TAMPA - Bloomingdale advanced to the final of the Premier bracket at the Student Sports Soccer Tournament at Ed Radice Complex, but only after surviving a major scare from a talented Berkeley Prep team, coming from 2-0 down to win 3-2, Tom Davidson scoring the game winner five minutes from full time.

The Buccaneers took a two- goal lead in the first half through goals by Tom Biddenger and Tyler Davis, but down by two goals, the Bulls appeared to wake up, creating a number of good chances, but were turned back by Berkeley goalkeeper Andy McAdams.

Berkeley was dealt a major blow in the second half when captain Demitri Amaoutakis was replaced because of injury, and it was his absence that may have led to the Bulls' comeback, with Muniz making amends for his earlier miss, scoring twice in four minutes to tie the game. Muniz also played a part in Davidson's goal, his shot being too hot to handle for McAdams, Davidson scoring on the rebound to give the Bulls the lead, 3-2.

Bloomingdale had earlier crushed a highly ranked Lake Mary team 4-0 to advance to the semifinals, while Berkeley had to fight with Satellite, McAdams saving a penalty in regulation and then two in a shootout to advance Berkeley to their showdown with Bloomingdale.< JESUIT, BRANDON IN ELITE FINAL: Brandon staged two remarkable comebacks to earn a place in the final of the Elite bracket at the Student Sports Soccer tournament, defeating Palm Harbor and Palm Beach Gardens after being down in both games.

Brandon took the lead in their semifinals against Palm Beach Gardens, Andy Skiffington scoring on a first-time shot. The Gators pulled even five minutes later, and took the lead four minutes into the second half. It was all Brandon, Skiffington adding a second with a back post tap-in, and Jermaine Walters sealing the victory with a powerful header from a Matt Thompson corner.

Jesuit will face the Eagles in the final after the Tigers easily defeated Seabreeze 3-0, Xaviero Pecora continuing his scoring streak, getting the opener for the Tigers. Jesuit dominated the game from the outset, and Chad Dalton capitalized on a rebound opportunity to extend the Tigers lead to 2-0 before the break.

Kevin Sierra scored a fantastic curling effort in the second half to close out the scoring.

Brandon and Jesuit both staged thrilling comebacks earlier in the day to advance to the semifinals, Brandon coming from 3-1 down to Palm Harbor at half-time before goals by Walters and two from Ryan Teneyck, including a 25- yard volley to win the game, took the Eagles through 4-3. Jesuit had a similar comeback, Chad Dalton scoring midway twice against Varela to tie the game 3-3 before goalkeeper Keith Meehan saved Varela's first penalty, with all five Jesuit players scoring on their penalties to advance the Tigers.<
