Coming off two straight losses, the Chesapeake-AA girls soccer team was in dire need of finding something positive to help return to form.

It came in the second half yesterday at No. 15 Arundel.

Faster to the ball and precise in the penalty box, the Cougars scored three times to come away with a 3-0 win that handed the Wildcats their first loss of the season.

Junior Kristen Milligan ended the scoreless tie with a header off a corner kick from Amanda Spinnenweber early in the half, and Ashley Stocks and Brooke Owen added the other goals as the Cougars improved to 7-3 overall and 5-2 in Anne Arundel. The Wildcats (7-1) are now 6-1 in the league.

"We needed this bad and I didn't know what to expect," said Chesapeake coach Jerry McBee, whose Cougars lost in the final minute against Broadneck on Friday before falling, 4-1, at the Institute of Notre Dame earlier in the week. "The best defense is a good offense and we just said to get it down there."
