Noteworthy events during game

What a game at the Shark Tank on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The Panthers of Tampa Plant HS traveled to to Ponte Vedra and almost left with the win. The first half was close and fast paced. The Sharks jumped out to an early 4-0 lead midway through the 1st quarter and the game looked to be a easy one for the Sharks. The Panthers settled down and made it a great game from that point on. The Panthers took their first lead of the game with a little over 3 minutes left to play. The Sharks Jack Reed tied the game at the 2 minute mark with a strong dodge to the net and popped it in. With just over a minute left, sophomore Cory Bloss put the Sharks ahead with an unassisted goal in what would seal the deal for Ponte Vedra. The Sharks are now 3-0 on the season and travel to play Matanzas on Monday night. The Panthers played a great game and are now 5-1 on the season with their next game on Tuesday, against St Petersburg.
