Avenging its only Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference division loss, No.10 C. Milton Wright knocked off visiting Edgewood, 1-0, on Tuesday in a Class 3A North Section II girls soccer semifinal.
The only goal came just 1:12 into the action when Megan Pavlitsa scored off a pass from fellow senior Alyssa Austen.
The Mustangs had two other chances in the first half, which was dominated by the Mustangs (12-4). Sarah Murphy's shot was too high with 11 minutes to play, and a minute later, freshman Jordan Nichols could not connect off a feed from Pavlitsa.
Edgewood (12-4) came out strong in the second half and, just three minutes in, freshman Melanie Parncutt saw her shot sail over the goal.
The Rams controlled play the first five minutes, but CMW held strong, before putting together three real scoring chances over a four-minute spurt.
Edgewood's best scoring chance came with 14 minutes left. Isabella Barbieri took a pass from Caitlin Rankin and jammed it past Mustangs keeper Stacy Venanzi. The ball, however, bounced straight back off the right post and was cleared away.
Venanzi finished with six saves and Edgewood goalie Nasia Denegal had a solid game with 11 saves.
No. 6 Catonsville 2, Dulaney 1: The host Comets (14-1) trailed 1-0 at the half in Class 4A North.
No. 7 Severna Park 2, Old Mill 0: The host Falcons (13-3) scored a goal per half to beat the Patriots (5-6) in a Class 4A East sectional final.

No. 3 River Hill 2, Glenelg 1: The Hawks trailed by a goal late in the second half but scored twice in a span of two minutes to knock off the Gladiators in Class 3A East. Chris Lee scored the first goal, and Zach Riso had the second.
No. 4 Marriotts Ridge 7, Hammond 0: Amir Najib had three goals to spearhead the attack for a Mustangs team that notched one of its most lopsided victories of the season in Class 2A South. Jeff Kammerer, Sam Mavronicolas, Simon Klementsen and Keyan Shasti accounted for the other Marriotts Ridge scores. Andre Chen added three assists.
