It's a Draw
South River freshman Sarah Pfundstein's first varsity goal with 7 minutes 19 seconds remaining prevented fourth-ranked Severna Park from posting its first victory over the visiting Seahawks in six years as the teams played to a 1-1 tie in an Anne Arundel girls' soccer game.
Severna Park (2-0-2 overall, 1-0-1 league) took a 1-0 lead with 19:44 left on a goal by junior forward Emily Zido.
"I'll take that tie against Severna Park because we played with passion when we needed to," said South River Coach Mike Aman, whose team is 1-1-2, 0-0-1. . . .
