Newsome and Plant's girls get a regular season rematch from their Lady Wildcat Invitational this evening at Newsome High. Tampa Tribune girls soccer correspondent Jarrett Guthrie has more on the game, which kicks off at 6 p.m. If the first contest is anything to go by it should be a must-see for local soccer fans.
Of course, both sides are also scheduled to compete in the Sarasota Holiday Tournament. With the format of the tournament, the two sides could end up playing two games in three days should they meet in the final on Saturday afternoon. The Wolves will face Berkeley Prep, Tampa Prep and St Petersburg Catholic in the opening round, while the Panthers will face Tampa Prep, Berkeley Prep and East Bay.
There are also some interesting games on the boys side in the final regular season gameday before the holiday break. Berkeley Prep will be looking to get off its two-game losing streak before the High School Soccer Classic as it faces River Ridge. Elsewhere, while it is getting second-billing to the girls game, Plant and Newsome's boys should be an interesting contest between a pair of teams who appear in good position for high seeds at their district tournaments, while Gaither and Plant City will look to continue their momentum as they face Alonso and Bloomingdale respectively.
