Dragons pose no problem

TAMPA -- Berkeley Prep coach Dave Zimmerman's biggest goals for his team Thursday were simple: Continue a month-long streak of splendid play and finish the game without any major injuries.

Considering the Buccaneers' opponent was Lake Placid, Zimmerman had reason to worry. The Dragons are not a traditional soccer power -- meaning Berkeley Prep may overlook them -- and they were coming off a game in which four of their players were red-carded for fighting and rough play.

The Buccaneers heeded their long-time coach's directions, dominating Lake Placid in a 7-1 win. Berkeley Prep (10-11-4) will travel to Fort Myers Bishop Verot on Tuesday for a semifinal.

The Bucs dominated in every phase of the game, taking 27 shots on goal and scoring three times in the first 30 minutes. Lake Placid didn't get off a shot until the 49th minute and didn't find the back of the net until the 62nd minute when Ernesto Manzo beat relief keeper Ben Rosenzweig with a free kick from about 25 yards.

The Bucs got on the board when Rosenzweig assisted on the first of Demetri Arnaoutakis' three goals. Joining him in the scorebook were Scott Strickland (twice), Tyler Green and freshman Thomas Biddinger.

"I'm pleased with us getting a great win and getting out of here without any injuries," Zimmerman said. "I tried to get them focused and get their mind-set to be that they had to come out and act like they were playing CCC or Jesuit."

Terrapins win in blowout

LAKELAND -- Tampa Prep, cruised to a 7-1 victory over Lakeland Santa Fe Catholic.

The Terrapins (14-3-5) advance to the semifinals next week.

"Our guys were really focused on this game," Tampa Prep coach Jose DaCosta said. "We really came together as a team tonight."

James Farrell scored the first two Terrapin goals, as Tampa Prep put constant pressure on the Hawks defense and goalkeeper Matt Bredbenner, who was playing despite having flu-like symptoms.

"We had a couple of good chances to score in the second half, we just could not get it done." Santa Fe Catholic coach Nick Barrios said. "The score was not indicative of how close the game was."

The Hawks were also without sweeper Trevor O'Neal, who was ill.

The Hawks' only goal came in the 65th minute when Mark Barrios knocked in a rebound shot after Terrapins goalie Kevin Karpay stopped a blast from Matt McGowan.

Tampa Prep's Brock Johnson answered with a goal two minutes later.
