Prep Charter, Shipley win boys' soccer titles

Prep Charter earned a couple of firsts Tuesday with a 2-1 soccer win over Masterman at Northeast. It was the Huskies’ first Public League Class AA soccer championship in their first title appearance. It was a come-from-behind one, as George Eastwood and Jude Kpollie scored after spotting the Blue Dragons (3-8) a 1-0 second-half lead. Eastwood, a freshman forward, tied the game with 15 minutes left and eight minutes later crossed a pass to Kpollie, who found the range from a spot six yards out in front of the Masterman net. The win lifted the Huskies (11-2-2), regular-season champions of the league’s Division B, into the District 12 Class AA title game against Catholic League representative Kennedy-Kenrick Thursday at 3 p.m. Friends Schools Shipley needed a double-overtime session and a 4-3 advantage in penalty kicks to earn the league title against visiting Germantown Friends. The schools finished in a scoreless tie after regulation and two overtimes, and then Shipley got successful penalty kicks from Zach Arch, twins Mike and Geoff Stewart, and John McCann. Shipley goalie Nick Irvine had eight saves in the game, but none bigger than the penalty kicks in the shoot-out session. The Gators finished 15-2-1.
