• Girls’ District 15 final — Ransom 14, Southwest 2: The Ransom girls led 14-0 at one point in the third quarter as the four-time defending state champs ran away with the district title.
• Coral Shores 17, Palmer Trinity 7: Slow starts in both halves doomed the Palmer Trinity Falcons in a loss to the Coral Shores Hurricanes in the District 25 girls’ lacrosse championship game at Bel Aire Park on Wednesday.
The Falcons had trouble stopping the Hurricanes offense, specifically attacker Julia Lozano, who shredded the Palmer Trinity backline for seven goals and added five assists.
The battle on ground was also a lopsided one, with Coral Shores earning a 33-11 groundball edge while suffocating the Falcons on defense. Palmer Trinity finished the game with just 15 shots on goal.
Mater Lakes pitcher Peter Llerena threw a five-inning perfect game Tuesday night in a 13-0 win against Dade Christian. Llerena struck out eight to lead the Bears (15-6-1).
