Michael Power scored 3 goals and 3 assists for Ponte Vedra. Brendan Francis has two goals.

Marcus Dunlap scored the game winner it over time.  PV goalie, Connor Peaks, had 13 saves. 

For Winter Park Nicco Vella had 3 goals and Andres Nugent scored 2.  Charlie Wickboldt scored an exciting “buzzer beater” at the end of the first half to bring it to within 1 goal.

Although Ponte Vedra had the lead for most of the game they could never stretch it out.  Winter Park won the overtime face-off but lost possession and a holding call after Ponte Vedra picked up the ground ball put the Wildcats a man down for 30 seconds.  Ponte Vedra took advantage of the extra man opportunity to finish the game.

The Sharks (4-1) will play Creekside (2-3) on Monday and the Wildcats, who drop to 4-2 will host University High School (2-3) on Wednesday.
