19-and-under girls -- Severna Park Alliance coach Tom Ehart had a feeling that his undefeated team was headed for trouble even before last Sunday's Washington Area Girls Soccer League game against the Vista (Va.) Phoenix.

"On the way down, we got lost, someone gave us the wrong directions," said Ehart. "We wound up getting there right at game time and the refs were getting ready to blow the whistle.

Michelle Salmon scored the game's first goal on an assist by Tonya Kolodziejski, giving the Alliance (4-1 overall, 3-1 in the WAGS) a lead 20 minutes in the first half. The Phoenix tied the game 10 minutes later on a direct kick, then broke the tie just before the end of the half on a corner kick. Goalkeeper Erin Hon collected 10 saves in a losing effort.

"That was our worst game of the year, we just didn't play well at all," Ehart said. "It was kind of ugly."

This Saturday, Severna Park will host the Potomac Cougars in a league game at 4:30 p.m. On Sunday, they will take on the Columbia Crusaders in the semifinals of the Maryland Cup Tournament at 9 a.m. At 2 p.m. Sunday they will play host to Braddock Road (Va.) in another league contest.
