Severn satisfied with tie against No. 8 Notre Dame Prep

April 07, 1993|By Roch Eric Kubatko | Roch Eric Kubatko,Staff Writer

The players on Severn's girls lacrosse team were anxious to let the good times roll after seeing one ranked team after another roll over them.

No. 8 Notre Dame Prep presented the latest challenge to Severn, and the host Admirals gladly settled for a 9-9 tie in an Association of Independent Schools game.

Junior midfielder Emily Franey scored the equalizer for Severn with three minutes left, and each team's goalkeeper made a save in the last 30 seconds.

"Severn played very, very well. I have to give it to them. They outhustled us to the ground balls, and they connected on their passes," said Pirates coach Mary Bartel.

"I'd much rather come way with a win, but a tie's not that bad, either."

It looked wonderful to Severn, which was on a three-game losing streak and didn't expect a reprieve against the Pirates (3-0-1) -- a team that had walloped Institute of Notre Dame, 18-4, on Monday.

"A game like this really boosts up their confidence," said Severn coach Cathy Carper. "It was nice to see us hanging in there the entire game. This was a positive experience, rather than a disappointment."

For the Admirals (1-3-1), yesterday's game marked another showdown with yet another top 15 team. They opened the season with a 9-6 win over unranked Maryvale, but followed it up with losses to No. 2 Roland Park, 15-3, No. 10 John Carroll, 15-7, and No. 6 St. Mary's, 13-9.

The Admirals finished with a 33-23 advantage in shots yesterday.
