April 29, 1993|By Tom Worgo | Tom Worgo,Contributing Writer

No. 1 Mount Hebron (11-0) scored four unanswered goals to open the second half en route to a 13-9 girls lacrosse victory against No. 7 St. Mary's yesterday at Weems Whalen Field in Annapolis.

The Vikings pushed their winning streak to 29. Mount Hebron's last loss was to Loch Raven in the 1991 state semifinals.

"We were bringing the ball down and turning it over in the first half," Mount Hebron coach P. J. Kesmodel said of yesterday's game. "We rushed our passing, and we tried to create something when there was nothing. But we settled down and ran our offense."

Three players accounted for the Vikings' scoring. Cathy Nelson had five goals, and All-Metro midfielder Lori Pasquantonio and Erin McGinnis contributed four goals each. McGinnis added two assists.

The Saints (8-3), who had won three straight, got two goals in the first half from Merri Kennedy, who had entered the game with 33 goals in 10 games, but the senior was scoreless in the second half. St. Mary's Missy Holmes had two goals, and teammate Julie Kuehn added a goal and two assists.

St. Mary's opened the scoring less a minute into play, when Kuehn lobbed a pass in front to Kennedy, who batted the ball past Ali True (15 saves). Meghan Coakley added an unassisted score 4:24 later to give St. Mary's a 2-0 advantage.

Mount Hebron answered with three consecutive goals, two by Pasquantonio, during the next 2:17.

Mount Hebron opened the second half with a flurry, scoring four goals, including two by Nelson, in the first 8:04 to take a 10-5 lead.

"I think we played real well and hustled," Kennedy said. "In the second half, I think we were trying to force everything because we trailed."
