Friday sports schedule

What to watch


Packer Invitational

The tournament, hosted by Largo, wraps up today with the consolation final and championship game. Here is the schedule.

Lakewood vs. Hollins, 4 (consolation final)

Sarasota Cardinal Mooney vs. Jesuit, 7 (championship game)

Girls basketball

Class 4A region final

Lakewood (20-4) at Lincoln Park Academy (18-1), 7

Perhaps the most competitive region final among the six area teams still in the playoffs. This is a matchup between teams each ranked among the top five in 4A and the top 35 overall in the state by MaxPreps. If the Spartans fall behind early, there will not be any panic. Lakewood overcame a 20-3 first quarter deficit to knock off Cocoa in the region semifinals.  

Girls soccer

Class 7A region semifinal

Palm Harbor University (14-3-1) at Plant (16-1), 7

Both teams are ranked among the top 25 overall in the state and the top 45 in the nation according to MaxPreps. The Panthers won the previous two meetings in a pair of tightly contested, low-scoring matches. 


Nature Coast (1-0) at Hernando (1-0), 7

The rivals have offenses that can put up big big numbers. Each team scored at least seven runs in their season openers.
