St. Mary's senior defenseman Jon Cline doesn't know what it feels like to be on the losing end of a lacrosse game between archrivals St. Mary's and Severn.

Barring a strange turn of events in the MIAA A Conference playoffs, he never will.

Cline, who was a freshman starting on defense for Severn the last time the Admirals beat St. Mary's, improved his record in the rivalry to 4-0 and top-ranked St. Mary's upped its season record to 10-0 with yesterday's 16-8 victory over the eighth-ranked Admirals.

Senior attackman Dan Marohl shined brightest for the visiting Saints as he totaled four goals and five assists. Chris Criswell scored three goals for St. Mary's and junior Josh White had two goals and two assists.

In all, nine players found the net for the Saints, including Blaine Manning and Jamison Mullen with two goals apiece.

St. Mary's, which will host Landon, a team ranked No. 2 in the Washington Post poll, on Thursday, opened a 5-0 lead on a goal by White with 2: 35 left in the first quarter.

Peter Janney, who led Severn with two goals and three assists, put the Admirals (5-5, 0-2) on the board 38 seconds later and Ben Marchant pulled them to within three goals just over minute later.

Marohl ended the quarter by flicking a grounder into the net with : 05 showing on the clock.

The Saints added four more at the start of the second quarter and led 10-3 at the half.

"We knew they were good and we had a game plan. We figured we could take some time off the clock and control the game, but they have incredible sticks and they moved the ball great," Janney said. "I felt we really had a chance. We're a great team when we want to play, but sometimes we just don't think."

After upping the lead to 13-3 early in the third quarter, St. Mary's began substituting.

The Admirals welcomed the newcomers with a three-goal spurt to end the period.

St. Mary's put some of its starters back in the game in the fourth quarter and the move paid off 17 seconds later when Criswell scored unassisted to make it 14-6.
