September 08, 2001|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Severna Park and Severn added another exciting chapter to their 26-year-old neighborhood field hockey rivalry yesterday, and it was the top-ranked Falcons who came away with the bragging rights.

After falling behind 1-0, Severna Park (2-0) escaped with a 2-1 victory over the visiting Admirals yesterday on All-Metro defender Kelli Bowerman's score five minutes into the second half.

Off a set penalty corner, Lily Jefferds found Emily Swartz, who stopped the ball, allowing Bowerman to step up and fire a shot past Severn senior goalie Margaret Bates (14 saves).

The Falcons' first goal also came off a penalty corner, with Jen Maranto scoring just four minutes after the Admirals' Emily Mason had given Severn a 1-0 lead 11 minutes into the game.

"It was great to have two goals off of corners, because that was one of our goals this season, to improve on corners," Falcons coach Lil Shelton said.

Bates was strong for the Admirals (1-1), making several key saves against the Falcons, which had 18 penalty corners to the Admirals' three. Severna Park also outshot Severn 16-5.

No. 15 Forest Park 28, Southern 0: Senior Sheldon Campbell had 17 carries for 175 yards and two touchdowns, and teammate Donte Queen completed 7-for-13 for 105 yards and one touchdown to lead the Foresters.
