The midfield composed of Erin Hon and Kristen Buckley of St. Mary's and Natalie Bell and Amanda Kopchinski of Old Mill combined to set up the offense, played sound defense and contributed key goals.

Also playing well for the Severna Park defense that recorded two shutouts and allowed only two goals in the four tournament games were fullbacks Melissa Mitchell, Jacqui Saunders, Lauren Spears and Mary Babington and goalkeeper Nicki Trumpler.
