seed, upended regular-season district runnerup Wesley Chapel 2-1 on a late-game winner Thursday from senior Wayne Ewing. The Cobras advance to regionals for the third time in four seasons.

Ewing put Hudson on the scoreboard first with a goal before the first water break. Wesley Chapel's Max Caceres answered soon after, scoring his 20th goal of the season to equalize. The game appeared headed for overtime until Ewing's goal near the full time whistle.

Hudson faces Pasco in tonight's district final. The top-seeded Pirates were 4-1 winners over fourth-seeded Fivay.

Pasco scored twice in the opening half and held a 2-1 advantage at the break.

Jose Flores and Dillon Dunbar each had two goals for Pasco, which has advanced to the district in final seven of the past eight seasons.
