It was a classic title game as Perry Hall Girls Soccer captured their second straight 4A state championship. The Gators beat Severna Park in penalty kicks (4 to 3) after the game was tied 0-0 after regulation and two overtimes on Friday night at Loyola University.
The game was still not decided after the first round of penalty kicks as both teams were tied 3 to 3 after the first five kicks. The game went into extra penalty kicks. Severna Park missed their sixth kick and Senior Erin Marciszewski scored on Perry Hall’s sixth penalty kick for the win and state title.
Aya Neal, Caroline Warns and Caroline Rosenthal scored on their penalty kicks.
The Gators were led this season by Junior Goalie Brenna Ellenberger, who had a shutout in regulation and overtime in the title game.
Marciszewski, Neal, Warns and Rosenthal were named to the Baltimore County Senior All Star Game along with Mackenzie Click and Zaida Holloway. Matt Smoot is the team coach.
Perry Hall finishes with a state title and a record of 13-4. Severna Park was in its first state title game since 2011 and was looking for their first state title since 2003.
