Carrollton, Palmetto score big upsets in girls’ soccer

It was wise to expect the unexpected Thursday’s girls’ soccer district playoffs.

Michelle Diaz-Silveira and Drew Wells each scored a goal to lead Carrollton to a 2-0 victory over Gulliver in a District 16-2A semifinal that eliminated the Raiders in the district round for the first time since 1996. Alexis Diaz-Silveira and Sarah Berenguer each had an assist.

Gulliver was coming off a state final four appearance a year ago.

Carrollton advanced to the regionals and will face Westminster Christian at 4 p.m. Friday for the District 16-2A championship.

▪ District 15-5A final — Sophia Bainger scored four minutes into overtime off an assist by Maddie Wise to lead Palmetto to a district championship victory over undefeated Coral Reef.

“It felt like it was a repeat of two years ago, when we beat South Dade when they were undefeated,” said head coach Sam Steele.

Emily Lamas scored two goals and Alexandria Drand had an assist for the Panthers (13-5).

What did Steele, first year head coach, tell his team as they headed into overtime against the Barracudas (19-1-0)?

“The girls didn’t have practice [Wednesday] so they were well rested. I knew they had more energy in them, so I told them to go,” Steele said.

The Panthers will play Coral Gables in the first round of regionals next Thursday.

▪ District 16-3A final — Miami Springs 8, Mourning 0: Freshman Gabi Cimino scored four goals and in the process broke the all-time Miami Springs single season scoring record with 52 goals to lead Springs to its 11th district title in the last 13 years, and fourth in row, with the lopsided win at Traz Powell.

Jasmine Romay scored twice and Katherine Inhoof and Sophia Gomez scored one goal each. Springs (20-2-1) will host Pembroke Pines Charter in a regional quarterfinal at Traz next week.
