The Coral Springs Charter Boy’s soccer team fell to Saint Andrew’s School 2-1 in penalty kicks in the District Playoffs.
With the Panthers up 1-0 with under 15 minutes left in the game, Saint Andrew’s was issued a penalty kick after a questionable call by the official.
The tackle appeared to be outside the box, but after a flop by the forward, he was given a penalty kick, which he capitalized on.
To make matters worse, the same player was issued a yellow card later in the game for flopping.
Jack Ackerman scored the lone regulation goal for the Panthers before Diego Sequeira, Bryce Miller, and Ackerman all scored penalty kicks. However, in the extra round, Saint Andrew’s was able to make one more save and earn the win.
“The boys played like warriors the whole game,” said Head Coach David Horacek. “Even in adversity, they demonstrated solid character. I could not be prouder of these boys. We dominated Saint Andrew’s all night.”
While it was still disappointing to lose, Horacek was more pleased with how his team played on Tuesday than their previous matchup this season when they lost 4-0 to Saint Andrew’s.
Since then, CSC played their best soccer of the season beating FAU High, and Coconut Creek High School for two of their four wins this season.
