After falling behind 1-0 on the game's first possession, No. 6 Roland Park scored six unanswered goals before halftime and went on to defeat No. 12 Severn, 10-5, yesterday in girls lacrosse.

"They scored a couple on us and our defense lost a little bit of confidence and a little bit of poise," said Severn coach Renie Sotiropoulos, whose Admirals slipped to 5-2 overall and 1-1 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland. "Once you do that against a team of this caliber, they're going to take advantage."

That's exactly what the No. 6 Reds (4-1, 1-0) did with their superior passing, stick-handling and on-field communication, the result of their senior-dominant team.

Stanford-bound midfielder Kelsey Twist tied the game 1-1 at the 21:37 mark. Less than a minute later, Sarah Passano gave the Reds the lead for good, fueling their impressive transition game.

Twist made it 3-1 with the second of her game-high four goals, Alex Thomas (three goals, one assist) followed with a pair, then Alex Nolan scored for the commanding halftime lead.
