The road to success can be long, difficult and diverse. 

Both Seabreeze soccer teams won their Five Star Conference Soccer Tournament openers on Saturday, Jan. 7, but the similarities stopped there.

An eight-goal mercy rule came into play in the Seabreeze girls game as the Sandcrabs defeated Taylor 10-1 with the game ending at halftime. Seabreeze’s boys, however, needed overtime to defeat DeLand, 4-3.
