Mike Obringer and Bryant Will scored two goals and three assists each, and Kyle Batton scored twice with an assist as seventh-ranked Dulaney came from behind to win its second straight 4A-3A state title, 11-10, over 14th-ranked Arundel last night at UMBC Stadium.

It is the fourth title overall for Dulaney, which also won in 1990 and 1991.

"Am I going to retire? I don't know," said Dulaney coach Gary Schreiber, 55, who finished his 22nd season. "This was kind of fun so I've got to sit down and think about it over the summer. I'm getting kind of old."

Obringer had assists on three of Dulaney's last four goals to overcome a 9-7 third-period deficit. Dulaney twice pulled within a goal at 9-8 and 10-9 on goals by Eric Wittelsberger (from Obringer) and Batton, unassisted - the latter with seven minutes to play. Obringer then assisted two straight extra-man goals by Will and Drew Adams' game-winner with 4:04 left.

"We get out of Baltimore County and have to face these tough Anne Arundel teams that play on a completely different level," said Obringer. "I knew there would be a lot of college recruiters and, if I played like I'm supposed to, I'll be going to college somewhere. We did it for Coach Schreiber since it might be his last year."

Matt Mindel, Jon Spivey and Jay Feeley scored once each for Dulaney. For Arundel, Mark Collier (two goals, two assists), Chase Gompers (two, one), and Mark Lanzer and Louis Gonzales with two goals each led a spirited effort.

Down 4-0, Arundel scored seven of the next eight goals to go up 7-5 with 10:07 left in the third period. Gompers made it 5-5 with an unassisted goal, Collier fed Joe Danahay to make it 6-5, and then scored unassisted for a 7-5 lead with 8:41 left in the third period.

Dulaney made it 7-7 with 6:54 left in the period. The Lions were within 7-6 after Will fed Jon Spivey, and the game was tied on Obringer's goal, assisted by Batton. But the Wildcats scored twice in a 42-second span, as Gompers fed Lanzer and Collier dished to Andrew Wheat to make it 9-7.

Dulaney led 4-0 early, but Arundel scored four goals, including three straight, and was within 5-4 at halftime.

Dulaney (14-3) scored its first two goals of the game within a 23-second span as Will fed Batton, and Wittelsberger dished to Jay Feeley. Dulaney led 2-0 with 7:30 left in the first period.

Goals: A-Collier 2, Gompers 2, Gonzales 2, Lanzer 2, Danahy, Wheat; D-Batton 2, Obringer 2, Will 2, Adams, Feeley, Mindel, Spivey, Wittelsberger. Assists: A-Collier 2, Gompers; D-Obringer 3, Will 3, Batton, Wittelsberger. Saves: A-Rennie 17; D-Reed 12. Half: D, 5-4.
