COLLEGE PARK, Md. — A year after capturing its fist state title in a tense one-run battle with Chesapeake under the lights at Robert E.

Girls Volleyball Playoffs: Sherwood 3, Walter Johnson 1

Walter Johnson won the next two points before falling behind by as many as 15 on its way to losing the set by 12.

The Wildcats were much more competitive in a second set that featured eight ties and three lead changes before Sherwood ultimately prevailed, 25-21. Walter Johnson took the third set, 25-18, and seemed poised to give the two-time defending state champions one of their toughest tests of the season.

The Warriors returned to form early in the fourth set, though, winning eight consecutive points on Maddie Moyer’s serve to take an 11-2 lead on their way to a 25-12 victory and a third straight trip to the state final.

ROCKVILLE, Md. — The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School girls soccer team was locked in a scoreless tie in its MPSSAA Class 4A semifinal matchup with Sherwood through regulation time and two periods of overtime at Richard Montgomery High School on Saturday, but Denali Minnick’s goal in the sixth round of the penalty kick shootout gave the Barons the win and sent them back to the state championship game.

But Zoe Mesirow scored for B-CC to lead off the fifth round and Barons goalkeeper Angela White made a diving stop on Kelly Flamand’s attempt to send the shootout to round six.

After Sherwood goalkeeper Nikki Steiner couldn’t stop Minnick’s shot leading off the sixth round, Christina Romas sent her attempt wide to give B-CC the victory.
