West Boca Raton continued its undefeated run through the regular season with a dominating 7-0 rout of Palm Beach Central on Wednesday.
Standout forward Tatiana Coleman, combined with a suffocating Bulls' defense, was too much for the Broncos.
Coleman gave the Bulls (15-0) the early lead when she dribbled through the Bronco defense and scored an unassisted goal in the 20th minute.
Twelve minutes later, Coleman struck again with an almost identical goal, making it 2-0.
On West Boca's third goal, Coleman showed she can do more than score as she sent a perfect crossing pass to Riley Pepia, who drilled it home.
"Tatiana is a special soccer player with great instincts," Bulls coach Hassan Jaddaoui said. "She knows when to go to goal, when to hold back and she's a great defender as well."
The goals were the 17th and 18th of the season for Coleman, who sat out the second half.
Jordyn Richman extended the Bulls' lead to 4-0 when she placed a shot from 25 yards out pefectly over the Bronco goalkeeper early on the second half.
The only thing more impressive than West Boca's offense was its defense, as it limited the Broncos to just two shots on goal.
"We want to make sure our backline is always strong," Jaddaoui said. "Our defense helps initiate most of our offensive attacks."
Petra Schult, Sara Bellante and Kelly Harris scored the final three goals for the Bulls.
Seminole Ridge 8, Glades Central 0: Devyn Higgs scored three goals to lead the Hawks (3-9) to the rout of the Raiders in Belle Glade. Stephanie Cardona added two goals.
