Gail Decker scored with less than a minute left to lift eighth-ranked Mount de Sales to a 10-9 victory over No. 7 Notre Dame Prep.

The goal was the fifth in the game for Decker, a midfielder. Goalkeeper Rachel Sybor also contributed 15 saves in the lacrosse victory.

The Sailors, who improved to 15-1, appeared to be in control at halftime, when they led, 7-2.

But the Blazers (7-4), who were sparked by Lauren Keller's three goals, made a spirited comeback to tie it at 9-all, setting up Decker's heroics.

No. 7 C.M. Wright 3, Fallston 0: Laura Siler has pitched in all but one game for the Mustangs, and against the visiting Cougars in a Harford County League game, the junior pitcher showed why.

Siler struck out 13 batters and also drove in the winning run of her two-hit shutout victory.

Siler improved to 12-0, and the Mustangs to 13-0.

The game was still scoreless in the top of the sixth inning, when Liz McSpadden and Julie Wiess pulled off a double steal, with Wiess scoring for a 1-0 lead.

Lutheran 15, Friends 0: Lutheran sophomore right-hander Kelly Null struck out 14 of 15 batters in a no-hit shutout against Friends.
