Mejia’s early strike lifts Campbell past United and into District Finals

Sports

Campbell senior Henry Mejia’s early goal lifted the Red Devils to a 2-0 win over United Tuesday in the Division III District Semifinals.

Mejia rocketed a shot into the upper-right hand corner of the net, just a minute and a half into the game. That goal proved to be the game-winner for Campbell.

With the win, the Red Devils avenged a loss to United in last year’s District Semifinals.

Campbell added some insurance early in the second half with a penalty kick goal from Victor Orozco.

The Red Devils (15-3) advance to play top-seeded Crestview Saturday in the D3 District Final. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. at South Range High School Stadium.
