Randazzo helps Mt. Hebron top Oak. Mills, 13-5

April 18, 1996|By Stan Rappaport | Stan Rappaport,SUN STAFF

After lying on the ground in front of the Oakland Mills goal for roughly 90 seconds, Cecelia Randazzo walked to the Mount Hebron sideline looking for a bag of ice.

Her mouth had gotten in the way of a stick carried by an Oakland Mills defender. She was just about ready to put the bag of ice to her face when she turned to her teammates.

"Did it go in?" she said.

Yes they answered, laughing and smiling that Randazzo didn't know.

The goal was Randazzo's fourth of the game. Julie Kickham and Kyle Rutkowski each had three goals as the fifth-ranked Vikings won the league opener for both teams yesterday, 13-5, at Oakland Mills.

Randazzo was leveled right after taking the shot.

"I really didn't know if it went in," said Randazzo, a junior who plays third home. "I was lying on the ground. I didn't know if the goalie had stopped it or not."

Mount Hebron (6-1) was coming off Saturday's 8-6 victory over then-No. 1 Roland Park and, according to its players and coach, it showed.

"We were impatient and flat," said Mount Hebron coach Chris Robinson. "We definitely weren't mentally prepared. On the other hand, Oakland Mills is a lot better this year then they have been in the past."

Scorpions coach Chris Marsiglia agreed with her team's progress.

"We have improved," said Marsiglia, whose team lost, 24-4, a year ago. "The game was a lot closer then the score indicates. . . . They beat us offensively, because we had the ball as much as they did. What we have to work on now is taking advantage of our scoring opportunities." Mount Hebron goalies Kristen Foster and Amy Jagoda had solid games, as did defender Erin Curran, who took two first-half charges.

Amanda Downs scored twice for Oakland Mills (2-2). Stephanie Wu and Anne Ryder added a goal each.
