Late goal lifts Glenelg girls

Mount Hebron boys romp, 14-7


As she prepared to take the eight-meter shot with 1: 21 left to play and the score tied, Glenelg freshman Lindsay Lewis was "extremely nervous" and not exactly a picture of confidence.

"I thought I was going to miss it," Lewis said.

Not a chance. Lewis's shot found the bottom left corner of the net and proved the be the game-winner as the visiting Gladiators defeated Hammond, 11-10, yesterday in a Class 1A-2A South region game semifinal game.

"She's a tough kid," said Glenelg coach Ginger Kincaid of Lewis, who had three goals. "She doesn't act like a freshman."

Glenelg, which lost to Hammond by the same score during the regular-season, will play at top-ranked Mount Hebron tomorrow for a trip to the state tournament. The Vikings (17-0) won 27-1 at River Hill (9-5).

Hammond (8-6) went ahead, 7-6, on goals by Mandy Schroeder and Lauren Traber to start the second half. Stephanie Simpson tied the game for Glenelg (12-4), but goals by Courtney Vaughan, the last one with 12: 03 left, gave the Golden Bears a 9-7 advantage.

Glenelg goals by Kelly O'Connor and Lewis tied the game, and O'Connor's score with 3: 01 remaining gave the Gladiators a 10-9 lead. Hammond's Monica Serianni tied the game with 1: 52 left.


Mount Hebron 14, River Hill 7: After losing a regular-season game by 11 goals to Mount Hebron earlier this season, River Hill Hawks coach Jay Bond decided to try a man-for-man defense in the Class 1A-2A South semifinal.

It didn't work, as attackmen Mike Selawski (four goals, one assist), Bryan Warner (three goals, three assists) and Neal Goldman (three goals, one assist) to lead the visiting Vikings.

The Vikings (12-5), who barely survived an overtime win against Oakland Mills Saturday, will host Glenelg (10-6) for the regional championship tomorrow.

"The man-for-man surprised me," Vikings coach Jeff Doolan said. "We have seven games in 12 days so we slowed it down."

Glenelg 10, Long Reach 7: Brad Hanyok's six-goal effort led Glenelg past the Lightning.
