CHESTERTOWN, Md. – The Poolesville High School field hockey team took an early lead but couldn’t hold on against the relentless offense of Glenelg, suffering a 5-1 loss in the MPSSAA Class 2A Championship game at Washington College on Saturday.
Megan Taylor and Dannielle Baker each had a goal and two assists to lead the Gladiators to their third consecutive state title.
“I thought we gave it everything we had,” Poolesville coach Regina Grubb said. “I thought our defense played well. My goalkeeper [Madison Lamanna], it’s her first year at the varsity level and this is probably the best team that we’ve faced all year. I thought she had the stops, we just couldn’t clear the ball out at times.”
