South Dade, Cypress Bay girls face tough week

South Dade and Cypress Bay’s girls’ soccer teams each enter the final week of the regular season with unblemished records.

The two still have very tough roads ahead of their respective clubs if they are to make it to state this season in Class 5A.

Even surviving this week perfect won’t be easy.

South Dade (15-0) is hoping to add three more wins in this week’s Greater Miami Athletic Conference tournament, which is set to begin Tuesday at sites around Miami-Dade County.

South Dade plays Miami Beach in their quarterfinal matchTuesday at home at 3:30 p.m. The Bucs are vying for their second GMAC title in the past three seasons.

Should South Dade prevail this week, it is hoping to fare better beyond the conference title than it did in 2013 when it lost the following week in the district semifinal round. The Bucs have their best record in school history this late in the season, and enter next week’s District 16-5A playoffs as the top-seed after dominating one of South Florida’s toughest districts.

The other GMAC quarterfinals have American playing Ferguson (10-5-1) at 4 p.m. in the first game of a doubleheader at Traz Powell Stadium that will be followed at 6 p.m. by Miami Springs (14-1-1) taking on Dr. Krop. Coral Gables (15-3) plays MAST Academy (9-5-2) at Tropical Park at 3:30 p.m.

If South Dade beats Miami Beach, it would play the winner of the Miami Springs-Krop in the semifinals at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Milander Park. The American-Ferguson winner plays the winner of MAST-Coral Gables at 5 p.m. in the other semifinal.

The championship round is set for Friday at 7 p.m. at Milander.

PERFECT STORM

Cypress Bay (15-0), the top-ranked team in The Miami Herald’s South Florida Top 10, opened some eyes with a recent 1-0 victory over reigning Class 5A state champion and nationally-ranked St. Thomas Aquinas. The Raiders had not allowed a goal prior to that match.

The Lightning hope to remain perfect with two more tough tests Tuesday at Archbishop McCarthy (16-2-2) and Thursday at rival West Broward before entering next week’s District 13-5A playoffs as the top seed.
