Mosley clinched home field for the first round of the Region 1-4A girls soccer tournament next week with a 2-1 triumph in double overtime over host Lincoln on Friday in the District 2-4A championship game.
Elsewhere, Pensacola Catholic overwhelmed visiting Bay 7-1 in 2-2A and Franklin County edged Port St. Joe for the 1-1A crown.
The Dolphins, 15-1-2, will host Pace on Wednesday by virtue of Brie Campbell’s deciding goal that ricocheted off a Trojan defender into the net.
Lincoln scored in the 18th minute on Ali Jenkins’ goal and the Dolphins countered in the 31st minute on a goal by Stevie-Marie Mullins. The score remained 1-1 throughout the remainder of the first half, then the second half and through one overtime.
Mosley avoided a penalty kick shootout to determine the district champion. Mariah Rinehart made seven saves for the Dolphins to 11 by Lincoln counterpart Heather Desotell. Kaylin Thomas had an assist for the Dolphins.
Bay, 16-3-1, got a goal from Sarah Judah assisted by Laura Valcourt but it wasn’t nearly enough to deter Catholic, 16-3-3. The Crusaders have advanced to the region championship match in each of the past four seasons.
Genevieve Smith had 16 saves for the Tornadoes, who must travel in their Region 1-2A quarterfinal. Judah’s goal was Bay’s first against Catholic in three matches this season, the teams playing to a scoreless tie in Panama City.
Franklin County captured the 1-1A title with a 2-1 victory over host Port St. Joe. The Seahawks, 12-2-2, opened the scoring when Gracyn Kirvin converted after a corner kick by junior midfielder Jessica Shields. Shields scored the second goal from 20 yards out into the right corner.
Port St. Joe, 11-5-1, avoided a shutout with eight minutes left.
