Unless a number of upsets take place in other districts, Tate can anticipate the regional tournament. The team finished the regular season ranked sixth in the 1-6A region.

No. 2 Fort Walton Beach 2, No. 3 Booker T. Washington 1

The Wildcats couldn’t hold onto a 1-0 halftime advantage at Fort Walton Beach. Last lost on November 18, the team saw their 11-game unbeaten run come to an end.

Booker T. Washington sophomore forward Kyle Hunnicutt scored the game’s first score in the first half on an unassisted goal. The Vikings responded with two second-half goals to steal the win.

Like the Lady Crusaders the night before, the Catholic men’s team picked up a 7-0 shutout in the semi-final against the Bulldogs. Saturday’s game was played from North Bay Haven Academy in Panama City.

Seniors Jake Baumann (3) and Miller Thorsen (4) combined for all team goals. Baumann also recorded three assists while Thorsen, Jacob Wilkinson and Drew Lacour each finished with one assist.
