The Potomac State Women’s Soccer Team signed two of the best soccer players in Berkeley’s Spring High School’s history, Sarah Allman and Rachael Canterbury. The Berkeley Spring’s Girls Head Coach, Jamie Chenoweth was generous with his praise for both girls. “They are two of the better players our program has produced.” Allman one of the region’s top scorers has received many honors. Chief among them is being co-holder of the Berkeley Springs girl’s single season scoring record of 28 goals.

Allman had numerous multi-goal games this season. Coach Sprouse added, “Sarah has the heart and soul of a striker. She’ll do anything to score. I’m not sure I’ve seen this level of desire for scoring in all my years of coaching. Coach Chenoweth provided some excellent video that really highlighted Sarah’s incredible effort.”

Canterbury was the unsung hero of the Indian offense. She scored several goals of her own, but her chief duty was to feed Allman with passes that provided her scoring opportunities. That duty she did to near perfection. Canterbury had numerous assists and is an aggressive opponent. “Rachel biggest contributions were her assists and defense. She is a midfielder who is strong on offense, but transitions well to play defense. In soccer we call that playing both sides of the ball and is a must in the college game,” remarked Coach Sprouse.

Sprouse continued, “We have here two very good soccer players. However, as good as they are, what I like most about them is their attitudes and character. I see them helping the team on and off the field significantly.”
