Outlook: The Owls, who return to the title game for the first time since winning their only crown in 2013, have won 17 straight after a season-opening loss to Mount Saint Joseph. The Carroll County champions claimed an 11-8 semifinal win over Towson with midfielder Conner Covey scoring four times. Bubba Love and Alex Kozlowski are the standouts in the team’s attack. Sophomore goalie Logan Covey, Conner’s twin, has played well in his first season starting and his attention will be geared toward stopping Patriots’ standout Abe Hubbard. In holding off Centennial, 12-11, in the semifinals, Hubbard led the way with six goals. Last season, Northern-Calvert became the first team from the Southern Maryland Athletic Conference to win a state title when it captured the Class 3A-2A crown over Glenelg.
