The Titans defeated Hill College 4-0 to win Group B and advance to the semifinals for the sixth consecutive season. The defending national champions defeated Hill College in group play for the second straight season.
Sophomore Laura Cetina scored twice in the first 11 minutes of the game and has scored four goals in the national tournament.
Cetina scored the first goal which began with a corner kick from Lena Stevens. The first two shots went over the crossbar, a third was covered but the ball reached Cetina who buried it after eight minutes of the game.
It wasn’t long before Cetina fired a rocket from outside the box that went over the keeper and gave the Titans a 2-0 lead in the first 10 minutes of the contest.
It looked as if Hill College would cut the lead in half in the 23rd minute when Hill College was awarded a penalty kick. But goalie Chloe Adams made the save to protect the shutout.
It would remain 2-0 at halftime, but Eastern Florida State College would add to the lead five minutes into the second half when Lea Monteiro headed a Lena Stevens corner kick past the goalie.
“Laura has been hot, Kailey (Dunne) and Andrea (Fuentes) have been hurt and they really did today, it was good to get up early so we could rest some players and the guys that came on played really well.” Scott Carswell, women’s soccer coach at Eastern Florida State College, said.
“We’re back to playing like we did a couple of weeks ago, stringing together multiple passes, putting in our crosses and scoring on restarts, all the things we’ve been talking about since August that we wanted to do, we’ve got them.” been doing now.”
The Titans defense would hold strong against a Hill College offensive attack.
“All four of them played well, Sofia (Posner) was amazing, Andrea (Fuentes) scored 19 right out of the game, Jessica (Martin) was all over the place and Chloe (Adams) saved a penalty. It was a good team effort,” Carswell said.
“We were a bit worried about being a general team, but now that we are here, we have some confidence. We’ve seen the Iowa Western and they’ve gotten better throughout the season, but so have we and we’re excited to play the game.”
Then, in the 86th minute, Eastern Florida State College’s Nancy Almanza scored from the penalty kick.
