Warriors blank Mariners

Havre de Grace's 4-0 win came at home over Joppatowne in the 1A South, Section I final.

The Warriors (5-7) couldn't figure a way to score against Joppatowne (0-11) and its keeper Kira Toro, who held the Warriors scoreless until the final five minutes of the first half. Lauren Herrington broke the ice, scoring at the 4:49 mark with assist from Rachel Rossi.

With 44 seconds left in the half, Kaley Harris took a long pass from Herrington and pushed it past Toro for the 2-0 lead.

Havre de Grace added two more in the second half, with Frankie Reeling scoring unassisted and Carly Thompson adding the final goal with an assist from Zuheylie Pagan.

Toro finished her outstanding effort with 19 saves and Havre de Grace keeper Riley Arnold posted one save.

The Warriors were to host Manchester Valley, the defending Class 1A state champion, Tuesday for the region title.

Bobcats beat Mustangs

Bel Air junior forward Kayla Klock scored twice Thursday evening to lead the Bobcats girls soccer team past host C. Milton Wright, 3-1, in the Class 3A North, Section II final.

The win puts the Bobcats (14-2-1) into the region championship game which was to be played Tuesday at Westminster. Bel Air last won a region title in 2010.

In Thursday's win, Klock broke up a scoreless battle just a little more than 12 minutes into the first half, taking a cross from Juliana Portera and putting it past CMW keeper Stacy Venanzi.

CMW (12-5) evened the score with 38 seconds left in the half when Angela Kuhn got her head on a corner kick and put the ball in the goal.

Klock then added her second goal, the eventual game winner, with 15 minutes left to play. Senior Brooke Tauber controlled a loose ball, fed it to Klock, who finished it.

Five and a half minutes later, Natalie Decker put on the finishing touch, scoring on a header, off a cross from Portera.

Bel Air goalie Andrea Sipos made seven saves and CMW goalie Venanzi finished with five.
