Centennial, Hammond Top All-county Team

They Place Four Girls Each On Soccer Squad

December 01, 1991|By Rick Belz | Rick Belz,Staff writer

Centennial and Hammond, two teams that won state championships, dominate The Howard County Sun's All-County girls soccer team with four first-team selections each.

Hammond's sweeper, senior Jackie Rieschick, who led the Bears to a 15-1 season and the state Class 2A/1A title, is the Player of the Year.

Centennial's Rick Pizarro, who led the Class 4A/3A Eagles to a 16-0 season and their first state title, is Coach of the Year.

Forwards

Samantha Andersch of Hammond again stood out as one of the league's premier players.

The highly skilled junior, who also was a first-team selection last year, scored 18 goals and made a league-leading 17 assists.

In only one of Hammond's 16 games did she fail to score or get an assist. She scored more than one goal four times. Herthree-year career totals are 46 goals and 42 assists.

Vicky Bruntof Centennial led her undefeated team in scoring with 16 goals and eight assists. The junior scored the lone goal against Westminster on a 30-yard shot.

"She has amazing speed and could outrun other people while she was dribbling the ball," Pizarro said. "She also has a dynamite right foot."

Kisha Jett of Hammond was probably the fastest player in the state and used that speed to score a league-leading 26 goals.

Eight times the sophomore scored two or more goals, including four in one half against arch-rival Oakland Mills in a 4-3 Bears' victory. She was held scoreless only three times.

"She was a go-getter and extremely aggressive around the goal," Bears coach Dave Guetler said.

Halfbacks

Kacy Williams of Hammond was an outstanding playmaker who controlled the midfield and made Hammond's high-scoring offense tick.

The sophomore scored 10 goals and made 12 assists, and had an assist or goal in every game but two.

"She is a tremendous player, a leader who works as hard in practice as she does in games," Guetler said.

Natalie Rich of Centennial was the top player in the league at winning head balls, a tough tackler and a skilled dribbler who skillfully set up her strikers. The junior had nine goals and four assists.

Shannon Bagrosky of Howard made first-team All-County for the second straight year by scoring 15 goals and adding two assists.

The sophomore playmaker was frequently double-teamed and sometimes triple-teamed.

Corina Riismandel of Centennial was a senior co-captain who pushed the Eagles' high-scoring offense.

A tough, intelligent player, she had six goals and four assists.

Fullbacks

Camille Powell of Howard, a junior sweeper, repeats as a first-team All-County selection.

"Teams like to keep the ball away from her," coach Jane Sherman said. "And she was instrumental in getting the ball into position for our offense to score."

Jamie Fontaineof Centennial was one of the league's fiercest competitors, and led a defense that allowed only 10 goals all season.

The sophomore usually marked the other team's best offensive player. Against Hammond, she marked Andersch and held her scoreless. It was the only game all season that Andersch didn't contribute a goal or an assist and it wasHammond's only loss.

Goalkeeper

Krista Fulton of Howard made first-team All-County for the third straight year. The senior made 85 saves on 96 shots and had three shutouts.

"She's a fantastic player, a good leader and has no weaknesses as a goalie," Sherman said.

Also an excellent student, Fulton is being recruited by Ivy League schools.
