District schedules for girls soccer, Jan. 17-20

District schedules, girls soccer

5A-7 at Bloomingdale

Tuesday: No. 3 Wharton vs. No. 6 Durant, 4; No. 2 Newsome vs. No. 7 Alonso, 6; No. 4 Bloomingdale vs. No. 5 Riverview, 8.

Wednesday: Wharton/Durant winner vs. Newsome/Alonso winner, 5; Plant vs. Bloomingdale/Riverview winner, 7.

Friday: Final, 7.

THE SKINNY: This should be a knock-em-down, drag-it-out district. Plant comes in at the No. 1 seed, but Newsome will be looking for revenge after a 1-0 early-season loss to the Panthers. Don't count out Bloomingdale or Wharton, both talented enough to reach the finals.

4A-8 at Freedom

Tuesday: No. 3 Wiregrass Ranch vs. No. 6 Chamberlain, 6. No. 4 Gaither vs. No. 5 Sickles, 8.

Wednesday: No. 1 Steinbrenner vs. lowest remaining seed, 6. No. 2 Freedom vs. second-lowest remaining seed, 8.

Friday: Final, 7.

THE SKINNY: Defending state champs Steinbrenner should be battle-tested and ready. The Warriors have played a brutal schedule, including three matches each against Bloomingdale and Newsome, a pair against Wharton and single matches against Clearwater Central Catholic and Plant — all nondistrict games. Freedom and Wiregrass Ranch have the best hope at a runnerup finish and entry into the region tournament.

4A-9 at Plant City

Tuesday: No. 6 Tampa Bay Tech vs. No. 3 Hillsborough, 4. No. 2 Plant City vs. No. 7 Armwood, 6. No. 4 Strawberry Crest vs. No. 5 Brandon, 8.

Wednesday: TBT/Hillsborough winner vs. Armwood/Plant City, 6. No. 1 East Bay vs. Brandon/Strawberry Crest winner, 8.

Friday: Final, 7.

THE SKINNY: Plant City stumbled through an uneven year after reaching the postseason for the first time in a decade in 2010-11. Still, this should come down to Plant City and East Bay in the finals. Raiders' forward Ericka Lott's a nifty striker up top.

3A-9 at Lennard

Tuesday: No. 1 Robinson vs. No. 8 Spoto, 6. No. 2 King vs. No. 7 Blake, 8.

Wednesday: No. 4 Leto vs. No. 5 Jefferson, 6. No. 6 Middleton vs. No. 8 Lennard, 8.

Thursday: Robinson/Spoto winner vs. Leto/Jefferson winner, 6. Lennard/Middleton winner vs. Blake/King winner, 8.

Friday: Final, 7.

THE SKINNY: This is Robinson's district to cruise through. The well-balanced Knights are led by Caroline King, Laura Osorio and Charlotte Rothschild, all of whom have nine or more goals on the season.

2A-9 at Tampa Catholic

Tuesday: No. 5 Holy Names vs. No. 4 Tampa Catholic, 6.

Wednesday: No. 3 Berkeley Prep vs. No. 2 St. Petersburg Catholic, 5. No. 1 Clearwater Central Catholic vs. AHN/TC winner, 7.

Thursday: Final, 7.

THE SKINNY: This four-team district is balanced from top to bottom, with CCC a notch above the rest. Each has the team only has to win one match to reach the finals, so this should be an interesting tourney.

1A-7 at various sites

Tuesday: No. 5 Indian Rocks Christian at No. 4 Cambridge Christian, 4. No. 6 Calvary Christian at No. 3 Carrollwood Day, 4. No. 7 Seffner Christian at No. 2 Bishop McLaughlin, 7. No. 8 Academy of the Lakes at No. 1 Tampa Prep, 7.

Thursday (at Tampa Prep): Bishop McLaughlin/Seffner Christian winner vs. Carrollwood Day-Calvary Christian winner, 6. Cambridge Christian/Indian Rocks winner vs. Tampa Prep/Academy at the Lakes winner, 8.

Friday: Final, 7.

THE SKINNY: Tampa Prep breezed through the district slate this year and the tournament should be no different. LSU-bound senior Colby Maffei leads the Terrapins with 36 goals but teammates Alyssa Bryant and Alexandra Daley are also both double-digit scorers.
