Douglas dominates regional tournament opener against Western

PARKLAND — So often, Douglas has used its speed and its experience to its advantage.

Wednesday night was no different as the Eagles, one of the state’s most successful girls soccer programs—opened play in the Class 5A regional tournament with a 5-0 victory over Western

For Douglas, the win sets up a matchup against another state soccer power, St. Thomas Aquinas, which advanced with a 4-0 win over Taravella in another regional quarterfinal.

Douglas and St. Thomas will now meet on the Raiders field on Saturday in a regional semifinal that will move one team closer to a potential state tournament berth. more
