Northwestern of P.G. too fast for Dulaney, 2-0

November 07, 1992|By Mike Jefferson | Mike Jefferson,Contributing Writer

Dulaney soccer coach Craig Laferty and his players expected to face a speedy Northwestern High team in yesterday's Class 4A, Region II final.

But even an aggressive, tightly packed Dulaney defense proved no match for Northwestern's speedy front line.

Dulaney (10-2-1), ranked 15th, lost the regional championship, 2-0, on a muddy Northwestern field in Prince George's County.

Northwestern advances to the state finals next weekend for the first time since 1972.

Kanteah, Nyenforh and Prince Peters -- brothers playing offense for Northwestern (12-0-1) -- outran Dulaney fullbacks Dan Sherwood, Will Keible, Tim Speno, Dan Zakai and Anthony Baikauskas.

"Speed was the difference in the game," Laferty said. "I thought we could maybe pick up a half a step on them in the slop, but they are just so quick."

It was scoreless until the 39-minute mark, when Nyenforh Peters passed a roller to Kanteah Peters, who made a sharp cut from the left of the goal and put the ball past Dulaney keeper Mike Hohl (10 saves).

Northwestern, which switched fields often and pushed the ball outside, scored again at the 19:18 mark. Kanteah Peters, crashing the goal from the left side, converted a follow shot to make it 2-0.
