Key extends B-CC but loses game, coach Greater Grace wins Christian soccer title


October 31, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

No. 4-ranked Francis Scott Key lost, 1-0, yesterday to state field hockey powerhouse Bethesda-Chevy Chase, and then the Eagles' coach of seven years, Mindi Wagner, announced she was stepping down.

"These players did everything I asked of them, and more," said Wagner, whose teams won a state title in 1993 and were second statewide in 1996.

"This was my most satisfying season because of the girls and the record [11-2-1]. It's time for a change, and my priorities are different."

Mary Havell scored for B-CC (12-1) in the Class 2A West playoff opener. B-CC has won or shared five state titles in the last six years, but Key proved to be a worthy challenger this time, after losing to the Montgomery County team last year, 5-0.

Visiting B-CC dominated the first half yesterday, keeping Key shotless. But the Eagles responded in the second half, playing more in their offensive end, getting off four shots, and having several scoring chances.
