South River is loaded with senior experience and is in contention for the Anne Arundel County title and a Class 4A state crown. The Cavaliers are led by senior Erica Page and the Seahawks by senior Sarah Pfundstein. Spalding has a young, highly skilled technical team surrounding Page, while the Seahawks are smart, aggressive and fast.

WHEN: : Tuesday, 5 p.m.
OUTLOOK:: The visiting Falcons (5-1 going into the week) knocked off fellow county power Broadneck, 2-1, in double overtime last week on a goal from J.D. Kershaw in a tightly marked, physical game. The Cougars (8-0) allowed just five goals in their eight wins behind an experienced defense led by D Josh Klaiss and G Kody Herd. The Cougars' back line will face Colin Lay joining Kershaw for the Falcons. The Cougars have received balanced scoring from Adam Jankiewicz, Jeremy Harsanyi, Kolby Herd and Justin Kestler leading the way.
