November 07, 2007|By Stefen Lovelace | Stefen Lovelace,SUN REPORTER

The No. 11 Eastern Tech and No. 14 Loch Raven girls soccer teams have become accustomed to seeing each other.

The teams played once in the regular season, a 1-1 tie. They saw each other in the Baltimore County championship, with Eastern Tech winning, 3-1.

Last night, they played for the Class 2A North regional title and a birth into the state semifinals. Eastern Tech (13-2-1) controlled the midfield and won, 1-0.

"This year, it was our goal to get [the regional] title back and to get into the state tournament," Mavericks coach Kim Williams said. "Tonight's game was definitely the toughest. [Loch Raven] really played hard, but luckily, we persevered."

With 12 minutes left in the first half, Eastern Tech's Sarah Holmes fielded a pass from Samantha Pinder 3 yards from the net and scored.

"It's the greatest feeling in the world," Holmes said. "It's just amazing."

Loch Raven (10-6-2) didn't convert on two key opportunities in the second half, one in front of the net and another on a corner kick.

Eastern Tech's next opponent will be the winner of the Parkside/Kent Island game in the 2A East regional final.
