The Dr. Phillips Panthers saw their breakout season come to a conclusion with a 1-0 loss to Apopka Jan. 15, in the semifinals of the Class 5A District 4 Tournament.

Dr. Phillips (15-3-2) suffered its first loss since Oct. 30 that evening, capping a season that saw the Panthers set a program record for winning percentage (.833), most shutouts (14) and fewest goals allowed (9). Individually, junior forward Shae Vevera now owns the school record for goals in a game (7) and season (33).

Dr. Phillips also had a program-record 12-game winning streak to highlight its phenomenal run.

“We were happy with how we played — we thought the girls played really well and they battled the whole time,” coach Joel Dobrowolski said, reflecting on the defeat to Apopka. “On the other hand, we’re not bringing home any trophies. It was a good season; we set a lot of school records; and I think the girls learned a lot and they grew as people.”
