Cobras and Eagles Battle it Out
(Pictured: Pride players form Tech and Aberdeen)Tech and Aberdeen battled through the first half of what would be a very exciting game. Charity scored first for Tech, and minutes later Anj scored the equalizer for Deen. Aberdeen tallied another goal close to the end of the second half to take the lead. Katelyn Kelly stepped into the center midfield role for Tech and rocked a shot up the field that found the net, tying the game for a second time. Aberdeen broke open offensively with Alyssa adding two goals for the Eagles, one off a beautiful assist from Anj. Charity gave Tech a final rally as she finished a cross from Jackie. Great job by all our Pride players! Final Pride stats for the evening:
Charity: 2 goals

Anj and Alyssa Lead the Eagles to Victory
by CJ Malinowski
When the Eagles came out for the second half of their girls’ soccer game against Bel Air Monday, the girls were a different team: quicker, more aggressive and putting the pressure on the Bobcats.
The new look for Aberdeen proved to do well as they scored the lone goal of the game with 16:20 left on the clock.
The hustle and intensity of the Aberdeen offense paid off when Junior Alyssa Anderson saw a window and pushed the ball from the right sideline to the left half of the goal, finding junior Andrea Siedlarczyk. Siedlarczyk saw the goalie coming out to play the shot and put the ball over the sliding keeper for the score.
Both teams played a very evenly match game, especially in the first half. A majority of the game was played at midfield, and each team had shots that were near goals.
Twelve minutes into the game, Aberdeen’s Anderson found herself with a steal from a Bobcat defender and with just the goalie to beat. Winding up for her kick, she hooked the ball just to the left of the goal, keeping the game a 0-0 tie.
Less than a minute later, Bel Air answered back with a shot of their own, having Kathryn Merrick dish the ball to Alex Kaputsos and back to Merrick for the blocked shot.
But the closest near goal in the first half belonged to Aberdeen when Anderson threw a bomb-of-a-throw-in to Siedlarczyk, but the tough Bel Air defense shut the duo down with 1:38 left before the half.
Anderson was Aberdeen’s go-to player for throw-ins, but the Eagle was almost always countered by Bobcat defender Julie Tacka. Tacka would line herself up with what seemed to be every option Anderson had for her throw-in and head the ball out of danger.
In all, it was Aberdeen’s second half pressure and control of the ball that won them the game, but six saves by keeper Shauna Anderson didn’t hurt the Eagles’ chances.
Ashley and Allie Lead Indians in UCBAC Win
Published: Tuesday, September 23, 2008 5:05 AM CDT Ashley Day scored three unassisted goals to lead No. 4 North East to a 5-0 girls’ soccer victory over fifth-ranked Harford Tech on Monday at Harford Community College. (Pictured: Ashley Day, Allie Dant, Charity Lumpkins meet as Captains of opposing teams before the match)
Also, from an interview with Digital Sports: “It started off as a really tough game,” explained North East’s Allie Dant. “Harford Tech came out very strong; we were expecting a real strong offensive push from them, and our defense was prepared for it.”
North East made the firs step to retaining their undefeated status not more than four minutes into the first half when Indian’s Ashley Day cleaned up a defended shot by teammate Shelby Smith for the first score of the game.
That wouldn’t be the last time Day found the net. She returned on the offensive again in the first half with another cleanup job for her second goal of the night.
Attacking the Tech goalie Brittney Lozzi, the Indians Taylor Murphy put a header directly into the crossbar that ricocheted off to Smith, who fired a shot that was defended well by Cobra Lozzi but tapped in by Day.
Coming into the half with two goals under her belt, Day headed towards the goal on a breakaway where she finished her night with her third goal.
“We had a lot of good crosses today,” Dant said. “Everybody was on the ball. We pushed up as a team, and, being there as a team, there was just always somebody there at the end of the cross.”
“It was pretty exciting,” Day said of her three-score night. “I just followed the shots. Everybody else was taking the shots and I just did what he has been telling us all year, and that’s to follow the shots.”
The Indians will take on a tough team in Aberdeen next week, and Day and Dant agree that it will be a big game.
“Aberdeen is a really tough team,” said Dant. “They have always been tough, and we are looking forward to playing them.”
Tigers Notch A Win

Rachel scores on CMW
CMW 4, Aberdeen 1-Rachel Keeley netted the lone goal for the Eagles (4-1, 0-1), who trailed 2-0 at halftime, on a direct kick.
Indians Continue Streak with 4th Straight Shut Out
From the Cecil Whig: North East allowed just one shot on goal Wednesday, and seniors Allie Dant and Kaitlyn Decker anchored the fourth-ranked Indians’ fourth straight shutout, 4-0 over host Elkton.
“We’re solid,” Decker said. “Allie back there, she cleans up anything. She’s just so strong back there. I got my side covered, and we got new defenders coming off on the other side, and they’re just playing really strong. They step up any time the ball comes.”
While the defensive effort marked a continued trend for North East, its slow start offensively did not.
After being denied on a point-blank chance 24 minutes in, senior Ashley Day then received a cross from junior Shelby Smith but sailed the ball over the crossbar with 12:40 remaining in the opening half.
However, Day and Smith hooked up again with 6:32 on the clock, and this time, Day finished the cross with a header past Golden Elks keeper Megan Dennis (16 saves) for a 1-0 advantage.
“Basically, I guess we were kind of getting nervous in the beginning, because we were like, ‘Oh crap, we don’t have four goals already,’” Day said. “I think we were just focusing …#045; because we did not want to go into the second half with a tied game.”

Pride Players Lead the Eagles
In last night's match between the Aberdeen Eagles and the Edgewood Rams, Anj started the scoring for the Eagles, assisting a highlight reel goal by Rachel. Anj crossed the ball to Rachel, but the ball went behind her so she back heel flicked the ball through the air and into the net. Alyssa notched a goal for Aberdeen in the second half, and Lindsey scored her first goal as a member of the varsity quad. Jess Deitrick came up big at the end of the game, securing the shut out as the Rams were awarded a corner kick with no time on the clock. Great Job ladies!

“Clorissa made the two goals when it counted,” Tigers coach Jim Jones said. “They were both off beautiful passes, and it’s nice seeing her get things going again after her dry spell in the middle of the season.”
Kirsten Stallone scored with less than 10 minutes remaining in the second half on a scramble in front of the net to cut the deficit in half, but the second-ranked Eagles (7-7) couldn’t net the equalizer.
“Bo Manor came to play,” Jones said. “It was like their (3-2 overtime) game against Marriotts Ridge. They just played with so much heart and desire. It was hard to shake them.”

Cecil Whig Reports-Cole
Whig Staff Reports, 09/19/06-
It seems that no matter where she is positioned on the field, North East senior Cole Dant is always in the thick of things and always making plays.
Last season, as a forward, Dant registered 22 goals and 12 assists, earning All-County Player of the Year honors.
This year, playing in the midfield, the points are still there, but the statistics have been reversed.
Dant notched three assists and one goal Monday as the fourth-ranked Indians (2-0) ran away with an 8-2 home victory over Bo Manor (1-2).
“He’s (coach Tom Decker) got me playing midfield this year because we’re working on distributing the ball from the forwards to midfield and getting more shots from the midfield,” said Dant, who now has two goals and five assists on the year. “We’re also working on passing the ball back to the defense and just moving the ball around in general.
“It seemed to be working pretty well today. I was pretty impressed with how we played.”
Cole also had a goal and 2 assists in the NE vs Joppa game.
Congratulations to Andrea Siedlarczyk, who led the Aberdeen Eagles to a 5-0 rout of Harford Tech with two goals scored!! Taryn Sanchez and Monica Siedlarczyk had assists in the win. Pride keeper Megan Logan recorded two saves and the win.

BECCA JACKSON- PERRYVILLE PANTHERS
Says Schmidt of Becca "She looks fantastic in goal. I knwo the girls are proud of what Becca does, as far as how awesome she is. They don't want to let the ball get to her, but they have confidence that she'll make saves and do the right thing if the ball gets back there."
ASHLEY NORTHAM-PERRYVILLE PANTHERS
Says Schmidt "She's just got good ball control. She's a physical player, she can shoot. She can do it all"
BRITTANY BENSER_ PERRYVILLE PANTHERS
Coach Schmidt is looking to Brittany to make an impact on the forward/midfield line.
KIRSTEN STALLONE-BO MANOR
Coach Maylish expects Kirsten to be the Eagles main scoring threat this season, and her leadership on the field will play a huge role for them. Says Maylish "She's a strong forward. She knows how to read the field and the defense."

North East staves off Elkton
Thursday, September 22, 2005 9:08 AM EDT
By Chuck Ristano email@example.com
ELKTON - It took an early season defeat on Sept. 7, but Elkton figured out North East's pass-first offense and gave the Indians quite a scare Wednesday in girls' soccer action. The second-ranked Indians pressured the Elks immensely but just squeaked by with a 3-2 victory.
"The first half got us out of our game, and we were playing at their pace," Decker said.
"The girls had to learn, and we talked at halftime that we have to control our pace and control the game, which we did in the second half." When ALLIE DANT scored her first of two goals three minutes in, it looked as if the match was heading the way of the teams' first meeting this season. But as things developed, it became obvious that wouldn't be the case. Ten minutes after DANT's opening strike, North East goaltender Amanda Crockett came out of her net to play a loose ball. Elkton's Tierra Robinson beat an Indian defender to the pass, raced down the left side of the field and tied the game at one. It was only the second goal the standout sophomore goalie Crockett had given up all season.
Elkton then took the lead at 37:00, stunning the North East faithful in the crowd. The euphoria didn't last long, as DANT put home her second goal 1:20 later n with an assist from Lauren Buckworth n to tie the game back up.
"The reason I got the two goals was because people passed it to me," DANT said. "We just make passes together and work well as a team and gel well together."
Pride players Cynthia, Crystal, and Megan have a great week!!
Eagles and Indians
September 10, 2005
Aberdeen hosted their annual pre-season tournament, inviting North East, Annapolis, and Easton. Aberdeen devastated Annapolis in a 6-0 rout. Cynthia and Crystal each tallied a goal in the win. North East dominated Easton 3-0. Cole Dant had two goals and an assist in the win. In the final game, North East prevailed over Aberdeen in a close match. Aberdeen scored minutes into the first half when North East's rookie keeper failed to make a routine clearance. Cole scored both goals for North East.
Congrats to Cole Dant for making the cover of the Cecil Whig Fall Preview. (Harford County needs to learn from the great Fall Preview Cecil puts out!!)
FROM THE CECIL WHIG:
NORTH EAST - One game into the season it's obvious that No. 3 North East's change in philosophy will be beneficial this season, as the Indians' cruised past Elkton 7-1 in their home opener Wednesday.
North East juniors Nicole Dant and Kelly Riale were the primary goal scorers last year; both players would streak down the sideline as a teammate would send the ball in the air over the defense.
"We have a lot of talent," said Dant, who also scored two goals and added an assist. "We still have a ways to go, but we're getting better."
Riale opened the scoring off a feed from Dant, then returned the favor by assisting Dant to give North East a 2-0 lead.
In the second half, North East's superior talent took over as freshman Mandy Lester assisted Dant and Riale before scoring her first career goal midway through the period.
"The first goal was all Kelly," Dant said of her first-half score. "I just tapped it in. The second was all Mandy. The assist is everything."
The Pride would like to congratulate Nicole Dant, Cecil County Player of the Year!! Way to go Cole!!!!
Pride Congratulates Cecil All County Players
The Pride would like to congratulate Cecil County All-County players!!
Pride Welcomes New Player to South Penn Tournament
The Pride would like to welcome Kirsten Stallone, the Pride's newest addition. Kirsten is a sophomore player for Bo Manor. Referring to the Bo Manor soccer program, the Cecil Whig writes "the program got a jolt of relentless, full-tilt energy from Kirsten Stallone last year. The sophomore might be the fastest player in the county. Stallone can run all day and boasts enormous scoring potential".
Crystal makes both the Record and the Aegis. Both photos are from the Havre de Grace vs Aberdeen.

NORTH EAST VS BO MANOR
"A shutout is really nice since we started out the season a little rocky with our D," senior captain Katie Dant said. "We gave up a few goals at the beginning of the season, but the last two games have been shutouts so that's been pretty nice for us."
"To start off with a winning record early on this season was really nice because we weren't sure what we had," Katie Dant said. "It boosts our confidence a little bit.
"We're gelling really well this year, better than I expected."
Congratulations to Kerrie, this year's Captain of the Edgewood Varsity squad! Kerrie will be moving from defense to midfield for the Rams this season. The move has already paid off for the Rams as Kerrie scored against Havre de Grace, and had three assists. Great job Kerrie!!
NORTH EAST VS RISING SUN
North East led 4-2 midway through the second half, but Rising Sun pulled even with a late charge. Deanna Pierce scored from 22 yards out to cut the Indians' lead in half and Stephanie Settle tied the game on an assist from Angela Picking with 10 minutes to play. The Indians quickly regained composure. Dant led Riale beautifully with a through ball to the right sideline to set up a great scoring chance. "Kelly broke away and I sent her down the sideline," Dant said. "She just beat their defense with her speed." Riale attacked the goal and chipped a shot past Rising Sun goalkeeper Lauren Dixon for the game winner. "It's probably is the biggest goal I've ever scored," Riale said. "It was real important to play well. I though it was really good that we broke our record. We've never won on this field before." Rising Sun (1-1) understood containing the lightning quick duo presented a formidable challenge before the game. "I thought we had some decent speed on the outside, but we couldn't match up with them," Rising Sun coach Jim Jones said. "I think it caught us by surprise how quick they were. We talked about it before the game, but we didn't know they were that fast." North East took a 2-0 lead on goals by Riale and Dant, but Rising Sun countered to even the score. Angela Picking scored on an assist from Amy Roloson, and freshman Amanda Steen netted the equalizer on a pass from Picking. North East went ahead 3-2 just before the half when Liz Cramer scored on a Dant corner kick. Dant scored on a breakaway after a nice through pass from freshman Sam King to make it 4-2 early in the second half. Rising Sun's late rally, however, forced Riale's late heroics. "We lost a lot of key seniors from last year," Dant said. "This was a really big win for us. It's real nice." Amanda Crockett made 16 saves for the Indians (2-0).
