Anyone in attendance at the September 24 girls soccer game between Severn and St. Mary’s witnessed a convincing case for why the Admirals might be favorites to win the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference this fall, as the visitors came away with a 7-1 win over the host Saints. Severn defender Mori Sokoloff opened the scoring for the visiting Admirals a few minutes into the game with what can only be described as a long-distance bomb. Sokoloff took a free kick from 45 yards away, with everyone on the field expecting a lofted pass into the box for a chance at a header. Instead, Sokoloff thumped an ambitious blast that swished into the back of the goal untouched, stunning the St. Mary’s defense and giving Severn a 1-0 lead. Alina Valencia doubled Severn’s advantage minutes later, running onto an excellent through-ball by Elizabeth Barroll and ripping a far-post shot for a goal and 2-0 Admiral lead. Severn added second-half goals by Sophie Fionda (assisted by Madison Tryon), Fionda again (assisted by Abby Witzel), Sokoloff again (assisted by Witzel), Kylie Benz unassisted and Witzel on a penalty. Zoee Stencil made 6 saves in the win for Severn. Through six games the Admirals are 5-1 overall and 4-0 in the IAAM B, tied atop the conference standings with Mount de Sales.
