Gators gain measure of revenge Perry Hall slips by Dulaney, 6-5

April 01, 1993|By Tara Finnegan | Tara Finnegan,Contributing Writer

In recent years, Perry Hall vs. Dulaney girls lacrosse matches have had basically the same outcome.

"Every year we have a one-goal game, and we usually have come out on the short end," Perry Hall coach Wendy Samuels said.

But yesterday's ending was different.

With the score tied at 5, junior attack Keri Folley scored with 45 seconds left in regulation to give Perry Hall a 6-5 win over Baltimore County 4A-3A rival Dulaney in the season opener for both teams.

The game originally was scheduled to be played at Perry Hall but was moved to Dulaney because of poor field conditions.

"We have a lot of stuff to work on," Dulaney coach Anita Noel said. "We weren't cutting to the ball and a lot of balls were thrown away."

Dulaney (0-1) trailed 5-3 with 6:30 left in regulation and rallied behind attacks Marilee Bosley and junior Aimee Vaughan.

Bosley scored at the 23:00 mark to bring the Lions within one. Forty-five seconds later, Vaughan scored unassisted to tie the score.

Perry Hall then won the faceoff with a minute remaining, and Folley picked up a botched pass in front of the goal and flipped it in for the win.

"The score was tied and I knew we needed the goal," Folley said. "We felt like we had a really good chance of winning."

After a sluggish first half for both teams, Dulaney jumped to a 2-1 lead 27 seconds into the second half on Vaughan's second goal of the game.

Perry Hall then went on to score three unanswered goals, as Erin Ward and Kerri Johnson combined efforts to give the Gators a 4-2 lead at the 13:55 mark.

Bosley scored unassisted with 16:56 left to bring the Lions within one, but Johnson scored her third goal at 18:30, giving the Gators a 5-3 edge.

Lori Johnson had 12 saves for Perry Hall, and sophomore Julie Easter 15 for Dulaney.

Dulaney led 1-0 in the first half with Vaughan scoring her first at the 14:00 mark.
