River Hill girls soccer in position to claim Howard crown

The Baltimore Sun

The girls soccer scene in Howard County has been an unpredictable blur this season, dominated by strong play from a handful of teams all capable of beating each other on any given day.

Defending county and Class 3A state champion River Hill, a strong favorite to repeat going into the season, has found itself in the driver's seat to do just that.

The No. 6 Hawks (9-4-1 overall and 8-1-1 in Howard) will capture the title with a win or tie against visiting Wilde Lake (6-4-1, 7-2-1)today. Game time is 5:30 p.m.

Wilde Lake goes into the game tied for second place with No. 5 Centennial (9-2-1, 7-2-1). The Eagles, who fell to Reservoir on Tuesday, will host Mount Hebron today at 5:30 p.m. 

If Wilde Lake upsets River Hill and Centennial gets past Mount Hebron, all three teams would finish with a 8-2-1 county mark and thus be declared tri-champions. If Wilde Lake wins and Centennial loses, River Hill and Wilde Lake would be declared co-champions.
