Sam Terrill finished a cross from Alex McKay and one from Taylor Hensh as Marriotts Ridge defeated Howard, 4-0, on Wednesday.
Emily Wolf and Zoe Stukenberg sandwiched goals between Terrill's tallies. Wolf finished a deflection off a shot at 39:39 in the second half. The ball hit a Howard defender and went into the net. Stukenberg's score came off of Alexis Zadjura's corner kick at 30:00 in the second half.
"At this point in the season, we are firing on all cylinders," said Marriotts Ridge coach Robin Grey. "With each game we've gained confidence and experience. This team works hard as a unit and is finishing better than I have ever seen them. (5-2-1 overall) is a great place to be as we head into the end of the regular season and playoffs."
Marriotts Ridge keeper Jenna Bergquist made five saves in the game.
Cassidy Burns and Elizabeth Price shared goalkeeping duties for Howard and combined for nine saves.
Wilde Lake and Glenelg played to a 2-2 overtime tie.
Both of Wilde Lake's goals were from Gillian Sawyer. Kathleen Mensing and Becca Pontius scored for Glenelg.
One goal is all it took
Mt. Hebron defeated Atholton, 1-0. "We had control of the ball most of the first half, then we lost our mark with about 5 minutes to go into the first half and they scored," said Atholton coach Stephanie Stoutenborough. "The second half was pretty much the same, again we just couldn't score."
Newly returning from a MCL injury, Erica Staedeli knocked home the game-winning shot for Mt. Hebron. Nia Crump had the assist.
"We scored just before halftime in the 39th minute," said Mt. Hebron coach Tim Deppen. "We managed to play a pretty evenly matched second half, both teams getting some solid scoring chances. Again, senior goalie Tahlia Tavai had an outstanding game. Her finest moment was in the last 5 minutes of the game. Atholton had a long throw-in and the ball was flicked near post almost over Tahlia's hand. She jumped backwards with an outreached hand and was able to clear the ball over the crossbar. We cleared Atholton's next goal kick and held them for the remainder of the half."
Atholton's Amy Weinberg had 10 saves; Tavai had eight for Mt. Hebron.
With the victory, the Vikings move to 5-2 in the county and 5-3 overall.
