County all-star soccer: Pinellas sweeps Hillsborough

CLEARWATER — The senior season for Clearwater Central Catholic's Lindsey Cooper and Torey Camporini didn't exactly end the way they had envisioned after the nationally ranked Marauders suffered an upset in the district playoffs.

But Cooper and Camporini, who was named her team's MVP, made up for some of that disappointment by scoring two of the three goals in the shootout period of the 18th annual Senior Soccer Challenge on Saturday at Countryside High. The Pinellas girls All-Stars beat the Hillsborough stars 2-1, Pinellas' third win in a row.

The game went to a shootout after regulation time ended in a 1-1 tie. Hillsborough High's Megan Nelson, who earned her team's MVP honors, gave Hillsborough a 1-0 lead in the first half, but Shorecrest's Jenn Casey scored in the second half to tie things up.

In the boys game, St. Petersburg's Warren Simmons scored on a penalty kick midway through the first half after the Green Devils midfielder was taken down in the box, and the Pinellas stars beat the Hillsborough team 1-0, its fourth consecutive win in the series.

Countryside defender Andrew Hitt was named Pinellas MVP, and Hillsborough High midfielder Daniel Barboto was the Hillsborough stars MVP.
