Ferguson girls open GMAC with rout

Coming off its first GMAC championship a year ago, the Ferguson girls’ soccer team began the defense of its title in impressive fashion Tuesday afternoon.

The Falcons scored twice in the first six minutes to set an early tone and dominated the rest of the way in routing American 8-0 in a quarterfinal matchup at Traz Powell Stadium. Ferguson will take on Coral Gables in the first of two semifinal games at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Milander Stadium.

Miami Springs edged Krop 3-2 on a late tiebreaking goal in the doubleheader nightcap at Traz and will take on undefeated South Dade in the other semifinal at 7 p.m.

Ferguson (12-5-1) was definitely in a sharing mood as eight players scored solo goals.

Natalie Valderutten started things off with a goal just four minutes into the contest and, less than 90 minutes later, Natalie Muñoz finished things off with a score in the game’s 68th minute to end the contest on the eight-goal mercy rule.

Michelle Moreno, Nicole Bovo, Mariana Ramirez and Joanna Lopez scored goals in the first half as Ferguson built a 5-0 halftime lead before Sophia Somardich, Adanna Edwards and Muñoz wrapped things up with scores in the second half.

“We learned a couple of hard lessons early on this season and that was that we were hanging back and playing more of a tactical and possession game,” Ferguson coach Richard Lopez said. “So at this point, coming off a strong finish to our season, I told them we need to push our pace in order to attack, push everybody up and make the game ours, and that’s what we did out there [Tuesday]. Once we scored early, we just kept on scoring.”

Miami Springs (16-2-1) was pushed to the brink by an inspired, upset-minded Krop team.

After both teams scored a pair of goals in the first half, the score remained tied at two deep into regulation and appeared headed to overtime. But with three minutes left, Annet Cea beat her defender down the left side and rifled a perfect centering pass in front of the net that Sophia Gomez knocked past Krop keeper Brooke Studnik for the game winner.

Krop (12-4-1) was looking for its first berth in the GMAC semifinals.
