Roland Park routs Maryvale GIRLS LACROSSE

March 31, 1995|By Katherine Dunn | Katherine Dunn,Sun Staff Writer

The one thing No. 12 Maryvale cannot be without against No. 3 Roland Park is confidence.

Yesterday, the Lions had that confidence -- for about 11 minutes. After that, the Lions fell apart and visiting Roland Park rolled to a 12-2 victory in an Association of Independent Schools A Division East league game.

The four-time defending A Division champion Reds (3-0 overall, 1-0 league) played terrific double-teaming defense, came up with the loose balls, showed patience on attack and took advantage of Maryvale's defensive lapses.

On the other hand, the Lions (3-1-1, 0-1-1) did not help themselves much. They followed up almost every good play with a turnover or a defensive miscue.

"I think we just got out-psyched," said Maryvale coach Mary Clare McFadden. "We knew we were playing Roland Park and we let that beat us. We just felt too much pressure today.`

The Reds controlled four of the last five draws and scored four straight.
