Second-ranked St. Mary's scored a 9-5 win yesterday over unranked Howard County power Mount Hebron in the fourth annual Maryland High School Lacrosse Showdown at Johns Hopkins University, a tournament featuring four of the area's better teams each year.

St. Mary's keeper Chris Garrity closed the door on Mount Hebron with 16 saves, three with his team two men down for 40 seconds.

Garrity also assisted on a goal by Chris Summers as the Saints (10-4) ended a four-game winning streak by the 6-5 Vikings.

For St. Mary's, which had feeds on all nine of its scores, Summers had two goals and two assists, and Tim Shanley, Justin Mullen, Joe Thompson each had a goal and an assist.

With the Saints ahead 6-4 at halftime, Summers sparked a 3-0 run in the third period. He first assisted Shanley with six minutes left in the third period, then scored on a pass from Matt White for an 8-4 lead 21 seconds before the fourth.

Mount Hebron was one for five in extra-man situations against Garrity and defenders Steve Kuehn, Kevin Stodd and Matt Pessango.

In the other Showdown boys game yesterday, fifth-ranked Boys' Latin (15-3) needed nearly three quarters to douse fired-up, 10th-ranked Dulaney.

But the Lakers did it, scoring seven second-half goals on the way to a 9-3 victory.

"We wanted this one big-time," said Dulaney goalie Nick Mowbray, whose team held Boys' Latin to a 2-2 tie at halftime. "We wanted it like a state championship game."

But in the second half, the Lakers' Chris Edwards scored all of his three goals and Dan LaMonica scored his one goal and assisted on four more during Boys' Latin's decisive 7-0 run.

For the game, the Lakers' Brian Nee also scored twice and had an assist, and Kevin Sullivan put in two goals.

Dulaney (6-2) lost a 3-2 lead late in the third period.
