April 23, 1996|By Katherine Dunn | Katherine Dunn,SUN STAFF

Lauren Klein's goal with 2.5 seconds left gave No. 2 Garrison Forest an 11-10 victory over Bryn Mawr in yesterday's AIS A Division non-league meeting.

In a game of huge momentum swings, Bryn Mawr's Charlotte Graham scored back-to-back goals to tie at 10-10 with 43 seconds left.

Mawrtians' center Emily Hickman won the next draw, but Jacque Weitzel stole the ball with a check. At the other end, Cantey Boyd found Klein for the transition goal to win it.

Early on, however, it appeared the co-No. 15 Mawrtians (5-4) would run away with this one.

Using the combination of a strong set offense and a jam-packed defense, the Mawrtians baffled the Grizzlies at both ends of the field and ran up a 7-3 halftime lead. Hickman scored three goals and Kim Smith added two.

But Garrison (7-1) turned it completely around with a 7-1 run that ate away the first 22 minutes of the second half and boosted its lead to 10-8 with 3: 21 to go. Melissa Riggs had two goals in the run while Klein, Weitzel, Boyd, Courtenay Groff and Karie Reed also scored.

"We just took over the momentum," said Klein, who finished with four goals and two assists. "In the beginning, we weren't used to their defense. Everyone came down and it took us a half to adjust. Once we got used to it, we learned how to beat it."

Dulaney 11, Loch Raven 8. The No. 11 Lions recovered from a four-goal first-half deficit to beat No. 12 Loch Raven last night for the first time in the 23-year history of the Raiders program.

The Lions victory most likely will end Loch Raven's string of Baltimore County championships. The Raiders (4-3 overall, 3-2 league) have won eight straight, but the Lions (6-1, 5-0) now hold sole possession of first place in Baltimore County's Division I. If they win their four remaining league games, the Lions would play the Division II winner for the title.

Last night, the Lions dug an early 6-2 hole but they managed to climb out of it in the five minutes before halftime. Dawn Will scored two and Nicole Wittelsberger added another goal to pull within 6-5, but a Loch Raven defensive mistake resulted in the tying goal. On a loose ball rolling slowly toward the goal, a Raiders defender and then goalie Jebry Simon mistimed their efforts and the ball landed into the net.

The Raiders led one more time when Carrie Winkler connected Bridget Harthausen for a 7-6 lead, but the Lions experience showed as they scored five straight to run up an 11-7 with 1: 40 to go.


North County 12, Arundel 9: Wayne Feuerherd pitched and batted unranked North County (5-6) to a 12-9 upset of No. 1 Arundel (11-3). Feuerherd gave up seven hits and hit four batters in giving up nine runs, but helped his own cause with three hits and seven RBIs. Mark Williams homered for the Knights.
