Severna Park Pair Shines

Severna Park's senior forward duo of Holly Noga and Erin Dubina formed one of the top offensive duos in Maryland girls soccer last season. It appears they will do so again this season. Just ask Good Counsel.

Dubina assisted Noga for the game's only goal 10 minutes into the second half as Severna Park ended Good Counsel's 26-game unbeaten streak, 1-0, in a non-district contest in Wheaton.

Good Counsel finished last season No. 1, recording its first undefeated season in school history with a 22-0-3 record. Severna Park also had a strong year, losing to Wootton in the Maryland 4A State final, 2-1, and finished 18-2-0.

Noga scored 17 goals last season for the Anne Arundel County school, while Dubina had 16 goals in her freshman campaign.

"It was a through ball to Erin Dubina and Holly Noga up front and Erin dished the ball real nice to Holly and she put in the far post," Severna Park Coach Chuck Seivert said.

Junior goalkeeper Kerry York had eight saves for the shutout.
