Tampa Area Region quarterfinal preview


OUTLOOK: East Lake’s 2-0 victory against Palm Harbor (14-1) was a bit of a shocker as it was the only loss of the Hurricanes’ season. East Lake also holds the lone win against Plant this season, coming during a Thanksgiving tournament. Down a few starters in the loss, the Panthers are at full strength now and have separated themselves as the county’s top side by winning the Class 5A-District 7 tournament. Plant has a complete team, front to back, led by senior midfielders Caroline Bado and Jayne Hagan, forward Charlsey Greiwe, keeper Kara Looby and an attack led by juniors Nastasia Asgedom and Abby Sanchez. more
