PSJ girls fall in soccer playoffs

In the second half, the offensive barrage continued with goals in the 43rd, 59th, 64th, 69th and 72nd minutes.

Port St. Joe was outshot 33-2.

Starting goalkeeper Celeste Chiles, an eighth-grader, recorded 13 saves on the night (a season high).

"Celeste actually played quite well to keep the score at eight,” Hindley said. “She was especially solid in the second half, in spite of the goals allowed.

"It was quite an experience for our girls to compete against such a high quality squad. Our program will be better in the future for the experience. St John's has a great chance to repeat as state champions and with only two seniors they should be strong for years to come."

Hindley went on to praise the Lady Tiger Sharks.

"In spite of the regional loss, the coaching staff is very proud of this group and how they progressed during the year,” Hindley said. “We had great success within our district (3-1-2 and runners-up in the district tournament) and had a nine-game unbeaten streak during the middle portion of the schedule."
