Julie Lynch, Spar­rows Point, soc­cer

Baltimore Sun - - VARSITY -

The sopho­more mid­fielder saved her best for last in lead­ing the No. 2 Point­ers (17-1) to their fourth straight Class 1A state cham­pi­onship Nov. 19 — a 2-1 come-from-be­hind vic­tory against No. 7 Pat­ter­son Mill. Af­ter scor­ing the ty­ing goal mid­way through the sec­ond half, Lynch con­verted a penalty kick with 8:11 left to lift Spar­rows Point to vic­tory. It’s the sec­ond straight year the stand­out has scored the win­ning goal in the state cham­pi­onship. Last year, she scored in the game’s first minute as the Point­ers claimed a 2-0 win over the Huskies. This year, Lynch fin­ished with 18 goals and 12 as­sists, giv­ing her 34 goals and 24 as­sists in her first two sea­sons. Lynch showed skill and poise in scor­ing the two goals against Pat­ter­son Mill in this year’s ti­tle game. Just be­fore the mid­way point of the sec­ond half, she scored from 30 yards out to get the game tied and then later found the lower-right cor­ner on the penalty kick to put Spar­rows Point ahead for the first time at 2-1.
