Sister act takes care of scoring for East Lake

East Lake played its way into Friday's championship match of the Hurricane Watch Tournament with a 3-1 win over Lakewood Tuesday.

East Lake's Nalley sisters - Brittany and Alicia - played a part in all three goals. Brittany Nalley got the Eagles' (12-1) first two strikes, with Alicia assisting on the second. Alicia then completed the sister hat trick, putting East Lake up 3-0 in the 57th minute. Lakewood (7-2-1) avoided the shutout when Kelli Haemmelmann found the net with four minutes to play.

Seminole (6-3-4) and St. Petersburg (4-4-1) played to a scoreless draw in the night's other match. If Palm Harbor University, a 4-1 winner Monday over the Green Devils, beats or ties Seminole when the teams meet tonight at 6, the Hurricanes advance to the championship Friday against East Lake. The Warhawks need a win over PHU to advance to the title match.

A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING: Gibbs (1-6-2) has just one win this season, but the Gladiators' Brittany McDonald has done her part. McDonald leads the team with eight goals, despite not playing full time. McDonald, who has played goalkeeper out of necessity in four matches, scored twice last week against Northeast. In goal against Lakewood Nov. 29, McDonald made 22 saves.

"Brit's a team player," Gibbs coach Brent Winner said. "She's willing to play whatever position we need her in at any given time."

UNDER SIEGE: Pinellas Park goalkeeper Alyssa Doheny has averaged a whopping 27 shots against her this season, but none more painful than one Monday against Clearwater. Doheny was hit in the right hand about 20 minutes into the match and was down several minutes. Doheny played the final 60 minutes despite finding out afterward she had broken a finger.

MORE PAIN: Tarpon Springs will be without Brianna Coorey for the rest of the season after the junior broke her leg last week against Largo. Coorey was tied for the team lead in goals (six) with Jen Hunter.

WELCOME BACK: Clearwater Central Catholic's Ali Halverson, who committed to Tennessee but hasn't played this season while rehabbing a torn ACL, was cleared to play and coach Tom Typrowicz expects her back in the lineup by Christmas.
