Andie Aldave had a pretty impressive freshman year for mythical National champion McDonogh School.

The 2017 midfielder continued her ascent Saturday afternoon, earning MVP honors as Baltimore defeated Washington, 23-17, in the inaugural Maryland Crab Draw Underclass All-Star game at St. Paul’s School for Girls.

North Harford 2016 attack Maria Auth led all scorers with six goals for the Baltimore squad while UMBC commit and St. Paul’s 2015 Sara Moeller had four goals and two assists. North Hagerstown 2017 attack Natalie Karlen led Washington with four goals and an assist and earned team MVP honors.

Aldave recorded a hat trick along, two assists and won 12 draws as Baltimore led wire-to-wire. She said she initially wasn’t going to participate.

“I found out a lot of my McDonogh friends was doing it, it was a fun opportunity to keep your stick in the hand,” said Aldave. “It was a little hot, the halves were long, but we had an awesome time.”

The game was played under college rules with two 30-minute halves. Halftime, originally planned for 15 minutes, was shortened to less than 10 minutes as temperatures were above 90 degrees on the St. Paul’s School turf. The teams were split into regions to showcase the top players from talent-rich Maryland.

The heat didn’t bothered the Baltimore squad which raced out to 6-0 advantage with Penn State commit Auth providing a hat trick. Washington, which featured performers from the D.C. suburbs of Maryland, along with the Eastern Shore and western Maryland, climbed to within 12-9 late in the first half after an unassisted tally from Broadneck rising junior attack Brianna Harris.

Baltimore answered with three goals to end the first half, capped with Aldave finishing a pass from Hereford rising sophomore and Maryland commit Catie May. Baltimore accounted for the first two scores of the second half for its largest advantage at 17-9.

Aldave accounted for half of Baltimore’s 24 draw wins. During the spring, Aldave logged quality minutes for McDonogh, which claimed its sixth IAAM A Conference title and fifth straight undefeated season.

“We had to overcome a lot of obstacles with the streak, we had a huge target,” said Aldave. “I’ve always played with older friends so I wasn’t afraid going into McDonogh. It was such a good feeling being one of the 12 players on the best team in the country.”

Karlen garnered MVP honors for Washington. South River rising senior midfielder Madison Carter had a second half hat trick.

“The game showed everyone’s different skills and being able to adapt,” said Karlen.
