Even though there was a winner and loser in Tuesday's boys soccer match between North Hagerstown and South Hagerstown at School Stadium, both teams head into postseason play on a positive note. On the strength of a 3-1 victory over South in the MVAL Antietam finale, North (8-6, 4-3) carries a three-game winning streak into Thursday's Maryland Class 3A first-round game at home against Seneca Valley. Despite the loss, South (1-12-1, 1-6) will try to ride the momentum of a strong performance into its 3A West opener Thursday at Damascus.

C.J. Elwood and Matt Lowenhaupt each scored a goal as Clear Spring shut out Boonsboro 2-0 on Thursday night in an MVAL Antietam boys soccer match that was shortened by a persistent rain. The game officials stopped the match with about 15 minutes remaining in the second half after deeming the field unfit for play. “It was miserable there for a while, but we all agreed to stop playing,” said Clear Spring coach Lynn Mills, whose team improved to 12-2-1 overall and 5-1-1 in the Antietam.

The Williamsport girls soccer team didn't stay down for long. Five days after falling 1-0 to Boonsboro in the final of the Washington County tournament - in what Williamsport's Tim Salvagno called “the most disappointing game I've coached” - the Wildcats finished their regular season on a rainy Thursday night at home with one of their biggest victories in years. Williamsport defeated Smithsburg 1-0 to capture the MVAL Antietam title, completing a 7-0 run through the conference while handing the Leopards (6-5-2, 3-1-2)

The Boonsboro boys soccer team found all that glitters is not a golden goal. Especially when you don't score it. It all tarnished for the Warriors in quick fashion when Jacob Gosselin popped in a point-blank goal in the 91st minute - the first minute of the second overtime - on Monday to give Francis Scott Key the sudden goal for a sudden 3-2 victory. “That's what happens during a golden goal,” said Boonsboro coach Roy Rickerds. “It was just how it goes tonight.” But, in reality, the Warriors went from being on the doorstep of a victory with five minutes remaining to tied with under two left in regulation to walking off in sudden death in 16 minutes of playing time.

For the second time this season, Clear Spring defeated North Hagerstown 2-0 in boys soccer. Saturday's victory at South Hagerstown's School Stadium gave Clear Spring a little something extra, however - the Blazers' first ever championship in the Washington County Public Schools tournament. “We've had an awesome season,” said Clear Spring coach Lynn Mills. “We've had the desire to win and played with heart.” And in their heart was Quinn Hoover, their former teammate who was killed in a car accident in March.

The Boonsboro Warriors embraced the role of underdogs Saturday afternoon against the Williamsport Wildcats in the final of the Washington County Girls Soccer Tournament at South Hagerstown. “We came in with the mentality that we had absolutely nothing to lose,” Boonsboro assistant coach Austin Gray said. And there was much to be gained. Michaela Grove scored the lone goal of the game in the 14th minute, and the Warriors held on to defeat the favored Wildcats 1-0 for their second county title in program history.

Practice makes perfect. Clear Spring's boys soccer team has spent plenty of time on the practice pitch working on a particular play. The Blazers were rewarded on Thursday night, as that play gave them the only goal of the evening as they edged Williamsport 1-0 in the MVAL Antietam. Junior midfielder Bradly Mills made a pass to senior midfielder Nick Brandt, who then found junior striker Kevin Carbajal - whose header from the left side found the net in the 63rd minute. “It feels great to get that goal,” Carbajal said.
