Lightning got in the way of Notre Dame Prep's bid to win a fourth straight Association of Independent Schools A Division girls winter soccer title yesterday.
After beating McDonogh (10-1-1) three years in a row in the title game, the Pirates (9-0-1) had to settle for a 2-2 tie after a lightning bolt struck nearby, interrupting the game before the overtime period could begin. The game began about 10 minutes late after both teams got caught in a traffic jam on the road to the Park School.
"I didn't like the idea of co-champs," said McDonogh coach Ted Scocos. "It's like kissing your sister. It's a semisweet situation. But they had won the last three, so I guess we have to feel better than they do."
