The girls’ soccer team from Archbishop Spalding High remained atop the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference Oct. 13, with a 1-0 victory over visiting Notre Dame Preparatory.
A goal by senior Katie Martin in the 15th minute held up for coach Ashly Kennedy’s Cavaliers, who improved to 9-2-2 overall and 6-1-1 in the A Conference.
The tie came in a 0-0 draw at Notre Dame Prep Sept. 22, as Martin produced the only goal in 180 minutes of action between the two schools in the regular season.
