PEMBROKE PINES, FL — Boca Raton Football Club defeated Heights FC in the APSL Quarterfinals 5-1 on Sunday to move on in the APSL Playoffs.
A brace by Gabriel Diniz, and Matheus Ayrolla, plus a goal by Carlos Meneses were the difference as the Boys in Blue were able to show their dominance over the expansion side, to move Boca Raton FC to the APSL Semifinals for the fourth year in a row.
“We played a great game,” said Coach Villy Washington. “The team was composed and was able to make the opposition pay when they were caught off-guard.”
Boca Raton FC will now face South Florida FC in the APSL Semifinals as the club looks to head back to the APSL Finals and solidify their APSL dominance with their APSL-record third championship in four years.
“We are taking it one game at a time,” added defender Kevin Byrne. “We know the success Boca Raton has had in the APSL but we are also cautious and are going to focus only in our upcoming game. South Florida FC has a strong team, they’ve made the finals both in the Summer and Fall of the 2017 Season and we should respect that and prepare for a battle for 90 or more minutes.”
