The best season in Martin County girls soccer program history came to a disappointing end in Miami as Lourdes Academy blanked the Tigers 4-0 at Columbus High School in a 6A state semifinal Friday.

The Bobcats (12-2-1), the defending 6A state champions and winners of the title three of the last four years, picked up two goals from Tessa Abreu and got goals from Coco Aguilar and Oli Borroto to advance to a meeting with Venice on Mar. 5.

With their fourth consecutive road trip and spanning over 1,200 miles of travel to Tampa, Melbourne, Lakeland and finally down to Miami, the Tigers (17-3-2) ultimately achieved program firsts that will be remembered by Martin County head coach Josh Moberg for a long time to come.

“There wasn’t a lot of sadness at the end, I think the girls were really happy with how well we played and what they were able to accomplish,” Moberg said. “Making history for the school for our first Final Four, and I told the girls, they can’t hang their heads. I’m extremely proud of what they’ve done and now this has to be the new expectation. It’s not a dream anymore to be here, let it be an expectation.”
