Gators land at No. 14 and will face No. 4 Severna Park; No. 5 Wilde Lake to play for 3A title


It’s title week in girls soccer as state championship games will take place this week in all four classes at Loyola University. One of those teams playing for a title is No. 14 Perry Hall, the newest entry into the VSN Girls Soccer Top 20. The Gators have made a great post-season run to earn a chance to defend the 4A state crown it won last year. Perry Hall will meet No. 4 Severna Park, which moved up one spot this week, on Friday at Loyola.

Wilde Lake also moved up one spot this week from No. 6 to No. 5 after defeating No. 8 Chesapeake-AA in the 3A state semifinals. The Wildecats will face in Northern-Calvert in the 3A state final on Saturday at Loyola.

The rest of the Top remained in tact with IAAM A powers McDonogh, Archbishop Spalding and Mercy, with their seasons’ complete, holding down spots No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
