Senior soccer goalkeeper John Engel finally fulfilled a dream on Oct. 15 during a 2-1 victory over Catoctin in a Monocacy Valley League game.

Engel was given the opportunity by coach Granville Hibberd to try a penalty kick, and Engel made the shot to tie the game 1-1 with 10 minutes left.

"I always wanted to do it," said Engel. "So I asked and Coach Hibberd let me try it. I guess the fact that we missed a penalty kick earlier in the game helped me get the chance."

The Eagles then got what proved to be the winning goal with four minutes left on a shot by Mike Locklear from 6 yards out.


Michelle Jolly has been an instant hit as a first-year coach for the Liberty girls junior varsity soccer team.

Jolly had the Lions unbeaten (9-0-1) through the first 10 games of the season, including a 10-0 romp over Howard High from the soccer hotbed of Howard County.

Jolly's team also has defeated South Carroll, 7-1, and shut out Westminster, 4-0. The tie came against Glenelg, 2-2.

Sophomore forward Kerry Adams (12 goals) and freshman forward Melissa Martin (11 goals) are the top players.

Other top JV players are midfielders Michelle Clawson, Megan Dunham and Laurie Katz; goalkeeper Angie Primavera, sweeper Nikki Jones, stopper Jenny McDowell and forward Kelly Patterson.

North Carroll

The Panthers' varsity girls soccer team is going to the state 2A-1A tournament with a 7-3-2 record, but it still is steaming a little over its inability to beat Carroll County and Central Maryland Conference champion South Carroll in two tries.

"Our girls would like another shot at South Carroll," said coach Phil Myers. "They believe they should have at least won one of the two games against them."

Before South Carroll (10-1-1) lost its final regular-season game to Westminster, 1-0, in overtime Thursday night, North Carroll had provided the Cavaliers with their only headache, a 3-3 tie.

In that game, North Carroll blew a 2-0 lead.

South Carroll is headed for the state 4A-3A tournament, making it impossible for North Carroll to meet the Cavs again.

Six boys and four girls from the Westminster varsity cross country teams have been chosen to the All Central Maryland Conference team.

The boys making the top CMC squad are Jim Holford, Chris Zendgraft, Matt Soper, Shawn Donovan, Jim Zoulias and Mark Bowen.

The girls on the All-CMC team are Joy Bullock, Jen Binford, Amy Elwell and Emily Jones.

One of the Westminster runners missing from the All-CMC boys team is senior Dion Stanton who had a chance to become the first boy from Westminster to make All-Conference four times.

Stanton ran into eligibility problems this season, limiting him to two meets and keeping him off the all-conference squad.

Stanton was back last week for the CMC championships but had to run in the junior varsity meet. His JV time was good enough to place him fifth in the varsity meet.

That showing put him back at the No. 3 spot on the varsity for the Carroll County championship meet this Friday and the remainder of the season.
