Com­ing off con­sec­u­tive In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion of Maryland B Con­fer­ence championships, St. Mary’s has reestab­lished it­self as a girls soc­cer force. But with sev­eral tal­ented new teams in the B con­fer­ence, a new coach and a trans­formed ap­proach, the reg­u­lar sea­son has been a work in progress.

Sarah DeWitt, Chloe Byrne and a co­he­sive de­fen­sive unit are prov­ing that, with two weeks to go in the reg­u­lar sea­son, the Saints are ready for a play­off push.

DeWitt and Byrne scored roughly three min­utes apart mid­way through the first half, while Grace Moore led a back line that ab­sorbed Mary­vale’s of­fen­sive at­tack as St. Mary’s shut out the vis­it­ing Li­ons, 2-0.

“Ev­ery­body needs to be part of the goals that we score,” St. Mary’s coach Sarah Molina said. “We had a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties to put the ball away, but I am good with two goals and I am good with the shutout.”

Although St. Mary’s (7-5-1) con­trolled the ball al­most from the out­set, the Saints were un­able to put a shot on goal un­til DeWitt’s tally 13 min­utes in. A failed clear by Mary­vale (4-8-2) de­flected to DeWitt, the Saints’ lead­ing scorer. She fin­ished into the far left cor­ner, past the out­stretched arms of Li­ons goal­keeper De­laney Page (eight saves). Byrne, a re­turn­ing All-Con­fer­ence per­former, added to the lead less than three min­utes later.

NO. 5 BEL AIR 4, JOHN CAR­ROLL 3, OT: Lexi Krae­mer had a hat trick to lift the host Bob­cats (7-3-1) over the vis­it­ing Pa­tri­ots (2-7). St. Mary’s Hailee Mur­phy, left, chases after Mary­vale’s Maria Aiello. Sarah DeWitt and Chloe Byrne scored for the Saints in their 2-0 win over the vis­it­ing Li­ons.

John Car­roll goalie El­lie Marts made a game-high 22 saves.

GLENELG COUN­TRY 2, SE­TON KEOUGH 2, 2OT: Alisha Ne­tus and Lind­sey Mar­shall each scored for the vis­it­ing Dragons (4-3-1, 4-3-1 IAAM B Con­fer­ence), who played to a draw with the Ga­tors (2-5-1, 2-4-1).
