in Sports/Uncategorized by

Approaching the end of their strong season, the girls soccer team defeated the Northeast High School Hurricanes out of Oakland Park 10-0 at home Jan. 29. in the 5A D14 district semifinal.

Spectators had high hopes for this game as both teams were vying for a spot in the finals. The Patriots and Hurricanes each had winning records previously: Heritage’s at 9-3-1 and Northeast’s at 8-7-2, but once the whistle blew, Heritage asserted dominance. 

As Heritage demonstrated the prowess and hard work they carried throughout the season, they brought life and excitement to the field. The Patriots displayed skillful dribbles, well-timed crosses and powerful shots on goal to keep the crowd entertained as they continued to score goal after goal. 

Goals were scored by: Camila Domine (2), Lily Sargent Burns (3), Samantha Villaverde, Mattie Hall, Amanda Caines, Ariana Doles and Courtney Caruso. Assists came from Mia Sommers (2), Domine, Sargent Burns, Villaverde, Victoria Burns, Valeria Cogua, Allison Aleman, Janae Johnson and Zahira Freeman.

This game also marked senior night for the team’s five seniors – Camila Domine, Lily Sargent Burns, Amanda Caines, Valeria Cogua and Isabella Spatafora –  who walked down the aisle formed by teammates at the end of the game.
