Emily Banes at first laughed at the question. Then she owned up to it. She is stubborn. It is an adjective that usually carries some baggage, but for the senior forward on the Towson women's soccer team, it is a recipe for success. Banes' stubbornness has contributed to why she has already surpassed her career high with 28 points, which is tied for sixth in Division I. It has helped her score a career-best 11 goals, which is tied for 14th in the country. And it has allowed her to post a career-high six assists, which is the most by a Tigers player since 2011.

The attention increases at game time, starting with the two defenders who are often assigned to mark her. And then Cislo gets the ball. The opposing coach cringes.

Broadneck soccer star Tyler Gabarra wins a ball in the offensive third, sends it wide to a teammate and dashes to goal. Successfully behind the defense, he collects the return pass and gets to work. A quick cut back to his right foot and then an extra touch to get past a sliding defender gives him just enough space to slip a shot under the drawn out goalkeeper. Gabarra's goal - perfectly placed inside the near post - came with seven minutes left to give the Bruins a 1-0 win over Annapolis this month.
