After Wednesday night’s district semifinals in girls soccer, this year’s regional playoff teams have been determined.
District titles will be decided beginning tonight at Viera High, where Melbourne and the Hawks will play for the trophy. The winner will get a quarterfinal game at home next Wednesday; the runner-up will travel.
In Titusville on Wednesday, Jenna Forry scored a goal in each half as West Shore defeated Cocoa Beach. Desiree Shields helped lead the defense to a 2-0 shutout with five saves.
“It was a good defensive effort,” Coach Tony De La Hoz said. “They didn’t allow many chances.”
He also credited the depth created by the play of the Wildcats’ bench. West Shore improved to 14-4-2, while Cocoa Beach ended at 12-5.
Edgewood, on the strength of a 2-1 overtime win over Satellite, also won a regional spot. The Indians, now 10-4-4, went to penalty kicks with the Scorpions on Wednesday, winning 5-4.
“My favorite thing about this team is their mental makeup,” Coach Andrew Kaltenbach said. “They are remarkably resilient mentally, and they’ve shown that all season. Tonight was another example of it.”
In Class 3A, District 14 games at McLarty Stadium in Rockledge, top seed Merritt Island won its quarterfinal spot with a 2-0 win over Bayside. Kelsey Lewis and Danielle Spivey scored for the Mustangs.
Merritt Island (14-5-2) will play Rockledge, a 1-0 winner over Titusville as Jordan Humbert scored.
