ORANGE PARK Buchholz (15-3-5) started the day with some bad news, but ended it by defending its district 1-6 A title with a 2-0 win over Jacksonville Mandarin.

The team learned early Friday that standout sophomore Lauren Hyden suffered a torn ACL during the Bobcat shootout earlier this month. The team was also without senior captain Allie Bullard and two other starters, but still managed to get the win.

Kim Spazienza scored her third goal of the tournament with a penalty in the 2nd minute and the other senior captain, Maja Reichardt, capped off the victory with a goal in the 32nd minute. Reichardt's header off a corner kick was the first goal the team has scored off a corner this year.

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS 4, PIERSON TAYLOR 1:

The Indians had four different players score goals and rode a 3-0 halftime lead for their second 5-3A championship in three years.

Julie Campbell led the Indians (12-7-2) with a goal and an assist while Katie McCollum set her teammates up with two assists.
