North Broward in region semifinals


Joshua Creighton had two goals and an assist to lead the North Broward Prep boys’ soccer team to a 3-0 win over University School in the Region 4-2A quarterfinals on Wednesday.

The host Eagles advance to face the winner of the Cardinal Gibbons-Delray American Heritage game.

“We were ready to play tonight,’’ North Broward coach Diego Cardona said. “I think we had a very good possession game. We possessed the ball for most of the time, and we scored on our opportunities.’’

The first opportunity for the Eagles (19-6) came when Felipe Druck scored in the 13th minute from the left side. He ran a give-and-go with Creighton in the middle, and Creighton returned it to Druck to set him up to shake one defender before launching his shot into the net.

“I think from the beginning of the season [Cardona] instilled in us we are a family,’’ Creighton said. “We have to know each other on the field, off the field, everywhere.”

Creighton scored North Broward’s second goal two minutes before halftime off the rebound of a shot that ricocheted off Suns goalkeeper Alejandro Friedman.

Creighton found the net again early in the second half on a header in the box off a Leo Castillo feed from deep in the right corner.

If the Eagles get Delray American Heritage in the regional semifinals, it sets up a rematch of the District 13-2A final, which North Broward took from the Stallions after losing the teams’ two regular-season meetings.

University (7-8-1), which made a regional-final exit last year after a state championship in 2011, ends its 2013 campaign after entering the regional playoffs as District 14-2A runner-up.



To cap a prolific third quarter in the BCAA Big 8 boys basketball championships quarterfinals against St. Thomas Aquinas, Pines Charter 6-7 swingman Justin Satchell tossed in a high arcing three-pointer at the buzzer and casually walked back to the Jaguars’ bench.

Satchell went off on St. Thomas Aquinas to the tune of 16 points in the pivotal quarter, highlighted by three three-pointers and a tomahawk dunk to help the Source Hoops Class 6A No. 6 Jaguars (17-2) turn a 30-28 halftime lead into a 77-56 runaway victory at Fort Lauderdale High School.

“I saw the basket well in the third quarter,’’ said Satchell, who finished with 21 points. “I just kept shooting. Eventually we got our teammates involved, and it went from there. We are a run-and-gun team. That is all we do. Our fastbreak offense is crazy.”

Class 7A No. 3 St. Thomas Aquinas (17-4) dug itself out of a 15-5 hole with a 12-0 run in the second quarter sparked by 6-7 reserve forward Sidney Umude (15 points) but ultimately had no answer for the Jaguars’ explosive three-wing attack led by Satchell, 6-3 Prince Ali (23 points, four assists) and 6-5 Hannif Cheatham (12 points, eight assists, three steals).

Wade Meade added 13 points for the Jaguars who advance to its first Big 8 semifinal on Friday at 6:30 p.m., when they face the Blanche Ely-Western quarterfinal winner.

Umude was easily the Raiders’ best offensive option on a night they struggled to match the Jaguars’ firepower. Steve Haney added 10 points and Matt Maturah had eight points for Aquinas.

Satchell and Ali sparked the decisive 20-6 run at the start the third quarter that sealed the Jaguars’ second win over the Raiders this season.
