Bishop Moore Wins Another District Title

Bishop Moore Hornets Girls Soccer Team won their 24th District Title Saturday night @ Lake Highland. The Hornets overcame all odds to claim their 24th District Title. This was their first District Title back in Class 3A against a familiar foe in Lake Highland. "Playing on that turf was a little tough for us", stated Coach Bobby Hurring. "We came together as a team and I am so proud of the girls efforts". The game was decided on a first half goal by Nicole Fischer as she beat Lake Highland Goalkeeper, Shannon Taylor, to the near post on a beautiful left-footed volley from about 20 yards. The goal seemed to fire up the Hornets as they continued to pressure the Lake Highland back line. A couple near misses and the score remained 1-0 at halftime.

The Highlanders came out strong in the second half and almost had the equalizer on a corner kick that Ellery Gainza headed wide. A couple questionable calls by the referee gave the Highlanders 2 set pieces just outside the box but Bishop Moore Goalkeeper Katelyn Koula was up to the task. She punched the first one just up over the top and made an outstanding save on the next to earn her 13th shutout. The Hornets then settled down and played possession till the end to win their 24th District Title.

The Hornets next host Melbourne Central Catholic @ Memorial Stadium while Lake Highland travels to face Satellite.
