Girls soccer: Mitchell 2, Hudson 0

TRINITY — Freshman forward Amanda Hayes scored two second-half goals, propelling Mitchell past rival Hudson 2-0 Tuesday night.

Mitchell came out aggressively in the first half, earning 10 shots on goal, but Hudson goalkeeper Brittney Wilkins made eight saves, helping to hold the game scoreless at the half.

In the 20th minute, Mitchell's Baylor Cherry sent a cross to Kailin Torress, who headed the ball into the hands of Wilkins. Cherry orchestrated a breakaway and sent another cross, this time to Danielle Gottwik, but Wilkins was there again to stop the header.

Mitchell outshot Hudson 24-7 in the match.

"We had our chances and we controlled the speed of play," Mitchell coach Karl Kukec said. "Our defense was doing fine and the only thing that was left was to score."

The Mustangs never took their foot off of the gas pedal, continuing its relentless assault on the Cobras.

In the 42nd minute, Cherry bent a corner kick that deflected off of a Mitchell player, allowing Hayes to blast a header in the back of the net.

Hayes was at it again in the 68th minute, receiving a cross from Shannon Estes-Larkin, and from there she kicked the ball past Wilkins.

"We played really hard," Hayes said. "It was intense, and there were a lot of fouls, but we worked hard."

Desperate to get back in the game, Hudson couldn't capitalize on key opportunities.

Jessica Straquadine squandered a potential breakaway in the 66th minute, and Logan McGee's free kick in the 77th minute went right into the hands of Mitchell goalkeeper Erica Disbrow.

Disbrow finished with seven saves.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.
