Undefeated and top-ranked St. Mary's picked up its 11th victory of the season yesterday by defeating visiting Landon, 11-5, at Weems Whalen Field in Annapolis.

"This is an exceptional St. Mary's team and I hope they go all the way through and win the championship," said Landon coach Rob Bordley. "At least then we can say we lost to the best."

Landon, which entered the game undefeated at 7-0 and ranked No. 2 in the Washington Post poll, managed to stay within striking distance in the first half.

St. Mary's got off 15 shots in the first quarter and came away with only two goals.

Landon hurt itself with penalties and an inability to clear the ball in the first quarter that saw the Bears take just one shot.

After falling behind 3-0 on the second of three goals by Josh White, the Bears ended the Saints' shutout bid and cut the halftime lead to two on the first of four goals by Rex Hardy.

St. Mary's scored four straight goals in the third quarter to take a 7-1 lead.

St. Mary's Jamison Mullen led off the quarter with a pair of extra-man goals and the senior made another possible by stripping the ball and feeding Dan Marohl.
