Running back Ben Beatty scored touchdowns on runs of 5 and 17 yards.

Wildcats coach Mike Vladich applauded the offensive-line play of Andre Garland, James Dillard, Lenny Holmes, Luke Coleman, Kevin Ribblett and Glen Vladich and the defensive efforts of Coleman, Dillard, Rexrode, Brian Mierzeski, Kevin Griffith, Jason Mierzeski, Sean Taylor, Damon Scott and Scott Herrell.

Youth soccer

* 1982 boys -- The St. Jane Devils played the Severna Park Green Hornets to a 1-1 tie last week in an Anne Arundel Youth Soccer League Division 2A matchup.

The Devils' lone goal came midway through the first half when left wing Doug Murphy Jr. scored on a feed from Matt Wanner. The Devils applied heavy pressure throughout the first half with 10 shots on goal.

Severna Park's offense scored just before the half but was thwarted in its efforts thereafter by the defense of Joe White, Matt Naylor, Tom Kish, James Khoui and Mike McCauley.

The Devils took on an undefeated Jessup-Province Youth Organization team Sunday in the Cape St. Claire Tournament and dealt JPYO its first loss of the season, 4-0.

Joe White scored the first goal, unassisted, followed by two goals from Murphy on assists from Brian Giles and Jason Ragolio. Wanner scored the fourth goal on a solo shot and had a fifth goal called back by the officials.

St. Jane improved to 2-0 in the tournament by defeating the Fort Meade Intra Stars, 2-0, Tuesday night.

* 15-and-under girls -- The Severna Park Kickers boosted their overall record to 8-2 with a 2-1 win over Washington Area Girls Soccer League foe Columbia Lazers at Waugh Chapel Field.

Krissy Kohlhepp (Chesapeake) and Ruth Wilson (Arundel) scored for the winners, and Beth Ann Houck (Severna Park) and Jill Jones (Arundel) had assists.

Karri Christian (Old Mill) collected two saves before she suffered an injury. Marcia LaVin (Arundel) played the rest of the game despite an injury and made five saves.

The Kickers, who outshot Columbia 16-7, will participate in this weekend's Brooklyn Park Tournament.

* 19-and-under girls -- Despite a late rally, the Severna Park Alliance came up short against the defending Maryland State Cup champion Columbia Crusaders, 4-3, Sunday at Kinder Park.

Michelle Salmon (Old Mill), Kathleen Fort (Perry Hall) and Shelly Seivert (Severna Park) each scored in a losing cause, and Mo McDonough (St. Mary's) and Seivert each had an assist. Goalie Erin Hon (St. Mary's) had 10 saves for Severna Park, who ended their season at 5-8-1 overall and 1-6 in the Washington Area Girls Soccer League.

"I think we dominated in the second half. We had three or four shots bounce off the pole," said Alliance coach Tom Ehart. "We've been very unlucky all year. We've lost four games by one goal, and the other two by two. But I'm not too worried; this will get us ready for the spring season.

* 10-and-under girls -- The Cape St. Claire Cougars fell to 0-6-3 in Saturday's 7-0 loss to Severna Park in a county league Division III contest.

Cougars standouts included fullbacks Brynn Posson and Nianque Early, midfielders Shelley Peavey and Katie Johnson, and forwards Lisa Johnson, Minka Early, Kate Preston and Sundee Cogar.

The Cougars will play host to the Mountain Road Cougars at 7 tonight in the opening round of the Cape St. Claire tournament at Broadneck Park.
