Senior Darren Mallinson tapped in a loose ball with 3 minutes, 18 seconds left, and visiting and No. 5 Severna Park edged No. 4 North County, 1-0, in an Anne Arundel County Class 4A boys soccer game yesterday.
The two teams entered the game unbeaten (6-0) in county play. North County (10-1 overall), a first-year school created by the merger of Andover and Brooklyn Park, still can secure the top seeding in the upcoming Class 4A, Region IV playoffs with a win today over Chesapeake.
