LECANTO — Perhaps the way Lecanto girls soccer coach Roselle Lattin described her team’s play following its 3-0 ouster by Fleming Island in the Class 4A Region 1 semifinals was best.

“We needed to play in the first half like we did in the second half,” she said. “We played them evenly in the second half, and it might have been completely different. We were down 3-0 to a team that has given up one goal all season.

“We could have just given up and packed it in, but the girls didn’t. This is a young team, we have just one senior, and this is something we can build on.” more
