— ACCIDENT — Brooke Fink collected her third straight shutout and her seventh over the last eight games to lift Northern over Southern 2-0 during the Maryland 1A West Section I finals Thursday at Northern High School.

The Huskies (13-2-1) will play Smithsburg Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the West Region Finals. Southern ends the season 7-6-2.

Fink stopped all eight shots launched her way by the Rams and played with a lead most of the evening after Amanda Paape scored six minutes in on an assist from Emily Fratz. Tiffany Warnick was assisted by freshman Jinny Warn with 16:12 left in the opening half to double the Northern lead.

Fink has now shutout her opponents on 10 occasions.

“I’m really proud of the way the girls played. Especially the defense,” said Northern Head Coach Shawn Nicklin. “Brooke had a heck of day for us in goal and Madi Gallagher was outstanding in the midfield.”
