Just over seven minutes before that score, Svec had a similar one-on-one with Czlonka and the Comets keeper made an outstanding save as the ball trickled wide.
Svec said she learned from that miss the second time around.
“I just wanted to take another touch and get it past her when she came out,” she said.
The move didn’t surprise Wynne, but what might have is how well Svec has adapted to playing on the wing after playing mostly defense for her club team.
“Our defense is pretty good, so we moved her up top to take advantage of her speed,” Wynne said. “She is move comfortable on the wing, so that’s where we have kind of been playing her although she did get some time in the middle. She will wreak a lot of havoc on this county for four years.”
The coach is also fortunate to have senior captain Buckley, who played center midfield and defense. Buckley is the only four-year varsity player on the team and she appreciates every chance she gets to play in this shortened spring season.
“In practice, all we do is play with our heart and we try as hard as we can when we get on the field, and no matter if we win or lose, at the end of the day, we love being here together,” Buckley said. “This is my last season, so I respect all the girls that are here and I’m very happy with this team.”
Against Sparrows Point, Addy Parrott, Marisa Massimini and Jordan Edwards made some spirited offensive runs, but they couldn’t muster a close shot on goal.
The loss was the second straight by the same score as the Comets fell at Perry Hall in the season opener.
“That was a good game. We played very, very well. It was a different performance today, we were flat today,” Sanchez said. “We had a ton of energy at Perry Hall. It was the first game of the season and it was just exciting.”
The road doesn’t get any easier for the Comets, who play at Dulaney on Thursday before hosting Towson (April 8), playing at Hereford (April 10) and closing the season at home against Franklin (April 13).
