May 13, 1994|By Glenn P. Graham | Glenn P. Graham,Sun Staff Writer

Liberty will be the only boys lacrosse team representing Carroll County when the region playoffs begin today.

The Lions are the fourth seed in the Class 1A-2A West region and will visit top-seeded Oakland Mills at 3:45 p.m.

The two teams battled through three overtimes before Oakland Mills came away with a 7-6 win in the season opener for both clubs March 21.

The Scorpions tied the game with 10 seconds left in regulation and won the game with a man-advantage situation in the third extra session.

It wasn't the only tough loss for the Lions, who finished 6-5 overall.

They came within 24 seconds of dethroning county champ South Carroll, which won its eighth straight title with a 12-11 overtime win over the Lions in the county season finale April 29.

The Lions had an 11-9 lead over South Carroll when they called timeout with 41 seconds left.

It was the Cavaliers, however, who took advantage of the timeout. Dan Hughes scored with 24 seconds left and Adam Whittington tied the game with two seconds left.

Tom Luster scored the game-winner for the Cavs with 1:24 gone in overtime.

L South Carroll finished 5-1 in county play and the Lions 4-2.

The Lions are led offensively by Mark Aprile and Brendon Bengermino. Goalie Paul Lichtinger anchors the defense.
