Last night, the girls soccer team opened play at the Crescent Cup (32 team tournament at BC\Airport HSs). In a dominant game, the girls opened with a 5-0 win and advance in the winners bracket to what will be a very difficult noon game Saturday against a TBD winner (Bishop England or St. Joseph's). The team will also play Saturday afternoon at either 4:30 or 6pm, depending if a winner or loser at noon. Winning three games would result in a final four berth on Sunday.

On Thursday night the Spring Valley girl’s lacrosse team took down the Blythewood Bengals 7-4. The Vikings had been counting down the days to this game since their bitter overtime loss just two weeks ago. The tone had been set, and they did not disappoint. The Vikings defense denied the Bengals’ first attempt at attacking the goal and delivered the ball into their offensive end.
The attack worked patiently to find the right opening and Breanna Seawell found the back of the net twice. The Bengals first found the goal ten minutes in and scored two goals in twenty seconds. This was as close as the game would be all night, however, and the Vikings answered back swiftly and held them off. Hannah Huntley took back the lead with an assist from Breanna Seawell, which was followed by a goal by Zhane Bradley. Huntley netted another goal, ultimately the game winner, and the half closed 5-2.
In the second half the Bengals were hungry, but the Vikings fought harder. Across the board Spring Valley caused more turnovers, controlled more ground balls, and quickly recovered balls they had lost. The Bengals scored twice in the second half, but fell short with Seawell chipping in two more to secure the lead. Notable performances include; the Vikings defense, lead by Krysta Wilson and Taylor Motlong, who played with intensity the entire 50 minutes, goalies Hannah Hawkins and Gabi Coward saved over 50% of the shots on goal, and midfielders Indirah Canzater and Ainsley Cherubin grabbed interceptions and forced takeaways that ignited fast breaks into our offensive end.
The Vikings have three home games this week on 3/21, 3/23, and 3/25 all at 6pm. Please come out and support your lady Vikings, you won’t be disappointed!
