EDGEWATER, MD - South River High School won the Class 3A state championship in boys soccer on Saturday. The Capital reported that the Seahawks, ranked No. 3 in Maryland, defeated 9th-ranked Towson 5-1 at Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore.

South River overcame adversity to reach this point. The Seahawks had to forfeit their first four wins of the year after an ineligible player participated. 

The Capital said South River bounced back and secured its second state title, its first since 1987. 

"That second half, I think I blacked out for a little bit — I couldn’t believe we were up that much. They usually like to go to overtime or make it close," Seahawks coach Marlyn Argueta told The Capital "But today, they put a stamp on a great year and a great four years with this cycle. It just proved that we were the best team in the state."
