Wednesday evening, Weeki Wachee Hornets (12-7-1) entered Nature Coast’s Shark Tank in an attempt to win the district championships. In a matchup that would feature a scoreless first half and phenomenal defense from both sides, the Sharks (13-6) would pull away late in the second period to score three goals and go on to be this year’s district champs.

“Today started a little bit rough, took us a second to get our feet moving and our passing working,” said Head Coach Amy Mainella of Nature Coast. When asked what she thought  was a key moment in the game, she said, “Making the first goal…it really brought us alive.”

Key players for the Sharks were #1 Kennedy Rasmussen (Fr.) with 6 saves, #3 Jaiden  Gilbert (Jr.) with 2 goals, and #6 Madalyn Cullum (Sr.) with 1 goal and 1 assist.

According to Head Coach Tom Pellito of Weeki Wachee, “Compared to the regular season, this was a good performance for us. We got a lot of close calls…we just couldn’t put it in the net.”
