November 14, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Patapsco defeated Bethesda-Chevy Chase, 1-0, last night at Thomas Johnson to advance to the state Class 2A finals against River Hill.

Greg Hopper, the Patriots' leading scorer with 10 goals and seven assists, cut inside his defender after a quick restart, received a pass from Joe Pugh and scored from the left wing with 2: 19 left in the first half.

Patapsco (12-4) outshot Bethesda (9-3-1), 23-14. "But I thought it was a very even game," Patriots coach Dave Ingle said.

The unranked Patriots will play the fourth-ranked Hawks (18-1-0) of Howard County next Friday or Saturday at UMBC.

Patapsco has won regional titles three of the last four seasons and won its last state title in 1995.

No. 5 Oakland Mills 3, Crisfield 0: Steve Blakely and Jeremy Catlin each had a goal and an assist in the second half of the Scorpions' (15-2) victory over Crisfield (14-3) in the Class 1A semifinals at Old Mill. Scorpions goalie Chris Ebeling had eight saves.
