WILLIAMSPORT - The Smithsburg Leopards' girls soccer team did not panic when it started the season with an 0-3 record.
Smithsburg, which played in the last three state tournaments, shook off the bad start and started a trend of continuous improvement.
Thursday night, junior forward Shannon Fowkes scored two goals as the Leopards won for the fourth time in their last five tries, beating Williamsport 2-0 in an MVAL Antietam Conference matchup.
"I thought that it was a pretty even match," Fowkes said. "We had a lot of shots. I finally started to finish it. Both of my goals were off of great passes. Tonight was another big win for us. We will just build off of it and keep the momentum going. Our defense definitely stepped it up tonight. They put on the pressure pretty well."
