Girls soccer: Seminole routs St. Petersburg for third straight PCAC title

SEMINOLE — Gina Hayduke had two goals and an assist as Seminole routed St. Petersburg 4-0 on Friday to win the Pinellas County Athletic Conference championship for the third consecutive season.

"To win three in a row means a lot," Hayduke said. "This shows we're strong at midseason and strong going into districts."

The teams struggled to finish during the first half as each defense cleared many scoring chances. The Warhawks finally broke through in the 32nd minute as Jordan Turner found Leah Rapuano for the goal.

In the second half, Seminole flexed its muscles.

In the 56th minute, Hayduke scored her first goal of the game on a header off of a corner kick. Seven minutes later, Hayduke broke away from the Green Devils defense to score her second of the game and put the Warhawks up 3-0.

Hayduke found Alex Glunt for Seminole's final goal.

"There were some beautiful goals in the game," Seminole coach Steve Kuplicki said. "It's now time to turn our attention to districts."

Seminole's defense of Alicia Tyler, Sidney Wendel, Tara Belvin and goalkeeper Jackie Aiosa dominated in the back end to keep the Green Devils off the board.

"We wanted to get healthy, play hard and play our game," Kuplicki said. "We worked hard for this, and it's nice to win the PCAC. We have to get ready for (the district tournament) next week."

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.
