Francis Scott Key senior midfielder Erin Murphey had had enough.After seeing the Eagles dominate visiting Catoctin for the first 29 minutes of yesterday's girls soccer match only to come up empty, Murphey took matters into her own hands -- or rather her own right foot.Murphey dribbled past two Catoctin defenders and sent a hard shot past Catoctin goalie Shannon Warner to give the Eagles a 1-goal lead with 10:40 left in the first half.It was a lead the Eagles never relinquished, as they went on to post a 2-1 win and avenge an earlier loss to their Washington County rival.

There are so many things to like about Erin Murphey's basketball game.The Western Maryland College point guard is a tenacious defender with the quickness to harass any opposing guard. A similar agility goes well with her ball-handling skills, enabling her to get through any press.It doesn't stop there. She loves the fact she has so many choices.

Francis Scott Key senior guard Erin Murphey began playing basketball her freshman year.There were no recreation leagues before that, not a basketball in sight at the Murphey household, and she will tell you she didn't really like the sport all that much back then.A naturally gifted athlete (she also is a standout in soccer and softball), basketball was her only option in the winter and she made the most out of her four years playing at Key.It culminated this season, when Murphey helped lead the Eagles to the region championship -- their first playoff appearance since the 1990 season.
