After a stunning 2-1 overtime victory over Oakdale in the Class 2A West regional championship game, the Walkersville girls soccer team will be making its first appearance in the state semifinals.

On this week’s Final Score podcast, Lions coach Paul Bryan tells host Greg Swatek all about his team’s surprising run and why it is playing its best at the right time of year. After being blown out by Oakdale during the regular season, how was he feeling heading into the regional final. How did he and the team react when Kasi Ogwulu scored the game-winning goal in overtime? What type of game does he expect against Fallston in Saturday’s state semifinal at River Hill? And why does he love coaching so much?

Plus, FNP sports writer John Cannon joins Greg to talk about the Lions’ surprising win, the rest of the state playoff picture for soccer and volleyball and the three regional semifinal matchups in football involving Linganore, Oakdale and Catoctin.

The Finals Score is presented by Players Fitness and Performance (PFP).
