April 09, 1994|By Jeff Seidel | Jeff Seidel,Special to The Sun

Mary Edwards scored four goals, and Alison Jones and Lauren Volk added three each, as No. 3 Loch Raven used a 12-goal first half to coast to an 18-2 victory over visiting Towson in a Baltimore County 1A-2A game yesterday.

Edwards opened the scoring for Loch Raven (2-0, 1-0) with a shovel shot at the 48-second mark. Then, 2:36 later, Heather Kormanik made it 2-0 on a free-position shot. But the Raiders had some trouble after that.

They created several good scoring chances, but their shots did not find the net. Volk upped the lead to 3-0 with 17:26 left, but it took a few more minutes for the Raiders to take off.

Starting with Robyn Harry's free-position shot, the Raiders blew the game open with seven goals in a stretch of 5:53. The lead stretched to 12-0 at halftime, and the game was over.

"I think we were shaky on offense at the start," said Loch Raven coach Wendy Galinn. "As the game went on, the shooting percentage got better and the passing got better."

Another big plus for the Raiders was controlling the ball. Loch Raven had possession for much of the first half, outshooting Towson (1-1, 0-1), 27-5.

The Raiders also won nine of 12 first-half draws, and Towson rarely gained possession.

For Loch Raven, nine players scored. Kormanik and Bridget Harthausen scored two each. Harry, Amber Marcum, Gia Trionfo and Courtney Martinez scored a goal each. Harry and Martinez each had an assist.

Kristen Carey scored both Towson goals. Carey got the Generals on the board with 18:42 left in the game and Loch Raven winning 13-0.
