* Under-19 girls -- The Severna Park Alliance opened its spring season on Sunday in the Washington Area Girls Soccer League under-19 Premier Division with a 0-0 tie to the defending Under-17 Maryland Cup champion Bethesda Blizzard.

Severna Park coach Tom Ehart praised midfielders Shelley Seivert (Severna Park) and Amy Adams (Broadneck), along with his defensive unit of Jessica Hines (Severna Park), Kristin Buckley (St. Mary's), Carrie Budzinski (Severna Park), Lindsay Waxler (Wilde Lake) and goalkeeper Erin Hon (St. Mary's).

Hon made 12 saves, including a shot from point-blank range late in the game, which assured the tie.

* Under-12 boys -- The Arundel Soccer Association Strike Force upped their Anne Arundel Youth Soccer League record to 2-0 with a 6-0 win last week over St. Jane.

Rick Swain led with three goals. Dustin Page, Brett Bosher and Nick Haramis each added a goal for the winners.

Michael Godfrey and Kevin Funk each were credited with an assist and Strike Force goalie Jacob Crouse helped make it a shutout.

* Under-14 girls -- The Arundel Soccer Association Jets tied Annapolis, 2-2, last week. Lindsey Stapleton and Erin Hartman provided the goals for the Jets (1-0-1). Katie Burrow and &L Stephanie Self contributed with solid play on both ends of the field.

* Under-10 -- The Arundel Soccer Association Thunderbirds played the St. Jane Panthers to a scoreless tie last weekend in an AAYSL matchup. Playing well for the Thunderbirds despite not scoring were David Drummond, Steven Williams and Rickey Posinsky.

The ASA Rockets downed Arthur Slade, 6-0, improving their record to 2-0.

Joe Griffen and Matthew Bury scored two goals each for the Rockets and Kenny Roberts and Rachel Jackowski scored one apiece. Also playing well for the Rockets were Robbie Self and Richard Burke.


* 15-and-under girls -- The Chesapeake Hurricanes recently captured the championship at the Boo Williams Basketball Tournament in Hampton, Va.

"We played great defense and came together as a team during this tournament," said Chesapeake coach John Foran, whose team competed in a bracket with 16 of the nation's top teams. "We proved we can play with anybody."

The Hurricanes opened the tournament by defeating defending-tournament champion Chicago, 56-54. Next, against New York they got off to a 28-4 first-quarter lead before winning, 66-35. They won their final game of pool play by defeating Connecticut, 52-45.

In the four-team championship round, the Hurricanes defeated last year's National Amateur Athletic Union champion Oxon Hill of Maryland, 48-39, and later claimed the tournament title by nipping Ohio, 38-34.

The Hurricanes were led by Nikki Teasley of St.

John's Prospect Hall, who was named tournament Most Valuable Player for her 73 points, 25 assists and 45 rebounds in five games. In addition, Melanie Morris from Seton Keough was selected to the All-Tournament team after racking up 43 points.

Also contributing heavily for Chesapeake were: Jennifer Holmes of Severna Park (34 points, 45 rebounds), Tara Foran of St. Mary's (23 points, 20 rebounds), Alicia Mosley of Mount Hebron (22 points, 15 rebounds), Kelleye Townsend of Hammond (21 points, 17 boards) and Katie Graw of Severn (14 points, 20 rebounds).

Angela Kennedy and Shannon Henley added 10 and eight points, respectively, for the Hurricanes and Monique Jennings (Severn) and Stephanie Paxson (Spalding) each added six.

* 16-and-under girls -- The Anne Arundel County-based Maryland Waves didn't enjoy as much success at the Boo Williams Tournament.

The Waves lost their opener by a point to Urbana, Ohio, but came back and defeated Roanoke, Va., 64-38, and the Philadelphia Belles, 68-45, to capture first place in their pool.

On Sunday, the Waves drew last year's 15-and-under AAU national champion Western Pennsylvania Bruins and lost, 63-43, in the single-elimination round.

Chanel Wright of Western led the Waves with 81 points in the four games, followed by Tikki Nicholson of Hammond with 54, Tameka Harrison of Hammond with 44, Sandy Jenkin of Severna Park with 27 and Lisa Jackson of Western with 12.


* Midget boys -- The Severna Park Green Hornets opened their season with a 3-2 overtime win over the host Davidsonville Gators in a steady rain on Sunday.

The Gators opened with a quick 2-0 lead and held the Hornets scoreless until the third quarter when Steve Kelly put Severna Park on the board with an unassisted goal.

Severna Park attackman Mike Cosper sent the game into overtime with the tying goal on a feed from fellow attackman Mac Chase with two minutes remaining in regulation.

The Hornets got the game-clinching goal on a fast-break assist from midfielder Jerry Cornett to Chase 1:40 into the sudden-death period.

The Severna Park defense was led by David Raush, Starke Muller and goalie Joe Kenworthy (12 saves). Attackman Drew Pfaff filled in for Kenworthy briefly and was credited with four saves in preserving the Hornet win.
