Plant City advances to 4A-Region 3 semifinals

Lorena Gutierrez scored her first goal of the season with less than 15 minutes left Wednesday to lead the Plant City girls soccer team past Tarpon Springs 3-2 in the Class 4A-Region 3 quarterfinals.

Diana Corzine got around the Spongers defense and moved toward the goal when she sent a pass across the box to Gutierrez, who put it in the net for the winning score.

“I knew she would give us everything she had,” Plant City coach Caleb Roberts said of Gutierrez. “It is nice to know that we’re moving in the right direction. We have the same group of girls working together, and we are here for the second year in a row.” more
