The Killer Whales captured the Severna Park Green Hornets seventh and eighth grade girls soccer title with a 2-0 win over the Zebras on November 12 at Kinder Park.
The Whales had a first-half goal from Isla Crawford, who scored in traffic from 10 yards out. Anya Diggs found the back of the net in the second half, scoring on a 20-yarder from outside the box.
Goalkeeper Jocelyn Renn recorded her seventh shutout of the season, behind a stalwart back line of Nicole Baker, Mary Winship, Taylor Fitchett, Regan Graves and Jaidyn Railsback. Ivory Bauer, Sage McGuire and Scarlett Wissel commanded the midfield, while forwards Annabel Collins, Preslie Havens, Riley Hobby and Zoey Stafford kept constant pressure on the Zebras, who entered the playoffs as the No. 1 seed and regular season champs. The Whales missed injured forward Keira MacBride, who cheered her team on to the championship.
