4A boys soccer: Jesuit survives tense finish

TAMPA — The knockout punch was there, but Jesuit couldn't deliver the blow.

Whether Jesuit got away from its style of play or just dissipated numerous sure-fire scoring chances, Lakewood Ranch didn't go away.

The Tigers needed a key save and a goal-mouth clearance in the final minute to hold off the Mustangs, advancing with a 3-2 win Thursday in the Class 4A quarterfinals.

"We kept them in the game and got lucky," Jesuit coach Bob Bauman said. "We had many chances early and then we stopped playing."

The Tigers jumped out 2-0 in the first half on goals from Chase Goodwin and Joel Guiterrez and relaxed. The Mustangs came back with some scoring chances at the end of the first half then earned a penalty kick in the 49th minute. Alex Martin scored and cut the lead to a goal.

Goodwin, though, seemed to give Jesuit some breathing room in the 62nd minute when he flicked in a quick header put the Tigers ahead 3-1.

But Lakewood Ranch again found the net when Marco Padilla struck a great left-footed free kick off the post and Leander White knocked in the loose ball.
