Archbishop Spalding senior midfielder Chelsea Allen was at the right place at the right time more than once in yesterday's showdown against host McDonogh.

Her two second-half goals, both coming off corner kicks, provided the No. 1 Cavaliers with the offense they needed in a 2-0 win over No. 3 McDonogh.

The defending Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference champions improve to 14-0-1 overall and 7-0-1 in league play, while McDonogh (12-4-2) drops to 6-2 in the conference.

The game featured intensity, high skills and a fast pace. The difference came on two set pieces with Allen putting away corner kicks in the 43rd and 69th minutes. Erica Page assisted on the first goal with Teresa Doyle serving up the second.

"It was really intense. We knew McDonogh would be one of the tougher games, so everybody was really excited coming in," said Allen, who will play at Wake Forest.

The Eagles got strong efforts from juniors Megan Gibbons, Colby Rhea and Gigi Mangione.
