Mitchell just off the mark in state semifinal loss

TRINITY — The way both teams were buzzing the net, a 1-0 final seemed not even remotely possible.

Unfortunately for Mitchell its prime first-half scoring opportunities would be the best of the night. Defending state champion Ponte Vedra made it out of town with a 1-0 win in the Class 3A state semifinals, ending Mitchell’s quest for its first girls soccer championship.

“I was confident the whole way,” said Mustangs coach Karl Kukec. “Anybody could have won that game, they just got luckier than us.” more
