CRESTVIEW — Sabrina Bonilla was a one lady wrecking crew for the Milton High School girls soccer team Monday night as the Panthers faced off against Crestview at Jack Foster Stadium.

Bonilla scored all four Milton goals in the first half as the Panthers held off the Bulldogs 4-3.

“We were always playing catch up,” Bulldog Coach Carl Everitt said. “We gave them four goals. The goals were easy goals.

“We showed a lot of character in the second half. I like the fact that we came back and closed the score to 4-3. But if you are always playing from behind you are never going to win games.   

Bonilla’s first goal, which game around the 20-minuter mark, gave the Panthers a lead they would hold the rest of the night.

Seven minutes later Bonilla struck again and it looked as if Milton would put the match away early. As it turned out, that wasn’t the case.

Ashley Matthews put the Bulldogs (3-3) on the board with a header into the net to cut Milton’s lead in half 32 minutes into play. Bonilla came right back scoring twice in the closing minutes of the first half to put the match seemingly out of reach.
