* 12-and-under girls -- The Severna Park Dreams remain unbeaten in the North County Girls Softball League at 13-0 after victories last week over Fort Meade and the Severn Sharks.

The Dream defeated Fort Meade, 16-11, as Meg Miller went 3-for-3 and Bernadette Wilsman, Lauren Richter, Michelle Meyer and Jaime Berg each added two singles.

Richter's 17 strikeouts helped the Dreams tame the Sharks, 20-9. Home runs by Miller (two) and Wilsman highlighted the offensive effort.


* 17-and-under boys -- The Arundel Soccer Association Strikers went 3-1 in the 18th annual Columbia Invitational Soccer Tournament, advancing to the semifinals before losing, 2-1, to the Central Jersey Eagles.

Lars Schultz (Annapolis) tied the game at 1 with less than 10 minutes remaining, as the Strikers played most of the game with 10 players because of a red card. The Eagles' Eric Keller scored the game-winner with less than a minute left.

The Strikers won their division during preliminary play, topping New Jersey state 17-and-under champion Union Lancers, 2-1, the Colorado Foxes, 3-1, and the Connecticut state champion Eastern Football Club, 5-0.

Against the Lancers, Steve Matcuk (Mount St. Joseph) and Bobby Thomas (Old Mill) scored a goal each. Mike Mazzola (Old Mill) assisted on Matcuk's goal.

In the Colorado game, David Winegrad (Annapolis), Nick Badalian (Old Mill) and Kenny Angyelof (Loyola) each scored. Assists were furnished by Steve Estrada (Bowie) and Thomas.

Badalian led the scoring in the Eastern win with two goals, followed by Schultz, Angyelof and Matcuk. Winegrad had an assist.

Throughout the tournament, the Strikers' defense was led by goalie John Smith, sweeper Winegrad and fullbacks Mazzola, Matt Benowicz (Severna Park), and Mark Chesla (Arundel). Coach Ed Rust also singled out the outstanding play of midfielders Ted Bromberg (Annapolis), Estrada, Matt Swift, Ted Sporrer and Rick Sporrer -- all of Chesapeake.

* 12-and-under boys -- The Severna Park Sting tied all three of its opponents in last weekend's Columbia Soccer Tournament.

In the first game, Billy Mooney's goal off of an assist from Mark Stickler gave the Sting a 1-1 tie against the Eastern Football Club Gunners, Connecticut 12-and-under finalists.

In the next game, Adam Young tallied the Sting's lone goal on a feed from Reb Beatty. In its last game, Severna Park tied the Ohio Premier, 2-2, the reigning Ohio state champion. Mooney and Joey Weidman booted in a goal apiece, and Jon Shedlosky added an assist.

Coach Mike Mooney gave Beatty Most Valuable Player honors, as he made several outstanding saves throughout the tournament, while adding an assist in field play during the first game. Outstanding defenders were Reid Shaklee, Sean McGarry, Tim Smith and Bernie Edwards.

In National Capital Soccer League action, the Sting defeated the reigning Virginia state champion Springfield Lions, 2-1. Greg Wojtech and Billy Mooney each scored a goal and Beatty collected nine saves. The defensive efforts of Steve Novak, Shaklee, McGarry and Smith helped to preserve the win.
