Allison Valentino and Lara Dustin each scored five goals, leading Atholton (1-3) past Joppatowne, 15-7, yesterday in the consolation game of the Arundel spring girls lacrosse tournament.

Atholton, missing four key players away for the Easter holiday, rebounded from a 9-8 loss to Mount de Sales in Thursday's first round.

Dustin added two assists and teammate Melissa Hill contributed two goals. Atholton goalkeeper Tonya Monti made 16 saves.

Joppatowne (1-3), which lost, 15-3, to Arundel in a first-round contest Thursday, built a 4-2 lead within the first eight minutes behind goals by Crystal Carr, Jackie Bass, Renee Cummings and Jen Aquia.

But the Raiders answered with two scores late in the first half from Dustin to make it 4-4 at intermission. The second half was a different story.

Atholton scored seven goals -- two by Dustin -- within the first seven minutes of the second half to put the game out of reach.

"They were going to the ball more aggressively and really turned it around in the second half," Atholton coach Carol Stevens said. "They were spreading out and playing a good attack."

Joppatowne's Karen Lang made 15 saves.

The championship game between Arundel and Mount de Sales was postponed because of heavy rain and poor field conditions.

Referees halted play less than five minutes after the game started with Mount de Sales leading 1-0 on a goal by sophomore midfielder Lisa Banbury.

L No makeup date is set for the game, which will be restarted.
