Hawks Lose Battle Against CCBC Essex Knights

The College of Southern Maryland Hawks lost to the CCBC Essex Knights on September 17 by a score of 9-1.

The Knights got out to a quick start, scoring their first goal 30 seconds into the contest. Their offense remained red-hot in the first half, adding on five more goals before going into halftime with a 6-0 lead.

The Knights didn’t let the halftime break slow them down, as they scored their last three goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half.

Cassidy Barnette ensured the Hawks were not shutout with her goal in the 83rd minute. The sophomore defender took the ball from midfield and decided to go all the way by herself, sneaking her shot past the CCBC Essex goalie for her first goal of the season. 

CSM goalie Camille Cooley made several impressive saves throughout the game, ending the day with 18 to her name.

CSM will look to get their first tally in the win column on September 20 when they travel to Cecil College.


The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
