Northwest Girls Beat Quince Orchard to Advance in Playoffs
The Lady Jags advanced have advanced in the regional playoffs after defeating Quince Orchard 2-1 in the Jags’ first game of the 2015 playoffs on Tuesday night at Northwest.
The victory propels the 9-4-1 Jaguars to a Friday night matchup against 8-4 Wootton, which will take place at Gaithersburg High School. Wootton defeated Clarksburg 4-2 last night to earn their birth to the regional semi-finals.
Northwest played a very controlled game on Tuesday night to earn the win. The Lady Jags controlled possession for most of the game allowing few scoring opportunities for QO’s fleet-footed sophomore Beth Ellinport, who was a danger to score almost every time she touched the ball. However, Northwest defenders Brooke Wallmark, Cailynn Adelman, and Emmy Abdullah, kept Ellinport from getting more than a handful of good looks at the goal.
