The IMG Academy soccer program's U-19 girls' team this past weekend bounced back from an early loss to win two tough games and qualify for the Florida State Cup Final Four.
All games were decided by one goal, with 1-0 loss to Clearwater, a 3-2 win over Sunblazer and a wild 4-3 victory against HC United.
After not capitalizing on numerous chances against Clearwater, IMG led for much of the game against Sunblazer. Up 2-0, IMG allowed two goals in the second half before getting the game-winner. Shelby Payne scored twice and Madison Solow added the other goal.
Against HC United, IMG twice trailed during the game, but two goals from Sydney Payne (Shelby's twin sister) and one each from Jessica Wolfe and Erika Tymrak pushed IMG to victory.
IMG will face Kendall Soccer Coalition White at 3 p.m., Saturday, May 30 in Ft. Lauderdale. The winner will play in the championship May 31 at 11 a.m.
