Gilman's Lance Zimmerman said he was "shellshocked" at halftime of yesterday's boys lacrosse game with visiting Landon of Montgomery County. His top-ranked Greyhounds trailed by four goals, had lost nine of 10 faceoffs and seemed en route to their first loss of the season.

But the emotionally charged Greyhounds scored the first six goals of the second half of an 11-10 victory on its muddy field, improving to 11-0 on the season before nearly 3,000 fans.

A 19-time Interscholastic Athletic Conference champ under 25th-year coach Rob Bordley (342 career wins), Landon (9-1) brought a 28-game winning streak into yesterday's contest.

Zimmerman keyed the third-quarter charge by winning all three of his faceoffs and scoring two of his three goals for leads of 7-6 at 4: 20 and 8-6 at 2: 01.

Two-time All-Metro attackman Andrew Lucas scored the first three goals of the second half, including one from behind the back, and Gilman's J.D. Nelson won three of four third-period faceoffs.

No. 3 St. Mary's 10, Georgetown Prep 6: Senior midfielder Joe Thompson registered four goals and an assist to lead the Saints to a surprisingly easy win in Rockville.

Georgetown Prep, which suffered only its second loss of the season, took an early 2-0 lead, but two straight goals by senior attack Justin Mullen helped St. Mary's (8-3) tie the score.

Haverford (Pa.) 14, No. 7 McDonogh 5: The host Eagles were shut out in the first and third quarters of the McDonogh Tournament championship in Baltimore, leading to their first non-league loss in 55 games.

Junior attack Jed Prossner led McDonogh (8-7) with two goals and an assist in a losing effort.

In a semifinal game, junior attack Pat Shek (a hat trick and an assist) propelled the Eagles to a 10-1 rout of Gonzaga of Washington.


No. 15 Long Reach 3, No. 13 Arundel 0: Junior pitcher Kathy Drew limited the Wildcats to five hits over five innings, and the Lightning (12-1) tagged junior Sara Kriger with three runs in the top of the seventh to win the Arundel Tournament championship in Gambrills.

After sophomore first baseman Kari Filipowicz hit into a fielder's choice with one out in the seventh, Long Reach received consecutive singles from senior second baseman Rachel Jordan, senior shortstop Tina Rezaiyan, senior centerfielder Corinne Leith, and junior designated hitter Angelina DeVito -- all of which accounted for the only runs of the game.

Drew, who improved to 3-0 this season while striking out two and not allowing a walk, relieved starter and senior Kristen Schaper, who struck out nine and one-hit Elizabeth Seton of Prince George's County in the first semifinal.
