The Raiders may experience other high points in their varsity field hockey season, but their first victory over Liberty will rank near the top.

Nikki Auclair, the team's leading scorer, scored the game-winner in double overtime, giving Liberty its first loss of the season.

The Raiders have a 2-1-1 out-of-county record and have allowed two goals. Joy Gilbert, Katie Walter, Michelle Zick and Kim Gaeta and goalkeeper Agatha Davis provided that defense.


Any way you score it, the Eagles' golf team shot the best cumulative four-man round by a county team Thursday. And it did it under pressure, beating Mount Hebron to tie the Vikings for first place.

All four Eagles golfers, Matt Lynch (42), Dave Allocco (41), Jeff Smith (41) and Dave Nettelbladt (40), not only broke 40, but under the modified Stableford scoring system that awards three points for par, two points for bogey and one point for double bogey, each scored in the low 20s for a total of 88 points.

"That's the highest score ever," said Mo Dutterer, Centennial's coach for the past 18 years.

Centennial recently finished fourth in the District V tournament, so the entire foursome qualified for the state tournament, Oct. 29-30. The top four teams qualified.

Lynch shot 84 in the District tourney. Only Andy Young of Mount Hebron, who shot 80, topped him among county golfers.


The Gladiators are ecstatic about their first golf victory in five years over Centennial Tuesday, 76-80.

Centennial, shooting for its fifth straight county title, held first place at the time, but the Eagles' second loss knocked them out of first temporarily. Glenelg is third with a 14-4 record. Mount Hebron, which lost to Centennial Thursday, is tied for first.

Freshman Brock King led Glenelg's scoring with 23 points, followed by senior Sean Merson with 21, sophomore Andrea Bedingfield with 18 and sophomore Mark Thompson with 18. Merson and Bedingfield have qualified for the state tournament.


The Bears' field hockey team still is talking about Amber Duckworth's flick Tuesday -- Hammond's first goal in a 3-1 victory over Keough.

"She's practiced and practiced as our stroke person and she came through beautifully," coach Gay Petrlik said.

Duckworth scored a second goal in that game, and Alicia Paul scored on a dodge run, as the Bears pushed their record to 2-1. The loss was 1-0 to Middletown in overtime.


Boys soccer coach Rudy Storch said he was feeling pretty low after Thomas Stone clobbered Howard, 9-2.

"But you know, that game may make our season," Storch said. "I've never coached a team that lost that badly before, and the kids were really angry and have been working harder than ever.

"I never realized what a positive result something like that can have on a team."

Mount Hebron

The girls lacrosse team has something special to look forward to next spring.

Coach P. J. Kesmodel has received an invitation for the Vikings to join Roland Park Country School as one of two Maryland representatives in a North-South girls lacrosse tournament April 17 at Roland Park.

Mount Hebron was 18-0 last year and Roland Park was 14-0. They will face two top teams from Downingtown, Pa., and Unionville, Pa.

"There will be a lot of prestige on the line," Kesmodel said.

Oakland Mills

Cross country coach Steve Carnahan was happy to see his teams cart home a bunch of trophies and medals from the Arundel Invitational last weekend.

"We got our money's worth," he said.

The varsity boys team finished second, led by third-place finisher Greg Curtis, who ran 17 minutes, 27 seconds. Atholton's Bryan Townsend was the winner in 17:09.

The Scorpions girls varsity finished fourth behind three ranked teams, Loch Raven, Atholton and Mount de Sales.

Oakland Mills also won the junior varsity division and finished second in the novice division.

Wilde Lake

In its first three games, the girls soccer team at Wilde Lake scored a total of three goals and lost two of the three contests.

But against Joppatowne (6-1) and IND (3-0) recently, the Wildecats woke up to score nine goals.

Nat Froman led the way with four. Steph Taddeo scored two goals and had three assists. Lindsay Waxler scored three goals. That's more like the Wilde Lake team that made it to the state final last season.
