Lakewood Ranch tops Riverview in boys soccer, 1-0


Lakewood Ranch hosts Riverview in a Class 7A-Region 2 semifinal match on Saturday evening.

LAKEWOOD RANCH — The Lakewood Ranch High boys soccer team finally broke through against Riverview High.

Sam Leavy sent a perfect ball to Drew Clark, who scored the only goal of the game midway through the second half helping the Mustangs to a 1-0 victory over the Rams in the Class 7A-Region 2 semifinals in front of a nice crowd Saturday night at Lakewood Ranch High.

The Mustangs held an 18-2 edge in shots and controlled the ball for most of the match.

“The kids played an unbelievable game,” Lakewood Ranch coach Vito Bavaro said. “We owned the game. For a 1-0 score, what a fantastic game to watch. At this point, all you have to do is get one more to move forward.”

The teams played to a scoreless tie during the regular season.

The top-seeded Mustangs (18-1-1) move into the region final 7 p.m. Wednesday against third-seeded Tampa Plant, a 2-1 winner over Tarpon Springs East Lake.
