Girls soccer: Players to watch

Riley Barger

Bryn Mawr, midfielder, senior

The Maryland-bound All-Metro first-team player, who provided 12 goals and 20 assists last season, brings dazzling, do-it-all skills to the middle of the field for the two-time IAAM B champion Mawrtians.

Lexi Cavey

Severna Park, goalkeeper, senior

Cavey posted nine shutouts and allowed two goals last season for the Falcons. Her leadership and athleticism make the Falcons one of the favorites in Anne Arundel.

Alli Cislo

Old Mill, forward, junior

One of the area's most dangerous players with the ball at her feet, Cislo continually overcomes extra attention to create scoring chances for the Patriots. Last season, she finished with 14 goals and three assists.

Taylor Cummings

McDonogh, forward, senior

The All-Metro first-team pick dominates defenses with speed, strength and athleticism. She finished with 18 goals and 10 assists for the IAAM A champion Eagles last season and is set to play lacrosse at Maryland next year.

Amanda Jackson

Reservoir, forward, junior

With four goals and two assists in five wins, the All-Metro first-team selection made last year's Class 3A state playoffs her very own for the champion Gators. She finished the season with a team-high 13goals and nine assists.

Lexie Niedoba

Mercy, midfielder, senior

A steadying influence and playmaker in the middle, Niedoba (10goals, 15 assists last season) is able to control the game with great feet and smart decisions. She's able to get the ball anywhere on the field to set up teammates and brings a heavy shot.

Alexis Prior-Brown

Mercy, forward, senior

The heavily marked Prior-Brown brings uncanny offensive skills that produced 21 goals and 10 assists last season. The All-Metro first-team pick, set to play at Maryland, makes Mercy a favorite to knock off defending IAAM champ McDonogh.

Alexa Quaranta

Perry Hall, midfielder, senior

One of the area's most versatile players, Quaranta (12 goals, 15assists last season) combines high skills, athleticism and composure to make a positive impact on games.    

Ashley Spivey

McDonogh, midfielder, senior

Last year's All-Metro Player of the Year brings a complete package for the defending IAAM champion Eagles, starting with fierce and dynamic play. Headed for Maryland next year, Spivey has career totals of 66 goals and 43 assists.
