The Seabreeze girls soccer season ended with a road loss in the Class 4A regional semifinals.
The Sandcrabs, after beating St. Cloud 8-0 in the first round, lost 5-1 Saturday, Jan. 26, to Harmony High School.
“Harmony scored early and, in my pregame talk, I discussed preventing this possibility,” head coach Frank O’Donnell said in an email. “However, poor marking technique was the cause of the first two goals that could easily have been prevented.”
Trailing 2-0, O’Donnell said his team had several scoring opportunities in the first and second half, but defensive breakdowns led to three soft goals.
O’Donnell said the Sandcrabs, who play a technical style of soccer, struggled with Harmony’s aggressive play, and even suffered three injuries in the game.

The Sandcrabs won their district title by upsetting top-seeded Winter Springs 1-0 on the road.
