Lourdes wins girls’ soccer district title

 

Special to The Miami Herald

Last season, the District 15-5A final came down to the same two teams. Ferguson defeated Lourdes in a dramatic match that was settled by penalty kicks.

On Thursday night, the Bobcats finally earned their revenge against the Falcons with a convincing 3-0 win at Tropical Park.

Lourdes, undefeated in district play this season en route to its title, will meet Coral Reef in the regional quarterfinals, and Ferguson will face District 16-5A champion Palmetto.

Michelle Figarola, now with 16 goals on the season, scored twice on a pair of second-half headers to put the game away. The first came on a two-on-one break in the 48th minute where Bailey Plummer sent her a perfect feed from the right side. The second goal was scored with under eight minutes remaining off an assist from Cristina Rodriguez Garcia, who rocketed a free kick from just inside midfield into the box for Figarola.

“She’s good out of the air, and she’s connected a couple times this year, but those were two really pretty ones,” Lourdes coach Ray Walden said.

The Bobcats (16-2) scored their first goal in the 36th minute. A corner kick ricocheted right to Sheridan Plummer after a Ferguson defender deflected it in the box. Plummer one-timed it off her right foot to break the scoreless tie.

Lourdes, out of the 4-4-2, extended its shutout streak of district foes. Behind goalkeeper Jenny Herold, the Bobcats have yet to surrender a goal in a district game all season.

Natalie Valderruten, a sophomore for Ferguson (16-5-1) sustained a right knee injury with 18 minutes to play when she overextended while defending a Bobcat near the Lourdes bench.

The game was delayed about five minutes before trainers carried her off the field.

Valderruten told paramedics, who arrived later, she “felt it pop.”

Paramedics transported her to a nearby hospital for what coach Richard Lopez called a probable medial collateral ligament (MCL) tear.
