McDonogh beats St. Mary's, 2-1, on Kimberling's 2nd-half goal

October 24, 1992|By Roch Eric Kubatko | Roch Eric Kubatko,Staff Writer

McDonogh continued its recent hex over St. Mary's yesterday with a 2-1 victory in a Catholic League A Division game.

Senior striker Ann Kimberling scored less than two minutes into the second half, breaking a 1-1 tie and giving the co-No. 6 Eagles (13-2-1, 7-1-1) their second win over No. 10 St. Mary's (6-3-3, 3-3-3) this season.

Last year, the Saints defeated McDonogh twice during the regular season, but were upset by the Eagles, 3-2, in a shootout in the Catholic League tournament semifinals. And McDonogh rallied for two second-half goals to prevail, 2-1, earlier this month.

"I think you see a program on the rise," said Eagles co-coach Maurice Boylan. "St. Mary's has been a dominant team in the league for years. They get excellent players from the Severna Park area and they're well-coached. But we're winning a few games and there's an excitement on campus about this team."

Kimberling's decisive shot, which was set up by a pass from Debra Hantman, glanced off the hand of St. Mary's keeper Erin Hon and into the net. McDonogh continued to control the ball after that, leaving the Saints with no chance to tie the game.

St. Mary's took a 1-0 lead 12 minutes into the game when Tricia Monmaney lofted a pass from midfield to a streaking Melissa Holmes, who tapped the ball past McDonogh keeper Sarah Manekin. It was Holmes' fifth goal of the year, and her second against the Eagles.

"The thing I was most impressed with was, after that ball went into the goal, we ran after the ball, grabbed it, put it back at midfield, and they were ready to go again," Boylan said. "It didn't faze them. The old McDonogh team from last year would have been bummed out. But that kind of fired us up."

The Eagles were denied repeatedly in the first half, until Debbie Johnson gathered a loose ball and scored from about 10 yards out to tie the game at 1-1.
