Lady Eagles grounded at Fleming Island

Junior midfielder Audrey Johnson had two assists and a goal to lead host Orange Park-Fleming Island to a 5-0 victory over Springstead in a Class 4A, Region I quarterfinal Wednesday night.

The Golden Eagles (19-0-2) got all the scoring they would need on their opening possession. Just 1:39 into the game, forward Tori Carmichael took a crossing pass from fellow junior Lexie Martorana and drilled a left-footer to the upper right corner of the goal from 20 yards out.

Springstead (17-5-1) played the first half conservatively, with most of its players stationed at the defensive end. As a result, the Lady Eagles possessed the ball for only six of the first 40 minutes, mustering just one shot on Fleming Island keeper Katie Nimitz. more
